Has anyone thought how a little twirly thing ( circle/wagon wheel etc) rule's their life,you go on the a web page etc then try and get an instant reply,NO the little fecker just go'es ROUND & ROUND , for hours and hours ( well it seems ) I know it's the speed of the processor ( more gobbleydegook ) but it's driving me mad ( okay I know patience ) BUT all the same (as my kids used to say ) I want I want it now!!!!!!!

So, Bob, I am kind of guessing a teeny bit of impatience is part of your character? I say that only because this post about twirly things annoying you, notwithstanding, the reply/post button on this site must have a similar effect ergo the 3 posts on t'same subject!! I confess I have posted a duplicate in the past, the trick is to click on the post/reply bit and then wait, it just takes a wee while.

I just decided to ignore the twirly thing, it could have been the "Destruct" button for all I knew....Safety first, and secret escape route are my motto!! Worked wonders in Recce Troop every time..... That US space ship trip over 10 billion miles is unbelieveable, and the scientists say once it has finished its scan of the planet, it will continue touring the Universe for all time..... Can we do that trip again for ISIS and co??

Okay...Okay...thank Freddy for deleting my impatience ......yes I would like all you guys living in the land of ''Fiber Broadband'' have instant ( well nearly) response when I press enter...when at my kids either UK or Germany using the internet is a dawdle .....here in rural Ireland I have to have satalite comms ( 40 euro a month) and if the weather is iffy we have shitty reception ....so as I stated twirly wirly ........( should be a choc bar ) BUT if that's all I've got to complain about NO here's one from this mornings Facebook ( wife has an account ) the Jocks are complaining about this Brand New Hospital being opened in Scotland...they listed hundreds of Scots who have done something great in the field of medicine ( join the club of Great Brits) who have not got anything named after them,let alone a hospital ...okay the being complained about...''Queen Elizabeth 2 '' ........say no more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did I tell you that me and computers .....well to-day took delivery of a new i Pad.......spent most the afternoon swearing at it....got to have a new e-mail address ,new Google account and don't talk to about Apple, fecking Yanks. So i've e-mailed my favorite computer geek ( sorry Freddy ) he's given the low down how to get on here BUT ( yes but ) I've got my laptop coded for this page/site....so I did not need ( sorry Freddy ) to record my pass word .....thank god you don't need a pass word to have a crap as I'd be exploding  ....so you going to ask why get a new i pad ....when we go to India an ipad is easier to carry than a lap top ...and Amazon had a special on its a 4 under £300 ,over here 500 euro. Now once Freddy helps me again I will access this fab site with my new email/i pad....( okay I'll stop creeping ) Bye

Bob, Come on my great friend, you have never crept, you just improve our enjoyment by adding little bits of enlightening crap from time to time, for which we are eternally grateful!! Keep it up mate, where would we be without you?? (All written with tongue in cheek!!) For those who know us not, we really are great mates, honest!!
