Ben's Buddies

Good afternoon Buddies  

We have had rain this morning and oooking looked we are going to get a little more too 

Preferably to that hot sun right now though 

Have happy Friday  

 

Sings, I’m singin’ in the rain, just singin’ in the rain...coffs enough of that row 

There's a new mountain in the Lake District. Miller Moss had been recorded at 609 m (1,998 ft) which was below the 2,000 ft requirement to be a mountain but it's been remeasured at 610.1 m (2,002 ft).

Shirley has just rung me again to say my ISP address has been compromised and my internet will be disconnected in 24 hours time unless I press 1 to speak to an advisor who will get my ISP address changed and my router amended.
As I wasn't disconnected either time Shirley rang me I'll take my chances and ignore her

Afternoon all 

Mostly sunshine with a couple of very light showers.

We’ve been over to my parents. I did the shopping and housework and MrY cut the lawns for them.

lol El, I don’t blame you for ignoring Shirley’s advice.

Lovely singing, Moonie 

 

Yogi, well done

 

Oddly enough, since Shirley has started ringing me, the number of times I get rung by someone from Microsoft/Windows/technical support has dropped. It's clealy a coincidence as I wouldn't want to imply that the Windows scammers are cutting costs by not having people wasting their time ringing people who know it's a scam and just concentrating on those who don't realise

 I think you might be onto something, El.

Evening troops  

 

Hope all are in fine fettle and enjoying the cool spell. Not bad here. Silly season in full swing but then it's the silly season 24/7 worldwide these days. Trust our four-pawed drives are in good spirits too and Yogi - hope the ankle is getting much better 

 

Keep taking care all and have a good weekend

I was wondering there El 

Where do you come up with these pieces of trivia from El?

 You’re welcome, and thank you 

*night owls* sweet dreams yogi  

 

i hope youve all had a good day  

 

El, that’s just it- everyone wants a holiday hair cut.. so we’re really busy. One of my colleagues is on holiday too, which makes it even busier for the rest of us... we’ll soon be back to normal  

meanwhile, my mum is being really helpful and I’m enjoying having her around on a regular basis  

 

what are you all doing this weekend? 

Good morning everyone

 

Here it's a sunny morning and forecast to have quite a lot of rain from noon for the following 24 hours (not constantly raining, some quite light but also not light).

 

Summer, that explains it

 

Yogi, I'm glad your Dad's recovery is continuing

 

Ros, that Parker probe is due to be launched within the next hour. Assuming that's a success we won't get much in the way of news for some 7 years. As you say Jupiter is awesome.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

The Singin' in the Rain sequence is one I've seen so many times over the years and I remembered that it ends with a policeman looking at Gene Kelly disapprovingly. He doesn't say anything but realises that Kelly isn't drunk so let's him go on. The policeman isn't listed in the film credits but is identified in the cast list on the IMDB site. So it's not a case of knowing these things but more where to look them up.

Not that willing El  

I can’t even read that let alone pronounce it El 

Jockenese Rules 

Moonie, in Hawaiian there are the 5 vowels each with a short pronounciation and a long one (shown with a line over the vowel) and there are just 7 consonants ((h, k, l, m, n, p, w). A consonant has to be followed by a vowel, so something starting with 'wh' for instance doesn't exist. That means that a word always ends in a vowel.

I’m glad I’ve got the channels back but hubby is still considering leaving Virgin when our contract is up.
