8 Days a Week


Bali 2010 – won’t be long until I’m back there.

Eight days to go to the cruise! Just collecting all the documents together, eTickets, boarding passes, luggage labels, hotel bookings, flights from Beijing to Hanoi and Hanoi to Bali, etc etc. My mate Jan gets nervous if he can’t see everything done. That’s OK, so do I, but it’ll be alright in the end is my motto.

I had a good comment about packing: lay the suitcase contents out on the bed, then take half the clothes and twice the money. <g>


We all seem to be feeling post reunion blues, a flat feeling that it’s all over and a need to keep meeting. That’s fine with me. I think we all need some company. I do.


I bought a new phone two weeks ago (HTC Desire unlocked for $138) but after 24 hrs just about threw it against the wall and went back to the old one. Too soft when it rang, couldn’t hear it, couldn’t seem to change ring tone, too hard to use generally, I was going to take it back and ask for a refund.

But funny, I tried it again yesterday and it seems to make sense now. Found the ring tones, found the volume, found the alarm function, found the messaging. All OK now. Nice 8Mp camera. I think it’s a keeper. Funny, that.


Still working off the laptop. The main computer is dead as a dodo. New HDD, new install of Windows, another attempt to recover from backup. Tedious
