SR - orchids are the natural contrararians of the botanic world. My zygopetalum suddenly decided it was time for the new flower spike to die this weekend. No explanation I can find. Am somewhat disapointed as I'd been looking forward to wonderful scent. :(
Ta, P - went for the white background once I realised that all the shots featured both the ironing pile & the vacuum cleaner Seemed easier to Photoshop them out than to start all over... ;)

I am looking at moblog before I attack my ironing etc....wish I could photoshop it away.....

hildegard says:

Take a photo, remove the ironing, send the photo in for rasterbation then suspend your giant ironing-free image in front of the ironing.
Sorted. :)

well if photoshop does ironing, I'm all for it. How is it with painting new cupboards--just photograph them, change it all to white, and presto! this is going to save me a lot of time.:)

Lovely plant ....

hildegard says:

Ms F - The Beat, maybe; also known in the States as The English Beat? Or maybe the International Beat?
As to the playlist, I've been feeling a bit retro lately - yesterday it was Krautrock, Beefheart & Van der Graaf Generator. :)
Your Terry Hall secret is safe with me...

Ms farmboy says:

yup, youre right, simply The Beat!
your diverse musical knowledge is way over my head
Super re Terry...

Get yourself a LastFM account & you too can listen to bands you'd entirely forgotten... ;)

'get yourself a lastFM account'...sigh, if only it were that simple Hildegard. Took me ooooh 6months of standing behind phil while he explained Moblog before i 'got it'... Come on, I POSTED MY EMAIL ADDRESS! hangs head in shame....

Ach, so what? You've deleted it - if you were really IT hopeless you wouldn't have managed that. ;)
Anyway, if you can cope with the complex demands of a Parsons Russell terrier, computers should be a pushover. Just treat them like slightly deaf, slightly bonkers great-aunts; speak to them slowly & clearly, ignore occasional failures in manners & don't try to understand their stranger quirks, just accept the weirdness & move on...

I see that msfarmboy now has her own blog, awaiting a photo post. Moving on up. :)

Msfarmboy says:

um yup post.. As soon as the guys at Virgin/sony ericsson make any sense at all to me re setting up my phones email i'll be right on it!
and Hildegard, i do like the analogy!

hildegard says:

Ah, Virgin email. I see your difficulty.
Unless you want to be absolutely live, suggest you use the data cable, Bluetooth or infra-red to send them to your PC from your phone, then email them from there - it's usually cheaper to send them that way & you can edit them before you send (cropping or adjusting contrast, etc). Nige used to swear by a free bit of software called Picasa that organises your photos & lets you edit them using very straightforward commands.
