Thanks, I knew you’d know the name. I remember the reports being that phone lines were jammed, etc. But I never understood how it was more than regional because radio stations were regional. A panic in a large city though feeds on itself no matter how small the original audience was.

The movie is on Amazon, but I understand it has a cost. Still trying to find a link though. The first one in the Seychelles worked for me. I’m guessing locally the .sc was truncated which gave you a site you were sure I didn’t reference for you!

Yep, mines done with that too. And our precinct isn’t really likely to be crowded.

Ok, the multiple choice quiz answers are in the box.

And by multiple choice - did you notice how many choices there were for that first question? Over twenty I think.

Well y'all, my computer is on the fritz and I can hardly see anything on this itty bitty iPhone screen. Not to mention that the screen bounces as I'm typing. DIZZY!

Hope to see y'all in a couple of days if I can figure out how to get this thing to boot up.

Well, the new computer came today. That's 2 days early!

Now, if they would but train these puppies to unass themselves from the box, park on the desk, and set themselves up, I might just find myself a happy face.

And, of course, l don't have 2 AAA batteries for the new keyboard and they won't arrive until Thursday. Meanwhile, all I have is this silly little keyboard at the bottom of my screen. Hunk o' junk!

Anyway, I'll catch up with y'all when the batteries arrive. If I keep typing on this screen, all I'll end up doing is b*tching.

I don’t recall needing batteries but it’s not exactly the same machine. Laptop?

I’d think you could plug in a different keyboard even on a laptop.

Meanwhile what size batteries does your mouse take? TV remote? Flashlight in the kitchen drawer?

Yeah, mouse requires AA battery and keyboard requires 2 AAA batteries.

My last computer (that just died) was also an "all-in-one" and I was able to add a different keyboard and mouse. Both types were "plug-n-play" where you stick the little thingy in the USB port and it loads itself up and you're ready to go. I'm sure that comes in handy for those who need to type with different language keyboards...

Have the new computer up and running...after a lengthy session with the fabulous tech bubbas at Dell. But they wore me out and so I'm gonna tuck me in early tonight.

See ya'll later.

And hope this thing doesn't go blue screen on me again when it starts running those infernal updates!

Been one heck of a week.

First, while it may not rate as much compared with what you all experience, last week's storm was the most violent I have seen in many a long year, and it was followed a week later by the first hail storm I can remember. While some suburbs copped golf-ball size, all we got was tiny pellets.

Then, after seeing my first koel, and the return of my possum, I saw something else which had me absolutely delighted.

Feeding the birds, I saw a swarm of butterflies. Totally unexpected. It began with dozens, but within the hour I'd estimated hundreds.

Then I read there were millions seen.

Don't remember ever seeing this, though it has happened before.

Hoo boy.

As I told Reed, two hours after polls closed my Socialist ALP looked a safe bet.

By the time counting finished, they had an absolute majority so will run the State for the next four years.

Looks like politics had nothing to do with it. Instead, though our Premier has been criticised for closing the State because of COVID-19, it looks like that was the dominating factor.

The Capitalist leader, after first saying she would stay on, has now resigned.

It's not easy being green.

(Or so I've heard.)
