April 2013 Blog Posts (10)

Hello again!

I last wrote a blog more than a year so as I had to get my laptop out and do it on that! Now I find I can post on my iPad and its way easier to do! Not a lot going on in my life just the usual everyday happenings of a large extended family! I am still an avid people watcher and have whiled away many happy hours. Whether this is a legitimate hobby is open to question! My police officer son threatens to lock me up if I take Eilidh(3)again! I am willing to risk it though and she enjoys it too----I… Continue

A word of warning!

On good Friday my washing machine started going wrong by Easter Sunday it had packed up altogether. The machine was a replacement for one that had caught fire (Very scary) So I phone Hotpoint and as the machine was out of guarantee they went through my options, I said I'd probably be better off buying a new one, but the guy on the line said my one was expencive at nearly £600.00 and I was advised to go with the option of a years protection plan for £179.88 (apparently everyone goes for this)…

A Sad but True Tale Of Misguided Inner Cleanliness

Health and Safety Warning:-

This is not a tale suitable for those of faint heart, delicate constitution or sensitive stomach.

A piece in the Middlesbrough Gazette recalling the days of the magnificent public slipper baths in the town center reminded me of an article that I produced some years ago for the edification and horrification of my old Royal Navy pals on the occasion of our fifty year reunion.

I reproduce it here for your perusal and delectation.

A Sad but…

So nine…

Copying old record discs

Hi all, I've been busy lately copying old records to MP3.  The software I'm using works like a dream.  So far I've copied around eight double sides and this has only taken up about 700megs, so I reckon that I can easily get the rest on about a 1.5GB total.  All the disks are in good condition, so I'm looking for any one who can find them a good home when I'm ready to part with them (totally free-of-charge of course!) They include some 45rpm singles and some old 78rpm singles.
