  1. Aha, we met for a few minutes only last Monday, hope to time it better next occasion. A lady called Christine from Auzzie joined the conversation for a while but I've not heard of her on this forum. Have you? Deigh

    Getting the hang of timing for the chat room but finding that my clumsiness in typing is holding me back. By the time I have a reasonable reply typed in the chat has moved on and is often off the page. I will have to find how to increase the size of the page for this program to work for me. It got a bit crowded today,Thursday midday my time, evening the day before for you! Christine from Australia joined it and it was 1030am Thursday there! Gets a bit confusing! Deigh

    Thanks for understanding, that incidence has taught me a thing or two. Firstly is to make sure I know exactly what I want before leaving home and to avoid 'winging'it. I can make myself understood fairly well but not if I get flustered or am required to make instant decisions. Then I can completely lose it! I am fortunate to live in a country where one's shortcomings are allowed for and shop assistants are pretty tolerant of the disadvantaged! Deigh

    Heading should read 'Red Glass Cabinet extension' but I stuffed that up too! Deigh

  8. After four years I thought I knew how to handle the problems left me by my stroke, last week proved me wrong! My wife is approaching her eightieth birthday and I decided that for the occasion I would make an extension to the cabinet containing her ever growing collection of red glass. My plans required that I visit the local hardware shop, purchase a set length of Melamine shelving and have the store cut it to lengths to suit me. First problem was that the different lengths were not displayed in an orderly fashion and selecting a piece to fit my requirements meant me working out the most economical length to suit proved a little tricky. My brain would just not cope with the simple mathematics to do this and gentle prompts by the assistant did not help! I needed to sit down at a desk with paper and pencil but this luxury was not available and as a result I chose wrongly and had tremendous wastage of expensive material. This was a blow both to my pocket and my dignity since making instant calculations and decisions is a norm in engineering! Deigh

    Paul, The pixillation problem we discussed before has changed! It used to roughly form a 'C' shape, recently it became colourless for a day or so and last week it turned around and faced left rather than right. I kept looking at it and gradually it got bigger and bigger till eventually vanishing! It is quite amusing to follow, what it does, there is no problem with it being there! Deigh

    I'm the worst backseat driver ever, I admit it. My wife is a good driver except for her judgement, she is overcautious. Approaching a roundabout is like being in a bumper car, stop, go, yes, no, and she misses the obviously safe occasion to enter quite frequently. If we lived in America we would have to endure a hundred protesting horn honkers. It is only because this country has more tolerance that we get away with it. I try to shut up but sooner or later my frustration shows itself and she gets furious. I'm surprised our marriage has lasted 58 years. Deigh
  14. Take it easy Tracy.....We still havn't met in the chat room! Deigh
  15. Jim, Welcome to the club that no one really wants to join! You have found the site a lot earlier than I did in my recovery journey. The first few months left me very confused and unsure at what had hit me. This site gave me the opportunity to discuss my problems with people who had faced them themselves and were prepared to offer solutions. Deigh
