I have been using Cole online grocery shopping, coupled with the Coles credit card for free deliveries over $100 for years. It's been useful due to health issues (knee, knee replacement) and when Wing was working for companies that sent him out and about for weeks. Today, I go to... Continue reading
Even though it's been 16 months since I had the total knee replacement, I have been having chronic, sometimes jacking up to sharp, pain on the side of my shin, that would run down to the top and side of my foot. Today, I had the muscle pressure test done.... Continue reading

More like not quite right. He's back to being ravenous all the time, and peeing where he shouldn't. I know diabetic cats have a problem with their bladders feeling over full, and having to empty it, but he went from doing well and normal, to constantly hungry, getting twitchy and...

They are the only ones that will post to one of my blogs. It's kind of a pain. Turns out I should have kept Office 2007 instead of upgrading to 2010 a while back, because you can't connect or post to certain blogs with Word 2010, but can with 2007.... Continue reading

I can't get by taking only one lorazepam a day. Last night, after only taking 1 tablet a few days, my right my leg would not stop kicking and twitching last night. I even felt my foot wanting to 'curl' under. Felt pins and needles in my right palm, too.... Continue reading

Did I say dislike? No, I mean LOATHE. Windows 10 took into its programing to 'scan' two of my external drives. One drive it wiped every file out of that in one directory of one drive, and then blew out the partition on another drive. I am currently on my... Continue reading

Plodding through the last of the Windows 7 Cumulative updates. Started with 18 of them, been working my way through the list in chronological order. I read people raving about Windows 10, how great it is, but I read even more people ranting about it, especially since many tried and... Continue reading

He's resorting to sleeping on my foot. Since I had the total knee replacement, I can't cross my left ankle to the top of my right knee, because the right knee hurts when I do that. And I can't flex the right knee enough to rest my right ankle on... Continue reading

For our 19 year old refrigerator. Luckily I noticed it before everything in the freezer thawed. It was the the small turkey I got last weekend that was frozen that kept most of what was in the freezer frozen. Measured the how wide and deep the now dead fridge was,... Continue reading

Slogging through all the Windows 7 "Cumulative Updates" I passed on installing so I could keep using one my favorite Blu-Ray players. But it's come to the time that I just uninstalled it, and have installing the rather backed up Cumulative updates. There are quite a few, but they take... Continue reading

We discussed the blurry vision when trying to focus on something (like reading books) and it is a normal side effect of Lyrica. It *should* settle itself after a while. Discussed the Lorazepam. I told him I was taking half of what he proscribed. I had tried with the two... Continue reading

Before dawn, I felt a nip on the back of my upper arm. This isn't anything unusual, as it's something Keito has done for years. But when he didn't get the response he wanted, he *bit* me. Hard enough to bruise and break the skin, but not hard enough to... Continue reading

Skylum has come out with Luminar Flex, which as far as I can tell, is Luminar 3 but without the system crashing 'cataloging' feature. It claims to support Lightroom (classic) and Photoshop, but the plugin didn't install in Photoshop CS6, even though there was nothing about what VERSION of Photoshop... Continue reading

Just when I was getting close to.. appreciating Windows 10. Shut everything down as normal, and when I booted back into Windows 10, it all seemed to go ok. Tried to start my browser. It wouldn't start. I tried to start compatibility mode to see if that was the issue,... Continue reading

I was so so when I went to bed last night. I have no idea why, but all I know is I couldn't get to sleep because of it. Got up, took some ibuprofen/paracetamol tablets. Must have worked because the next thing I knew, we were being annoyed by three... Continue reading

I updated my tablet driver, as the Wacom Desktop Center instructed. Rebooted and wow, color me so not surprised, Windows 10 no longer detected my tablet. I did all the at home trouble shooting, uninstalling everything, rebooting, reinstalling, rebooting.. nada, bupkiss. Called Wacom help center, and a very nice young... Continue reading

Now I know why some animals gnaw their own feet off to escape. I have done EVERYTHING short wiping the hdd (or throwing it out the frigging door) to fix whatever the MS Tech support did to 'help', and nothing is working. Cumulative updates will NOT install. Bluetooth that worked... Continue reading

Because of the knee replacement, my right foot and ankle have an issue with swelling. Doesn't matter how active or inactive I am, it puffs up. Doesn't hurt, but is uncomfortable, and rather unsightly. A pudgy baby foot only looks good on a baby, not an adult. I have tried... Continue reading

A few years ago, we switched to the NBN, and when negotiating the switch from Naked ADSL to NBN, I clearly stated that our phone number was to be ported over to the NBN service, that we did NOT want a new phone number. I was assured by the sales... Continue reading

Saw Dr. H. yesterday. No more Ativan 2.5 and only 1 Lorazepam in the morning, maybe another one in the afternoon, and then Lyrica before bed time. I can after a week or so, if I don't wake up groggy, take another Lyrica at the start of the day. I've... Continue reading

Managed to get to Sculptures By The Sea at Cottesloe beach for some sunset photos. I got one in particular that probably pissed people off standing behind me, but it was so worth it. Funny thing happened though. A little boy, about 3 maybe 4 years old… if I had... Continue reading

Nor did I know how to use it, I shot all my photos as high res JPGs. Now, everyone knows that now there are raw editors, and I alos know how to use them now, but what to do with the old JPGs? Are they to be relegated to the... Continue reading

Microsoft's answer to fixing to small, almost negligible problems, with Windows 10 is like killing a mosquito with a sledgehammer. After an update, that 'succeeded', I noticed task manager wouldn't run. Since I subscribe to "Assure", I hopped online, and told them this one itty bitty problem. Well, the first... Continue reading
