Good luck with the PC sorting Gaynor; I uploaded latest Win.10 browser and it stuffed up part of the Windows mail; sent items end up in Junk..... Microsoft glitch not mine ! I ordered a new computer to replace Mike's Win.7 and it came yesterday so had to set it up for him and transfer stuff from his old Win7 and save it on the new one. Also been clearing out two huge external hard-drives and incorporating them on to a new one and then taking the older hard drives back to factory settings; only done one so far but I'm needing a break as I'm all floppy disked out LOL I need a new computer but have put it off for a while as I can't bear the thought of setting up another one at the moment and I'm still deciding whether to kick Microsoft into touch and going iMac for laptop. Right now.... I'm off to soak my frazzled self in a bubble bath ha ha ! Do hope you get things sorted Gaynor, when Microsoft had that big glitch a couple of years ago it was fixed via 4 appointments online and remote access assistance. It worked well.

Gaynor, Sorry to hear you have computer problems. Hope you can sort it soon. I'd be up the proverbial without a paddle if I didn't have Mr GB to sort things for us! (Not that I'd actually submerge the laptop, but I trust you know what I mean--lol!) Pete, nice to hear from you. Hope you are well. Love a banjo (despite all the jokes about them!) and a uke--the more the merrier, and Hazel says she has a sturdy balcony...
Hi all, I messed around all day yesterday with computer, it came on by 9.30p.m. I tried it again this morning and it has been perfect. Had a long, long e-mail from IT Buffs telling me what to do to change settings, I said it was OK but they could have it back if it fails again. Lovely to hear from you again Pete, your banjo ukulele will be on hire for our orchestra at Hazy and Mike's new abode:-) and the Greyhound is one of my favourite dogs, so big and placid, gorgeous dogs, we used to have a lurcher or two around back in the day.
Hazy - your brain must be huge to cope with all that, I am in awe. I managed to get this back on but only with so much trial and error.
Wendy I will do your head in again, the laptop is now a Windows 10 to match the PC!!!!!
Couple of pics to change the subject:- that is if I manage to find them!!
The re-sizing needs attention:-)
Hee hee, at least it worked.
I've cracked up you know:-
Glass of red wine needed now:-)
Lot to learn
Lol Gaynor, great to see the lovely pics of the spadger group and the GT; looks so inviting in your garden for them. Also glad your computer is working again and can understand the total frustration of it all; mine still has a glitch with gmail v win,10 mail putting sent items into junk, etc, think the two companies are probably blaming one another for the software bug so not sure it will get sorted very soon ! ........ meanwhile, I have a cracked bathroom tile being replaced (you don't want to hear the sound as they bash out the old one in my beautiful new bathroom ! ) and also have a plumber arriving this morning to take 5 radiators off the wall (these are the very tall modern ones) so we can get the hallway and one wall in the lounge papered - eventually ! In-between that a couple of jobs on snagging list with door that wouldn't close properly and I have to have granite specialist when they can arrange it to buff the island worktop as there was a scratch on it (probably from workers dumping their tool bags down ! ) ....... so I started early this morning with a nice shower, washed and blow dried my hair so at least I start the day off feeling good LOL Hate to think at the end of the day how I will look ha ha .... onwards and upwards as they say, we'll get there eventually. At least we'll be living on carpets by the end of the week :)
