Time 16:30 thermometer showing -11 just outside back door. Cars abandoned in Baillieston road after yesterday. The pavements are about 15 cm think with ice, crunching to walk on. Nothing of fresh produce in the co-op and many of the shelfs of other stuff very empty. Means no milk or bread deliveries at the moment this neck of Glasgow.
New update from snowy Glasgow. A new fall this morning at 09:30. I reckon that is now about 100 cm deep. Cancelled the carers today as they would have to park their cars in the middle of the road as last weeks snow fall has created large areas of ice at the sides. Had success on the technical front with FLIP PDF of our church magazine
Sign off and have a look at the outside world.
The outside world was very wet snow this afternoon. The last three pictures were taken around 2 p.m.. The street is like glass and the cars on Baillieston Road are burning out clutches, you could smell the burning at 62.
Cried off going to BBC reunion lunch today as the pavements here are very icy. Got call about 9:30 to inform me that carers would not be coming in so a good early call vindicating me not going into Glasgow. I suspect the carers will not be on Monday either as our street and especially the edges are impossible to get in and out of cars.
Tried to put paper waste out no joy with Blue Bin frozen shut. Cleared the car so try and make it to the shops for some provisions.
Just not to be out done David has sent through the pictures of
Milburn Crescent, West Lothian
Expected to see pictures that I uploaded, well I do when I preview the page a little worrying.
Another day and another day clearing the evening fall of snow. The mountains are getting bigger now and of course it will take longer to clear when it finally thaws.
Notice the icicles on the front windows not sure if this is a natural daily thaw or because I opened up the loft space to let some warm air circulate in to the upper roof space.
Re the MAC installed a drive from my PC and set up the backup system onto it, just awaiting a couple of memory modules to arrive to bring it up to 3 GB.
Snow now at least 30cm deep after another few cm’s last night. Now building own mountain of snow at the front and back. Dana ventured out this morning and would have been lost had she gone off the tracks of cleared snow. Back to the fire for Dana.
More snow in the night and more falling as I cleared the drive.
Car with new accessory of white roof top.
The sun came out whilst I was in the front the reflections look good.
The regular postman was on a day off. I spoke with the postie and he was telling me the van could not get down to fill his auxiliary box at the bottom of Carrick Drive and the one at the top by KwikFit was frozen. A Long day for the postie.
Giving this extension that I found for Open Office to be able to write a blog post rather than being in the WordPress site. It seems to allow word processing first and then you up load much like a FTP file.
Just finished the evening praise audio cd. We are having some issues with levels etc. Having to do more work than I would like in boosting audio levels in the edit.
Re MAC what else have I found.
Expose – having four windows open much like the Win7 side on applications, F9 shows all apps (6) open at the moment, F10brings up tow pages from same app. Such as two Open Office docs, F11 moves them to side to clear the desktop. (Great)
Well lets see how easy it is.
Need to go and mend the snow shovel
How easy was it. Very confused did all the direct things from MAC and Open Office and it indicated that I needed to check this and that. Checked the WordPress site to look for any dialog boxes needed to be filled, none I could see. AND then I looked and the ramble was there hence this edit.
Still not sure if I have the right bits for this blog. I did not find the setup very clear. I was after a free blog but I could not see how the posting was going to work after the content boxes disappered. So just pressed on.
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1343?viewlocale=en_US This is the site for the MAC keyboard locations and functions. I have a odt doc if you want it.
Suggest looking at Safari extensions and loading at least Expose this when you click the quad box next to the address bar show all the tabs available, hover over with mouse and it zooms that a little bit. I installed mouse gestures which mimics a pen but this did not work as it should. Yesterday I found that win 7 does not automatically see the MAC. Link http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7network/thread/a2a62c23-0aae-4b5a-a646-f089468bc6cc this did the trick, got used to all the editing being available when I had the pro version before installing full Home premium which shows up its limitations of edit etc. now can see MAC in Network on PC and can access the MAC Docs. Also had to set up SMB in the shared area.
