Keema,karma,korma,kermit-am getting confused-are they all edible?

Kate I share your pain-life was easier before everything was hi-tech-you can even sign at our doctors without standing at a reception desk.

Golf costs £2.50 a round-it is a question of priorities-£2.50 is a lot of peas- 250 to be precise

kate1123

I am plucking up courage to call again, it is not the receptionists fault but I do want to complain.

I have never counted peas? Can  you not practise in the garden?

sotongeoff

A doctor practising in the garden?-that would cut down on building costs-sounds like a winner to me

The postman has been kind-a letter from Inland Revenue about a tax rebate-that will  buy a few peas-and my fuel pipe -mower up and running again

kate1123

I am seething after 12 minutes on the phone they have no appointments, I am once again in the twilight zone.

Geoff invest your rebate in lucky tickets.

sotongeoff

It is not my rebate so the matter is out of my control-I was in mid-mow and it is drizzling -that is a pain

How can a doctor's have no appointments -that is not on-have you been told to phone back or just sit in the waiting room?

I was mid planting this morning when the rain started.

The issue is that I rarely go, so each time they have changed the appointments system, apparently I have to phone back in the morning if I want an appointment in July. Will they have any appointments left when I phone tomorrow, 

sotongeoff

In the olden days before the appointments system-you just sat in a waiting room and shuffled round-like waiting for a hair cut-the appointments system is ok but who is ever ill in a queue-don't they do emergency appointments?-change your doctor perhaps?

I have finished the mow-it will want doing again in a few days-don't remember it ever being both so thick and lush

kate1123

It is like a game, I will phone tomorrow, They will say no, I will complain to the NHS again. I think changing my doc may be the best idea.

OH mowed this morning, our grass looks a little yellow, pink and white

sotongeoff

Those are flower petals, petal

Mowing in flip-flops-a good idea?

On the local news yesterday-I know I shouldn't -they kept mentioning a hotel, that will give you a refund on any booking made in August of £10 per day for each day  it rains-nice free advert via the BBC?-they are probably fully-booked now

kate1123

I am happy with flowers in the lawn

Flip flops are only for holidays

Is the hotel at the airport?

kate1123

My computer crashed

Should I be worried that someone goes to watch the tide come in?

sotongeoff

What happened to the computer -for future reference-and how did you get it back?

kate1123

It brought up a blue screen with lots of white writing I left my finger on the power button for 30 seconds and that eventually turned it off, I then turned it on and cleaned the cache and it seems to be happier now.

Do we know why that happened or happens?

What is a cache?

kate1123

The cache is where the computer stores pages that you have already looked at today so that you can access them faster.

I have too much software and documents and every week microsoft sends me more updates

sotongeoff

Is cache different from history?-I think I need eddukating

kate1123

I believe cache keeps the page where as history just keeps the name of the page but they are closely interlinked.

TV is very sparse tonight

After Corrie -I have nothing to interest me -will have Borgen to watch in the morning-so am in viewing wilderness till then-looks like songs around the piano again
