A Promise is a Promise

On Sunday I promised… and not for the first time, to regale you about the delights of mocotó. Well, this time I have kept my promise, but not here. You’ll have to check out my post Chewsday, there I tell you all about it with a recipe.

boozeI couldn’t find a decent image on the net for mocotó bones, so I took my camera to the butchers when I went to get the makings for a BBQ tomorrow. But they only had prepackaged ones in plastic, so that’s what you got.

The day started out hot, sweating at the PC before 8am, but now at 3pm it’s clouding over and looks like we could get rain.

The day has been a fairly humdrum one, coffee, Nap-fu practice, a quick trip to town, and shock of all horrors, I did some of the dishes. Not all, don’t want to get rash about these things. The phone hasn’t even beeped yet, so I may still have class later.

Remember the senior vice president from Korean Airlines that went nuts over the nuts? Well, she resigned. I still think she should have been spanked, publicly.

Mars rover, Curiosity, has soled a Martian riddle about mountains… I didn’t know there was a riddle.

The CIA has lied… Is that news? I thought that was normal. The new report tells of brutal interrogation techniques.

Israeli air strikes on four high-rise buildings in the final days of this summer’s conflict in Gaza amounted to war crimes, Amnesty International says. But who’s got the guts to tackle them over it?

Do you remember Pugsley? He was Wednesday’s fat brother in Addams Family, well, he’s not with us any more.

Australia was the worst performing industrial country in terms of climate change in 2014.

I don’t even have a picture for today’s post. There, that’s fixed. Can’t have a post without a piccy, that’s boring.


I’m not stupid, but…

I’m not. Truly.

This I can do, but Linux is more difficult

But Linux has made a fool of me. I gave it a go, Nine months I have persevered with the vagaries of Linux, double clicks and all. Finally, yesterday I lost my sound. I spent the afternoon looking at how to restore my sound. Linux is just too complicated for an average Joe, even an intelligent one like me.

4pm yesterday

I fired up an old drive with Windows XP

I have thrown in the towel. I am, reluctantly, going back to Windows. Linux will never be serious competition until they make it user friendly and not a friggin’ jigsaw puzzle. It’s okay if you’re a Geek, but alas, a Geek I am not.

So, my blogging has been a bit thin on the ground yesterday and today, as I switch between one and the other HD. Later today, I need t find the driver for the sound card in my ‘new’ PC, the old HD never had the driver installed.

[Lunch Break]

Back. Well, that was nice; an inch thick pork loin chop,  with roast potatoes and gravy, accompanied by a chilled bottle of Eau de Tap.

I must away, and see if I can resolve the remaining problems, by applying my limited Geekery skills. At least when you install something, Windows does it.
