Oh, that's right - you said you were having a power cut for some maintenance. What kind of vegetables can you grow in your climate?

Not too sure yet, Drac, but I think cabbages, potatoes, green beans, peas, onions, carrots, parsnips and beetroots. This dump site is walled in on 3 sides by a dwarf wall, which is exactly what you need here in Orkney for shelter from the high winds, and we will pile up all the "detritus" to make the fourth wall. I see there is a Sanday Gardening Club on FB which I have just joined.

Those are exactly the ones I would have guessed you could grow. Yummy!

In a word, NO! I had a feeling this sound system was going to blow you away!

Have you attempted to connect the TV signal yet so you can watch television in that room? And how do you like that monitor?

No, the tv card will be the very last thing to sort out on this PC. Oh, and I love the monitor - obviously I have only been used to the 15" laptop screen, so this 24" monster is wonderful. But first I have to test drive this PC with a game, dont you think?

Yippee! I wondered when you would get to it! I can't wait to hear which one it will be...

You got a free code for some game with your video card, didn't you? Daylight if I remember? I think it's a good creepy zombie game and maybe not quite your "cup of tea!"

But do make sure you set up the TV card as soon as you can to be sure it is all working properly. If there is a problem, it would be good to let them know sooner rather than later.

I will set up the tv card soon, but not this week - I am supposed to be working on the paperwork for my Court Summons instead of playing around with this PC!

I think I will play the RealMyst Masterpiece game which came in the post this week.

And tomorrow I have to try and hook up the new router
