PC s and other funny things...

Hi Folks,

Well instead of taking my very sick PC to the hospital, I gave it a rest while Rob and I went down to visit my 'wee' (younger) sister in Dumfries and guess what - when I returned and played around with it for a while the ruddy thing came alive..... So, after all the flippen hours I had spent with my books etc trying to make sense of my PC and trying to get photos on my system to work all of a sudden it changed it's mind and decided not to give up the ghost after all .

It's working as it hadn't done for months..... weird, very weird !! I haven't a scoobie what in blue blazes has happened, but it's definitely working better than ever - how long it will last? God knows !! Maybe it was the threat of 'dustbin city' or 'the firing squad' that did it ?? Anyhow, I ain't questioning anything - I will just take every day as it comes and hope it doesn't let me down out of the blue... I must admit that it encouraged me to buy one of these memory sticks so that at least if my system was to take a dive then at least I would have it holding my saved documents and photographs .

My visit with Rob to Dumfries went off really well and on the way back to Glasgow Rob, L, Rach, J and I called at the Gretna Gateway (Outlet) site where we scooped up a few bargains for Christmas pressies and I also bought a ' remembrance of Dorien' present with some of the money which was part of my share from her estate. I bought a beautiful brown leather 'Domo' handbag which had been reduced from £100 to £85 and then down to £35. I must admit that I have never spent that much on a handbag in Lord knows how long and today I went to one of our markets today and swanked it around ...... hehehe...

On checking around the net this morning I came across the next couple of items - Enjoy !

'Smart Ass' Answers - 2009 ......

3rd Place

The policeman got out of his car and approached the boy racer he stopped for speeding.
'I've been waiting for you all day,' the bobby said. The kid replied, 'Yes, well I got here as fast as I could.' When the policeman finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.

2nd Place

A lorry driver was driving along on a country road. A sign came up that read ' Low Bridge Ahead.'
Before he realised it, the bridge was directly ahead and he got stuck under it. Cars are backed up for miles. Finally, a police car comes up. The policeman got out of his car and walked to the lorry's cab
And said to the driver, 'Got stuck, eh?' The lorry driver said, 'No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of petrol!'

and the Winning Smart Ass Answer for 2009 ?

A teacher at a polytechnic college reminded her pupils of tomorrow's final exam. 'Now listen to me, I won't tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. I might consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury, illness, or a death in your immediate family, but that's it, no other excuses whatsoever!'

A smart-assed guy at the back of the room raised his hand and asked, 'What would happen if I came in tomorrow suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion?' The entire class was reduced to laughter and sniggering.

When silence was restored, the teacher smiled knowingly at the student, shook her head and sweetly said, 'Well, I suppose you'd have to write with your other hand'.
Uh Oooohhh !

When things go wrong,
as they sometimes will,
When the road your trudging
Seems all uphill,
When the funds are low
And the debts are High ,
And you want to smile,
but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with it's twists an turns,
As everyone of us must sometimes learn
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it our,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you cannot quit.

Are males and females born this way ???
