My telephone line went dead yesterday, I had run an telephone extension cable underground to the shed last year for my modem and it must have shorted. I used to have really poor internet wireless reception in the house due to the distance the modem was from the house so I decided now to have the wireless modem in Angies office in the back bedroom and run ethernet cable, which is thicker than the tellephone cable, to the shed and into a router there. I now have 4 bars on my wireless internet :) in the living room and 4 bars in the shed :) and ethernet so it has worked out ok.

Yawn, did I hear a yawn? Well whateva, its my blog and I'll blog about whateva.

Jessie , my one remaining doggy goes everywhere with me now, she loves it, she may only get to sit in the car while I do a housecall or drop a pc off or something but its like an adventure for her, I never really thought about it much before, but if your dog is in the yard all the time apart from a wee walkies in the morning it must be like being in jail.

What is Australia coming to, Mr Della Bosca resigned today amid revelations he had an affair with a 26-year-old woman. Bob Hawk would have got a medal and a lifetime free box in the Sydney Football Stadium. This thought brings me to the weather, and Scotland, and Australia and thoughts of moving back to Scotland. Why? well its bloody perfect weather here mate. August has been the warmest on record and driest in 19 yrs. And its not just the weather I've had the busiest week ever cos people were waiting for me to get back to fix up their computer problems. Idealy 6 months in each country would be ideal.

An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog.As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. they fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word.On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?""I sure did," responded the pessimist. "He can't swim."
