I am waiting for the video on doors with knobs instead of handles.
I just hope that they will quit sitting on the threshold and either embrace or remove the Control Panel.

Even Swingin' Dors. You know how MS works. Wake up tomorrow morning and find that your bedroom door is on the other side of the room(1); but the toaster still burns the breakfast toast.

(1)In the southern hemisphere of course, the toast is on the other side of the bedroom and the door is burned. But that may be because they didn't get a handle on the translation from Finnish.

I don't recall my mother ever explaining that to me either.
I removed a lot of the doors in my house, (a few of the walls as well), makes life less complicated.

We actually need a :megagroan: smilie, for those instances where a mere :groan: is insufficient.

By the way, is your house sneakily moving around Bonavista?

Yes, but at a glacial pace. (Actually, according to Plate tectonics - at the pace of growth of my fingernails)
Where am I today (on a map)?

Wasn't it Einstein who said that when I walk to Swyers, I can be considered stationary and the house is moving.
Although, since Swyers sells food and not stationery, i could be wrong.

She is right here - reading through the replies and now I'm thinking a :coffeetime: would be very good! Wonder what caused that thought to occur to me?

I think Happy Birthday applies to many of the loungers - It was a momentous day!

Why don't we ask the other loungers?
Put your hand up if you think that January 24th 2010 was a momentous day.
(soto voce)

Code: Select all

 Sub Jan24()
    Dim lng As Long
    For lng = 1 To 2295
        MsgBox lng
    Next lng
End Sub
:yep:
(normal voice)
OK. You can put your hands down now.
