Ah, I see you have the machine that goes ping. This is my favorite. You see we lease it back from the company we sold it to and that way it comes under the monthly current budget and not the capital account.
In countries with a hot climate it may not be a good idea to drink tap water without boiling it first, or you will have to live with an adequate portion of chloride in the water.
Also, here we least have a good recycling system in place. You pay a deposit of 25 cents for every bottle and get it back when you return them. The people want their money back, so at least in theory they don't just throw the bottles away and hopefully the bottles are really recycled after that.
I would like to see you using the bloody tap in some of the places I visit for work.
Then I would not see you for days, because you wouldn't leave the w.c. in best case, or the hospital in worst case.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
... it does. We haven't been feeling too Christmassy - what with the funeral any all - but today is the day I have to get the tree and decorations up. Needless to say, Dij the Cat wants to help. Or possibly eat me. It's difficult to tell. Until you have had a cat leap at you from the inside of a Christmas tree when you try to hang a bauble, you don;t know the meaning of the word arghgetofofityoumonsternoowowow... Then it does get worse. A kid tried to kill himself by throwing himself off the bridge over the river and has very badly busted his leg. So the road is closed, and emergency services are trying to get him out without doing any more harm. And my neighbour is involved in that for complicated reasons, so his wife - who is a carer - has to go to work but can I look after the grandkids? OK ... so I need to arrange a lift for Herself (as I have no booster seats I can't take them with me) so she can get home, as I can't leave sprogs aged 5 and 8 alone in the house.
Any idea what you do with kids? I'm totally out of practice, but I've given them the Amazon Prime TV remote and left them to it - and them have chosen the black and white original version of "The Wizard of Oz" which shows remarkable taste for their age!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

You appear to have handled the kids just right. All kids that age need is a little amusement, and occasional feeding. As long as they're not tearing the place up or trying to kill each other, you're doing a good job.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
5 & 8 sounds like a demolition tag team! I think TV is the way to keep them occupied. Just don't let them near Netflicks I still get blamed for selecting 'Use This For recommedation', it was late I was drunk and 'Hobo With A Shotgun' sounded like a good idea!...
I'm at a bit of a loss because I was arbitrarily and randomly fired in the past week, finishing on Jan 2, with no payout of leave entitlement. Still not entirely sure why, I was working hard, doing good things. So I figured I'd drop in on old friends.
Howdy, CG. Am in India on an emergency visit to look after my 97-year old dad who fell ill in October. Working remotely for now and hope to be able to return to T.O before long. That sucks about being let go.
