DJ - plaited!

Oh No - Monday Morning!!

... And what a start to the week poor DJ had, made even worse by the fact that I didn't report back to his friends yesterday. So, withapologies from me, I will get on and tell you how the poor boy had to start his week!


As I drove to see DJ yesterday, I stopped at 2 different shops for carrots - there were none to be had. So, I thought I could borrow one of Toni's ... no luck, she had been competing over the weekend and they were still packed in the horse-box, somewhere.

To say DJ wasn't pleased to see me was putting it mildly - even though I had taken out a handfull of his feed in a bucket. It was only as Conrad came cantering over that DJ thought he ought to see if he could get some as well!

So, once I had given him some, he was "OK" about walking in!

Then in, he had to suffer my camera on him from time to time, as I had promised a few of you some photos ... They are here, if you missed them yesterday.

So, poor boy, a tough start for the week.

We went out with Toni and Junior (Smudge was recovering from a busy weekend), and with Ros and Shadow.  We went up to the Church and round the village. 

DJ decided that having been so good last week, he would continue that, but also he wanted to keep going at a good pace.  Which was great, but didn't really want to listen to me when I asked him to slow if one of the others wanted to!

Once back, he had a feed, and then back to his field - and a good roll, just as you saw in the photos!


Right - now I must get off to the shops and buy some carrots ready for tomorrow!!

Computer Woes!

Remind me again why I have a computer ... Oh yes, my LJ friends!

Last night I got in from orchestra rehearsal and realised that I hadn't typd DJ's report up for him (!), so turned on, to find that my computer had deleted my Anti-Virus protection ... so, that was how I spent the time late last night, getting it re-laded, and then scanned!!!

Then today I got this e-mail, and although I am sure that you have read it before, I couldn't resist sharing, as they are (sadl;y) so true!

For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way computers have enhanced our lives, read on. :-

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated ...

'If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon..'

In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:

If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics (and I just love this part ):

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash........
Twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of the roads.

6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single 'This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation' warning light.

7. The airbag system would ask 'Are you sure?' before deploying.

8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

10. You'd have to press the 'Start' button to turn the engine off

PS - I'd like to add that when all else fails, you could call 'customer service' in some foreign country and be instructed in some foreign language how to fix your car yourself!

James - buzz cut & name.

James In Moonshot - Monday 20th July!

Yes, can't wait - 40 years ago I remember standing in my back garden with Dad looking up at the moon - Now I know who I was looking for - James. On Monday ITV (in England) is showing the film, and in case you have forgotten - James is playing Buzz Aldrin.

I don't usually buy a TV Mag, but have just bought TV Times and have scanned in the interview that was in there - one with James ... they are behind the cut ... Just hope this works!!!!

What Frozen Treat Are You?

I know, I have been spamming over the last couple of days ... especially with all the pics ... so now I have snagged this from larabeckinsale  and will now try to keep quiet ... until tomorrow!!

You Are a Snow Cone
You are lighthearted, playful, and optimistic about the world.
You're always having fun, and you're not the type to turn down anything sweet.

People might be surprised to know that you're very sensitive.
Even though you put on a brave face, your feelings are easily wounded.
