Lang May Yer Lum Reek Dear Stumblers

I hope you had a pleasant New Year’s Eve and had a dram - or two, to celebrate. I still haven't taken Corbin’s advice nor solved the OneDrive irritation, but it does give me an excuse for not writing anything sensible. And, computers and I have this non compatibility problem. Presumably I’ve told... Sign in to see full entry.

A Scam - or A Scam?

Do you believe this? My inbuilt cynicism may have a lot to do with my disbelieve, but to me it sounds as unlikely as a politician’s promise during an election speech. A news report told of a retired couple who were victims of a scam, which cost them over $3,000. A caller on their phone - that’s like... Sign in to see full entry.

Did I ever tell you about my Mammogram?

Yes I’ve had a mammogram; now you know why I use ‘dunthat’ as a pen name. (No, I haven’t given birth - yet.) It was my suspicious Doctor’s idea after he saw me scratching my left breast. “Men can get breast cancer as well, you know.” The test was clear, but I made the big mistake of mentioning it to...

Thank you Corbin-Dallas

For what? I’m still trying to figure that one out. Oh, I know, I asked Corbin in a recent comment if it was possible to make money on Facebook. He gave me an answer that had me slapping my forehead and startling the dog with my groan of personal frustration. ‘Enter - How to make money on Facebook -... Sign in to see full entry.

Largest Yellow Diamond in the World

I have just finished reading about the 552 carat (karat) diamond unearthed in the Canadian Arctic circle. Apparently a karat is equivalent to 200 milligrams, (which I am informed is just over 7 ounces of weight when used to describe a precious stone or pearl.) The article took me back a few decades...

Starbucks Tazo Tea

My apologies, RPresta, I screwed up again. After reading your latest comment I decided to look up Starbucks Tazo - I’m doing nothing else, OK! And this is what I found on Wikipedia. Tazo ( /tɑːˈzoʊ/ ) Tea was founded in 1994 by Steven Smith. [1] The manufacturing and distribution was maintained by... Sign in to see full entry.

Tassology - A Medal if You Know What it Means

OK smarty pants, I’ll mint your medal when you let me know what a ‘ querent ’ is. No wonder I have so many migraines! I was simply pouring a cup of coffee, looking out at the non stop snowfall, when the stray thought filtered into my mind. Remember when you used to drink tea? And remember when you...

You’re Welcome CCT.

I’ve done you a favor and deleted it sooner. I apologise for posting the question, and putting other bloggers in such a position. I apologise especially to RP, Corbin, FSI, and CCT. Your answers were logical, reasonable and sensible, and basically covered all the feelings I’d had. (Did you like the... Sign in to see full entry.

Getting Rid of Those Callers

I accidentally discovered how to get rid of those irritating callers as they try to sell you windows, decks, phones, TV’s and Viagra. It was during the summer months, when one female voice phoned and got my name wrong but asked me how I was feeling. “I feel wonderful,” I said, “How are you feeling?”... Sign in to see full entry.
