And there was I thinking that I was the only dinosaur still wearing a watch :)

Nothing on today. Resting after taking Georgia to hydrotherapy yesterday. It is a long drive down lots of narrow muddy lane followed by a return in the dark. Used to do it with ease but do not enjoy it now. Then there was the acclimatising Georgia to going in the tank and letting her know that she can get out again. Put a little bit of water in. Put more water in until, eventually, she is "working" to walk on the treadmill through water. Just a couple of minutes at first but building up as she strengthens up. Twice weekly for quite a while. Very proud of how she responded to the, very strange, experience. The specialist vet phoned to see how she got on and said he wants to see her on Monday. That is another forty minute drive. I wonder if her pet insurance pays mileage? :)

All I see on TV are people wearing black screen watches. Fit Bits, Apple watches and the like. Then they plead poverty.

If you can find owt of course.

I just bought a smart watch for myself, well I did but Liz is giving me the dosh as she never knows what to get me, great bit of kit tells me all kinds of health stuff and was quite cheap, and you can get them even cheaperer.

Don't feel any need for a so called 'smart' watch when I have several that provide me with the time.
Am I supposed to ditch perfectly serviceable items to go must have stuff?

No, but you are living in the past a bit though.

Agreed Kev. And quite happy to do so from what I am seeing of the present.

What kind did you buy Kev?

Ray, Chris and I always comment on those that plead poverty and sport amazing nail art and beautifully quaffed hair styles. One lady was getting dog food, free, from a charity because she could not afford to feed her dog. She reached out her beautifully manicured hands adorned with lovely bracelets to get them and put them in her, high end, car. She didn't look as though she, unlike her dog, went without food very often.

I expect if I had a smart watch it would have told my ma blood pressure was up the creek sooner.
Anyway, I had a busy day part I have reported on the health thing, I took the VHS video and CD player to the shop, they are going to see if it´s repairable, if not dump it, I also took a box of different fittings that I have no idea what to do with and he laughed and said they were Stone Age so I suppose he meant they aren´t any use these days :D. I also went to Aldi to buy toilet rolls and came out with a recipe for 43.11€, hopefully with the 44.02€ I gave Lidl yesterday and the 31.68€ I spent on dog food I won't need to go shopping again for a while.
Posted off the Passport form and photos as well so hopefully your post office won't hold on to that for too long before delivering it.

If you get into the habit of checking your bp at the same time every week it will up show any abnormalities. Then you can adjust the 'dose' to suit or see the Doc.

Morning

I'm having a tooth taken out today! I have had an extra rogue tooth growing inside the line the of my upper teeth for over 40 years now. It's been a nuisance as food gets trapped between it and my line of teeth plus I occasionally bite my tongue, so enough's enough!

Another, hopefully, quiet day today. I still have to give Georgia her ten minutes road walk twice daily and then her physio exercises 2/3 times per day followed by the laser on her joint.
England are playing tonight. I wonder which team my brother, in America, will support? Did anyone see any of the photos of how the Japanese team left their dressing room after playing? It was absolutely immaculate! There were even some little origami models left on the table. Then I heard that their fans went around the stadium picking up all the litter so that it, too, was left immaculate! Makes me want to go and live there :)

I was fortunate to stay in Tokyo for a few days some years ago. Immaculate place and immaculate manners. Also I have never seen so many vending machines in my life - you could literally live out of them with seemingly everything available via the machines. None of them vandalised either and no sign of rubbish or graffiti.

Haven't they vending machines that you can also live in (sleep)?

As little as possible is what I´m doing today.
I have had an email from my gas supplier this morning, redirected it to Heike and Jürgen, I will never get the hang of these bills. Anyway up I don´t have to pay anything until Dec. But I have to wait for another email that will tell me what my new monthly payments are. Not one word of apology for not answering the half dozen or more that have been sent to them without having a reply other than the automatic one that says they will deal with it and you needn't contact them again. I imagine they received the letter I sent yesterday with all their email in as well as my present meter reading and that's why I heard this morning.

I think I read about what you are referring to. Sleep pod type things.

It was the first time that I came across hot coffee in a can where the can came out of the machine cold; you then pulled a ring pull which set off some kind of chemical reaction which in turn heated the coffee in the inner can, so to speak. It tasted fine too.

Yes G, you can do anything and come up with something that resembles Coffee but tea is far more discerning.
Try explaining the difference between Boiling and Boiled water to a Colonial.
