If there’s one thing about computers, or should that be computer software, that gets on my tits it’s when an application unexpectedly stops working in its usual fashion. This time it’s one of my email accounts that’s gone AWOL. I’ve dug through all the settings and can’t see any obvious change. I’ve contacted the support team but they have been as much use as a chocolate teapot appearing to know even less than I do. I have now given up, crossed my fingers and hoping that it starts working again just as suddenly as it stopped.

Phew, What A Scorcher!

I’m not designed to operate in extremes of temperature so I’ve been spending a lot of this heatwave hiding in the coldest part of my house, the living room. Handy for summer but a bloody nightmare during winter. I’ve been trying to remember back to 1976, the last big heatwave/drought, but the only thing that readily comes to mind is Night Nurse winning the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham. My priorities were different back then.
