    jokes bad or otherwise.

    This wee joke in today's Herald (Glasgow) Diary really had me chuckling: A COLLEAGUE approaches, but too late - he caught our eye. "My doctor," he tells us, "said I need to do something that gets me out of the pub. So, I've started smoking." :02::02::02::02::02:

    Windows 10

    Had to throw in the towel and revert to Windows 7 on my laptop. Just could not get it to work with my Norton Internet Protection. Every time it was restarted, the Norton was missing and I got in a right mess reloading. And, of course, now there are wee glitches on Windows 7.

    Political persuasions ?????????

    Just seemed the best place to put this! A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to...

    Most annoying modern day gadgets. Tv show. anything really

    Forgot to say that whilst compiling my last rant I was reminded of the time I complained to a credit card company/bank that the authorised signature strip was far too narrow only to be told by them that they did not manufacture the credit cards.

    Most annoying modern day gadgets. Tv show. anything really

    A long time bête noire for me, excessively nit-picking on-line payment routines, and I wouldn't mind but it just happened to me again in conjunction with this website. Went to make an on-line payment and filled in all the details including all the card numbers etc. Some requirements auto-filled...

    Did I miss something

    I do wish I could think of other instances, but it strikes me that this is a Foggy characteristic, the sudden contribution of a total no sequitur. It is somewhat typical of some I know. They suddenly realise that contrary to where they think they belong, at the centre of attention, they are...
