Hi, @Yogi19

I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble!

Anyone else having issues? 

I’m posting this from my iPad, and things are loading quickly for me. I assume you are using Safari? Can you tell me what version of the OS you are using, and what version of Safari?

I’m on Software Version 12.3

Not sure where to find out which version of Safari

 

Ros is having trouble too but I don’t think she’s on an iPad

If you’re on 12.3, you are running Safari 12 (I just found out). I’ve just updated, so I’m now on the same version you are, with the same experience.

Do you have another device you could try on, like a phone, laptop or desktop?

@Lori I tried on my iPhone last night and it was running slow too.

Things do seem better this morning.

Good morning everyone

 

Cloudy here. The rain hasn't started yet but is expected very soon and it could be the wettest day in my part of the country this year - heavy rain followed by thundery downpours. It's called Storm Miguel, name given by the Spanish forecasters.

 

I hope people's forum speed problems can be sorted.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Afternoon all 

Weather started off bright and sunny. We managed to get the lawns cut and the garden tidied. According to the forecast we were due some rain in the early evening but it has appeared now. 

I hope you are all having a good day.

Pages seem to be loading at normal speed 

 

Edit: post went through at normal speed too

Yay!

We also have rain: went to my grandson's baseball game, and sat miserably in the cold and rain for 2 hours--TWO HOURS. The least they could have done was win the game! 

 Don’t you just love being a grandparent.

Well, yes, actually...and a good part of being a grandparent is that you don't have to attend EVERY game.

But this was the first game of the championship series, so it was important, even if the weather didn't think so.

Near the beginning of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey written 1798/9:
"Mrs. Morland was a very good woman, and wished to see her children everything they ought to be; but her time was so much occupied in lying-in and teaching the little ones, that her elder daughters were inevitably left to shift for themselves; and it was not very wonderful that Catherine, who had by nature nothing heroic about her, should prefer cricket, baseball, riding on horseback, and running about the country at the age of fourteen, to books—or at least books of information—for, provided that nothing like useful knowledge could be gained from them, provided they were all story and no reflection, she had never any objection to books at all. But from fifteen to seventeen she was in training for a heroine; she read all such works as heroines must read to supply their memories with those quotations which are so serviceable and so soothing in the vicissitudes of their eventful lives. "

Me too, it’s the best thing ever.  All of the fun stuff with very little responsibility.

Best of all is when they say those magical words, “I love you, Granny”, they melt my heart.

My 6 year old granddaughter is learning massage, meditation and mindfulness and she chose me to go into school as her massage partner. The back massage (over the top of clothes) was lovely - little fairy fingers- but I ended up with a bad hair day following the head massage.

That is fantastic!!!!! I absolutely LOVE that her school is teaching the children these things  

Good morning and happy 200 sleeps til Christmas! it’s raining heavily here and it’s been non stop since yesterday afternoon. I splashed in a lot of puddles this morning!  

Last night I went out with some friends for a lovely tapas evening, the food was amazing. 

how are you all? 

Summer, you and Christmas I'm glad you had a good evening

 

Yesterday's bad weather in my area hit two high profile music events. The Olly Murs event at the Kingsholm stadium went ahead though fans got a soaking with several having to leave. Then at Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, which is near Cheltenham was curtailed. The earlier All Saints event went ahead but the later Will Young one was cancelled due to thunderstorms making it too dangerous.

Afternoon all 

We’ve had some sunshine and now dark clouds are looming.

Good to see you back, Squiggle 

El, what a shame the weather affected the concerts.

Summer, I agree it’s good that the school is teaching the children that their mental and emotional health is important too.

lol at 200 sleeps till Christmas.

I hope everyone is having a good day.

Good evening at last the rain has stopped, and my desire to put on a Christmas movie has subsided (for now) lol I watched the first episode of The Crown instead, it look like it’s going to be very good have any of you seen it? 

I’ve watched series 1 and 2.

Have you had a good day? 

Good morning everyone

 

Some sunshine here, showers possible later. From Monday afternoon for the rest of the week it's forecast to be wet most of the time in my part of the country.

 

The Crown is unavailable on Freeview.

 

I hope everyone has a good day

Yogi, I think you are right about The Crown being only on Netflix. It's not something I would watch anyway as it contains material which if on television would be post watershed. I'll stay with Victoria - saw the final episode of the lastest series yesterday. Unless they've changed history, Albert hasn't died at the end of the series as the Crystal Palace exhibition was in 1851 and he didn't die until 1861. The series seem to span about 5 years each so logically his death would be at the end of the series after the next series.

Athough the fifth series of Poldark is the final series to be made (starts next month) the door has been left open to return in future as there are 5 books left in the series of 12 (books 1 to 7 cover 1783 to 1799, then there's a gap with books 8 to 12 covering 1810 to 1820).

Good morning everyone

 

Fairly cloudy here but bright at present - the rain is forecast to arrive in a few hours time - one weather site has 23.6 mm between today and Saturday, another 128.6 mm

 

I have a straightforward client meeting this morning.

 

I hope everyone has a good day
