Bought a crock pot yesterday and included in the safety instructions was: -

 

"Do not leave unattended when not being used"

 

What will it do?

 

Also smiling 'cause - lamb shanks for dinner!

Rikkitic:

Open package. Eat nuts.


Actual text on packets of peanuts on US airlines. The obvious question has to be how anyone who actually needs those instructions would ever be able to read them.


 



Many years ago a friend was cabin crew with Air NZ. She said that several times they had seen people from small nations not far from NZ, when making their first air flight and being presented with the inflight meal, open the sachet containing the moist towelette and try to eat it.

When your daughter, who is a student in another city, sends an impromptu text to say she is coming home for the weekend and your teenage son decides he’s not too busy with his mates and we all get to go out for a lovely family dinner.

Grandstream GWN7600LR outdoor slave AP on duty (beside the already used GWN7610 indoor master AP). Next is to evaluate the claimed 300m WiFi radius.





No backup, no pity. Anyway, RAID isn't one.

When on my Sons 9th birthday he swims 40 lengths of a 25m swimming pool, twice his previous best, just for fun.

 

Is even more gleeful when I admit I can't do the same, and neither could his mother.

iPhone rang just now. I was sitting at the MacBook and the phone was across the other side of the room. I was able to take the call on the MB - first time I have done this.

2 things that made me smile recently:

Getting mistaken as being Japanese by attendants in Kyoto. I got greeted with a string of Japanese words (sentences? don't know!) every time.

Once they worked out that I wasn't, I found the vast majority could speak very good England.
