Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

I don't use the Skype that comes with Win 10 on my laptop. I downloaded the desktop version when I was on Win 8 and use that. Microsoft initially kept telling me I couldn't do that but it's worked fine since Win 8 was released so I just ignored them and since I upgraded it to Win 10 I haven't even seen any warnings about it. Alternatively you could download the new version of Skype or run the one you have in compatibility mode.

I'd be climbing the walls if I had to go without a drink for that long. I'd probably kill somebody. I really hate being thirsty. Do you have local elections there on the 4th Sandy?

The cable guys are blaming squirrels for all our internet troubles over the past year or so. It seems the little squirrelly whirlys were chewing through the cables and the guys had to actually go up the pole and replace everything. Sheesh! lol
Tomorrow morning bright and early I off on a road trip to the mountains. My friends are kidnapping me Smile I'm looking forward to the very beautiful scenery as we travel from Vancouver to Slocan BC. There is very little wifi around there (the towns people are against having a cell tower) but I'll pop in when I can. ♥️

Oh Elaine I so envy you your day out.  I haven't had a real outing now for over a year.  I hope you have a great time, although I am sure you will.

What I do when waiting for my ops is tell the consultant I am going to swirl and spit with water, they always say, that's fine.  The nurses go ape shite when they see me with water but I tell them the consultant has told me I can and then they leave me alone.  My mouth drieds up so badly if I don't do that, that I end up with my tongue sticking to the roof of my mouth and even unable to speak properly or to swallow.

No for the local elections.  As for skype.  I tried everywhich way but loose with that last night.  I even un-installed and re-installed this so called new version meant to be compatiable with the new update.  All to no avail.  Then I found a another programme that I kept getting pop up with telling me it couldn't work properly with this machine.

So what I have decided to do, is attempt to fire up and set my macbook back to factory settings to try and get life back into that.  If it lets me, I will then spend today doing the last 9 years of updates on that.  That will probably take all day.  In the meantime I can still get on the web with this one apart from using a couple of programmes.

Then tomorrow I will re-set this one back to factory settings, whether my macbook is working or not.

I think one can use skype directly on line without the app anyway, so for today I will log into that if I can and then pin that window just incase I want to use it.

Sounds like you've got your work cut out for the next couple of days. Try not to toss either of them out of the window. Swearing is allowed.

Sounds lovely Elaine. Have a great time.

I'm off grocery shopping soon and then I need to get some chores and errands done before my visitors get here. They were only here two weeks ago at Easter but the Bank Holiday will give them the extra day to get things done so I better not complain. After 4 days I'll be a basket case though. It would be easier if I had another bathroom but I'll survive I suppose. Back on Tuesday hopefully. Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi everyone.

After work today, I took my granddaughters to Chuck E Cheese
for a few hours.
Now they are sleeping like little angels.
A nice Spring breeze is coming in through the sliding glass door screen.
I have to get some things done around the apartment tomorrow
and do some laundry.

A trip to the mountains sounds lovely!
I wish someone would kidnap me and take me on a lovely trip.  :0)

Hope you have a nice visit with your visitors, Wendy.

Good luck figuring out the Skype issues, Sandy.

Have a great rest of your day, Everyone!

Have a great weekend everyone!
It was pretty warm yesterday in the 80s.
I had my mammogram. It's never fun and very stressful. But thank God the one I have left
is okay.
Of course after that I treated myself and my neighbor who drove me to a nice lunch.
Food does help me to feel good. Hee hee.
Today it's looking around for any flea markets and estate sales. Our big day out around here.
Be good you all!

Have a great time Elaine!!! safe trip and enjoy nature's beauty.

Wendy I hope you survive the weekend with your visitors lol and that they get a lot of work done.

Kerri what a lovely time you seem to be having with your grand kids Smile

Sally I hate mamograms and refuse them! Instead I opt for the safer and more reliable special breast ultrasound.

Sandy .... gheezzzzzz what a mess you're having with both the laptops!
I don't use the app on my laptop for Skype at all; only the desktop version and it works great and I have win10 professional with all updates etc.
Perhaps ones you've got win10 backed to factory settings; go into the programs and delete that skype app.

I came close to tossing the bloody thing out of the window I can tell you Wendy.

I would love a trip out too Kerri.  I'm hoping that after this next op coming up this week I will finally be able to go further than a few yards away from a loo before needed to pee.  And my life can finally get back to normal.

I've just been called in for a mammogram too Sally.  I bloody hate those things.  I have to go so far to have one done, and I find them so blasted painful.  I'm not sure we are allowed to actually ask for those over here Martha.  They have to be recommended by a doctor.

As you can see by the other post Martha, I think I might now have it all licked.

There is just Aimee and me here this weekend.  Sarah and Martyn have gone away until Sunday night and Jess does come and go but she is either catching up on sleep or she is out working or playing.

I dont' often get a one to one with Aimee nowadays so it's rather nice having just the two of us.

Same thing here with the breast ultrasound Sandy and my GP was more then happy to give me the referral for it as she herself hates the mammogram and she agreed with me that this ultrasound shows things a lot better too.

Oh that's right, it's a long weekend for you in the UK isn't it?

I watched The Voice tonight and sorted and folded some of the washing.

Nothing much going on today and the weather has no idea what it wants to do at the moment, but a nice loud long thunderstorm would be nice, maybe it'll give me that since it doesn't know it wants to do, rain or shine. lol

A lazy day for me.
Paper reading, Facebook watching and sleeping on and off.
