So after buying my copy of leapard, tonight I got around to upgrading from 10.4 to 10.5 on the laptop.

After a blue screen hitch, that was fixed by a quick google, and consult with Mr Hardy, all was sorted.

Must say I am pretty impressed with the new OS by Mac. I’ve just sat and watch Pirates of the Caribbean, and still have 2:14 left on the battery, considerably more than I was getting before. w00t.

Will have to wait and see how much I get on with it, at the moment, the only bug bear is that I can’t use InsomniaX that kept my MacBook from going to sleep when I shut the lid. Hopefully they’ll sort that out soon enough.


Where to start?

Well, thought I’d start up a blog of my very own… but am now compelled as to what to put on it?

So thought I’d dedicate to my wee Nan, who turned 94 this October… Bless her. Not so good with the walking these days, but still manages to get about (with a little help).

My Mum (Carol), Brother (Paul), Brothers Girlfriend (Sally), Aunt (Jean), and Aunt’s fella (Ian), and I, took Nan out for a meal Saturday before last. Bit of a change from the food in the residential home we thought… and still Nan has the ability to crack me up. We got all the way through the meal, without a hitch, then it’s time for desert. Nan was adamount she wanted Apple with Ice-cream. Which the restaurant didn’t do, but the lovely waitress said she could wipp up a fruit cocktail, with muchous apple, and some ice-cream.

Half way though eating our deserts we noticed Nan was spitting the apples back out at her plate (she can barely see so wasn’t sure what she was eating with each scoop). When we asked what she was up to, she told us how she didn’t want any applies.. haha had to laugh.

Just hope I get that old, so can wind up the grandkids 😛
