    He hasn't come out of the bushfire crisis well, he should have been more proactive than he was.

    Living in the bi-lingual Philippines, some great uses of English appear in government. In the UK we have "the Prison Service", but over here it is "Bureau of Penology and Jail Management', a much more flamboyant title ( not that I have ever had anything to do with this institution I hasten to add).

    I was perfectly happy with Windows 7 on my pc. But as it's no longer supported by MS, getting a free upgrade to Windows 10 was a nice surprise. I never expected that.

    Not been a good week for me, so thank you Canaries for ending it on a high!

    Still very tired and sleeping for around fifteen hours a day, all down to four weeks of intensive radiotherapy.

    Arranged to meet two granddaughters in town, one is 18 and the other is nearly 3, so we ended up in McDonald's where the young one had a happy meal.

    She dropped her toy under the table by my feet so I put my hands on the front of the seat to push the chair back to retrieve it for her.

    Big mistake! The "chair" I was on was in fact a fixed stool. I have gone off the back and landed hard on the base of my spine then carried on backwards and smacked the back of my head on the floor.

    The place was packed and I immediately had dozens of people buzzing around so I did the very British thing of saying, "I'm okay. I'm not hurt!"

    I was, in fact, in agony, and to a lesser extent, I still am! <yikes>

    As they say, there is no fool like an old fool!

    Or a fool on a stool!

    Gosh sounds like you've been in the wars, hope you get well soon and have a good week!

    If you've whacked your head, make sure you get it checked out, my cousin ran into someone playing cricket and whacked their head and got internal bleeding.

    Look after yourself!

    Today is palindrome day, when the date - in this case 02/02/2020 - reads the same way back to front.
    It will not occur again in our lifetime.
