Doh! My own joke has come back to bite me.

 We've so far found 3 / 8 of them. Thanks Lesley

Laser Snake or old man grumpy

Bought some beers for me and Mr P on Friday. Can you guess which ones are for me?

Dive bar Old Town

Popped into this dive bar in Old Town after some great burgers. The paintings on thev wall disturbing to say the least. Zoom in to see my favourite.

Great views

Although colder than expected the views were great at Cindy's.  The beer was pricey though.




I'd like the 1983 Bordeaux please

April had the half day off yesterday so we met her at a restaurant near her work.  She really enjoyed looking at the menu.


Why so expensive

I tried to get a data only sim for my new tablet but it looks like it's a lot more expensive that is worth it.

I was hoping to get something at $5-10 / month for 2gb or so but the cheapest I could get in the shops was around $40!  Why so expensive?  My fixed term mobile contract works out at around $24 a month and that has calls / texts and 5gb a month.  Ridiculous.

I think i'll just use my phone as a mobile hotspot instead.  The annoying this is that there is a constant notification that there is no sim in the bay.  It's not the end of the world I guess.

New tablet

After finally breaking my last tablet a 6 months+ ago (water damage, cracked screen), and having a very nice laptop I thought I didn't really need to replace my tablet. However, in reality I don't dare use the laptop in the bath or just throw it in a bag and carry it around with me. It's still fairly heavy and far too expensive to abuse.

I've been looking at replacing it with a new one but couldn't justify spending a lot of money on a decent one so have just put up with not having it. I finally cracked last week when I saw the same one I had for sale on e-bay for $130 delivered.

I'm using it now to post this and am very happy with it. This one also has the capability to add a sim card for roaming data.

Something's looking a little off with my weather app

Let's hope so, as Lesley and Stuart will have to bring quite a range of cloths otherwise.

Florence gets a remote too




















New toy for Florence



















She's fascinated by our TV remote so we got her one of her own.  We need to find a mobile phone too.
