Fun Monday Oct 12
Wendishness is hosting Fun Monday this week.
This week it’s all about gadgets! I would like to know what gadgets you can’t live without and those you could get rid of. It doesn’t matter what part of your life or house they dwell in, whether it’s the kitchen, your desk, shed or any other place but what works well for you and what doesn’t? I would prefer you take photos but I know for some that’s not always as easy s0 do whatever works for you. Most importantly – have FUN doing it!
I've got to admit to being a gadget geek, (not that I understand their technology... I'm
just a compulsive collector) I've posted about some of these things in the past if you
want to have a look go to;
Global Positioning Sally.

More on the washer
Meanwhile... back at the ranch,
A little over a year ago I bought a largeish LCD flat screen TV having become enamored
with them on a stay at FD and FOSSILs home. (Favourite Daughter and the extended
URL for Favourite Son In Law)
Sad to report it died, no, this isn't a rant about things that die just AFTER the warranty
expires, there is a generous 3 year warranty, its a rant about being deprived of the great
picture and also the video player/recorder that requires more cable connections than
my puny 2nd TV/or I am capable of making.
We have 2 major codes of football here in Queensland, both of which have played their
Grand Final matches on said puny TV, now I'm not fanatical about football, but these
occasions are just made for BIG screen TV, not puny size TV and I couldn't even record
them for later playback.... are we getting the idea about the gadgets I miss most?
All of the above just highlights the fact that I can't even try out the latest gadget I've
bought, A Media Player which will enable me to view my photographs and videos on the
big screen TV (no need to enbiggen!!!)
The service people are replacing the panel for me and have promised the return of my
toy as soon as they can meanwhile I'm stuck with PUNY... pas the Valium please.
This photo shows my new
Media Player waiting to be installed
While on the right you can see the puny TV in all its glory
(and probably some dust if you enbiggen the photos).
All of this without even a mention of my Computer... More Valium please.
