A very dead computer screen. Turns out it was just the screen that had died. It has been replaced by the huge ass old screen from the former computer in the attic. (please notice the official Cubs baseball - sent in by my son Ian)
The computer screen is lying in state on the sofa in the back sitting room. It will be there all afternoon if people want to come by and pay their last respects to a handsome computer screen that has passed away much too soon.
When I got up this morning, first thing I do is let Polly out for a pee. Then I go into the bathroom to do the same myself. This is what I noticed upon turning on the light. I'm glad I didn't go stumbling in without turning on the lights as I sometimes do.
I transferred this little frog outside where things will be a bit better for him. How did it get in the bathroom?
While straightening up the kitchen and moving a dishtowel. THIS came falling out of the dish towel. This huge orange and black beetle! It is inside a teaspoon so that you can get the right sense of scale. It wasn't moving much so I didn't feel the need to be startled, just rather surprised. I've never seen this bug before. Does anybody know what it is?
Sorry the frog and beetle photos are a bit blurry. My bifocals aren't' ready yet. I'm getting the varifocal style without the tell tale "lines" in them.
Dishwasher and computer are both running again. Thanks Paddy!!
