Re: Long Day

This is sounding quite serious now. Keep us posted as I'm sure we're all thinking of you and Dave. My other half had a heart bypass 12 years ago and is starting to show signs of more narrowing of the aortic valve. He was trying to knock down a snow overhang a couple of days ago and had quite a funny...

Re: Long Day

That was scary for you both, good to hear he's a bit better now. All these symptoms are worrying when you start getting on in years, we tend to think the worst and it's a relief to know it's not too bad. Hope he's home soon and that the beer was well-received!

Re: Happy New Year 2018

A bit late but HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! Drac, your breakfast sounds scrumptious and I note the two bottles of beer on the back of the truck. Purely for marinating the steaks of course. Starlite, the card is beautiful. Lady K, looks like my grandson in Halifax will be getting the brunt of this storm, h...

Re: My Xmas Present!

I meant what OS are you and hubby using so that we can "emulate" you!

Re: My Xmas Present!

Thanks, I'll check that out. You and Hubby sound like sensible people, we may emulate you next year! (What OS are you using?)

Re: My Xmas Present!

Can you come to my house? Actually I do have my original XP and hope I'll be able to activate it. Microsoft is also funny about how many times one can do this. I think I also have my old 98 somewhere. All one can do is try! I didn't actually agitate to get this, it was just a bit of a wish, but we'v...

My Xmas Present!

Bri gave me Windows 10 Professional which will be an upgrade from the present Win 10 Home. I've been wanting this for ages as it has an emulator that Home doesn't have and I'm hoping I'll be able to play some older games. I'm a bit concerned that there may be an issue with 64 bit, but we'll see. Her...

Re: Merry Christmas to all Manorites

Merry Christmas from Brian and me too! Just finished opening our gifts to each other - much more chocolate than is good for us but what the heck, eh? Lots of snow here and just about to start shoveling paths for the dogs out back, no doubt finding lots of "goodies" buried along the way. Ho...

Re: This is really getting old - crah reporter message

As a bit of an aside, after reading the above I thought I'd try installing CCleaner to see if it could solve a small problem I've been having with an occasional pop-under. (Ladies with the sort of boobs that make one feel inadequate!) Anyhow, I missed unchecking the little box for installing Avast a...

Re: Favorite videos

Just realized I spelt it wrong - should be "tourtiere". It's basically a meat pie, made from a mixture of minced beef and pork. Here's a link to a recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/20752/fren ... tourtiere/

Re: Favorite videos

Oh my, that takes me back. My French Canadian uncle who had the most beautiful baritone used to sing this every Christmas Eve at the family gathering at my grandparents. He sang it in French, of course. "Minuit Chretien". Still brings tears to my eyes. BTW, my British grandmother used to m...

Re: Netflix Stranger Things

Tons of good things on Netflix, but lots of dross as well. Good idea is to always check the rating of a program on IMDB before you find you've wasted an hour of your life you'll never get back. (Speaking from personal experience.)
