I am still finding it somewhat incredible that Camilla's computer and mine should have gone down on the same day and more or less at the same hour as each other. And it couldn't be anything to do with Purple Coo as my broken computer I use just for running my ancient business software and so isn't connected to the internet at all. It really is uncanny. Perhaps something for the paranormal forum. I have woken repeatedly in the night wondering what I might do if the guys at Gadgetmaster don't manage to fix it. Although my data is backed up I will only be able to upload the data to an ancient computer running my same superseded and obsolete system of accounting software.

Well, it's a wet and blustery morning here and as I went out with the birdfood the seagulls were flying high over town, fleeing the no doubt tumultuous coast. Yet at the same time crows were flying low and fast in the opposite direction, like a squadron on a low level attack mission. Neither seem to have had a problem with the wind. Nothing stopped at my bird table, however. Sad

Before leaving France last week we stopped at the famous biscuit factory in St Michel Chef Chef - or rather at their wonderful emporium that sells every kind of French biscuit you have ever dreamed of, mostly in presentation packs. I was much taken with a large tin of biscuits in the form of the legendary liner the SS Normandie, whose sad history I may tell you about one day or you can look it up on Wikipedia. Forget the biscuits, I thought, the model alone with its white paint and red funnels was worth the £25 they were charging. It's a Christmas present to myself, though come to think of it maybe it has brought its own curse with it and laid it on my computer before beetling around to Norfolk in the night to sabotage Camilla's.

Have a good day all you young folk. Very HappyVery Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar It's a week for laptops, our elderly neighbour's got stuffed by the latest microsoft monthly update and HO has spent the last several days trying to kick it onto life again (seems a lot of people on the home edition have had problems after the September update).

What kind of biscuits do the French like Fennie?

Fennie's Avatar Mostly butter biscuits, FN, with lots of sugar. They aren't my favourites (give me a good old digestive any day) but they try hard to be craft made and flavoursome and certainly after eating a tiny one the after taste will keep you going for half an hour. Like very good dark chocolate I suppose. The biscuits go very nicely with champagne, though. Very Happy

Fairy Nuff's Avatar I can't imagine them eating many biscuits more patisserie and cakes. Biscuits seem to go more with tea drinking people.

Camilla's Avatar Yes how odd it is Fennie that both our computers went down on the same day at practically the same hour too. Fingers crossed yours gets sorted out for you soon. Mine will be back again hopefully by 10 days time and thank god I still have the warranty so don't have to pay.

Very mild weather here today and just wore a long sleeve t/shirt with sleeveless Gilet, walking makes you warmer too. Seagulls here too flying overhead and lots of Crows about also.

Enjoy the biscuits Fennie at least you will be able to refill the tin again with your digestives afterwards, I am rather partial to a digestive biscuit too. I am sure buying the ocean liner tin didn't put the mockers on our PC's Fennie.Very Happy
