lucky you - we have to log on to everything. There's so many passwords to remember that everyone has them written down, or saved somewhere so defeats the purpose.

Those who haven't written them down end up getting a reset on one system or another so often, they have a function that allows you to request new passwords for most systems.

Anyway, what made me smile today was getting a call out = £50 + 4 hours pay. Walked to work (10 mins stroll), fixed problem in half hour and walked home again - result

We used to have a server to log on to now but we downsized the office and got new computers and we're on basically a home wireless setup now. I have put a lock password on mine but that's about it.

Had a fantastic night out at the Harry Potter studio tour in Watford. Rode in the flying car, walked down Diagon Alley, held Tom Riddles diary and drank a butter beer. I'm not sure if me of my daughter enjoyed it more, but great memories. On the serious side, the artwork, props and sculptures they have on display is amazing, my inlaws who aren't big fans also thoroughly enjoyed it.

A BBC headline:

"French minister jostled."

Slow news day I suppose.

The husband is watching those stupid US 'real life' murder shows. The voice over woman just said 'he turned up murdered'. Clever bugger.

The food has been rather good

Going to Bletchley Park today so the little one can get the English history, rather than the Hollywood version

Now you are making me jealous.

My favourite eating place is The Rising Sun in Tarporley. Unlike most pubs...they make all the food...as opposed to microwaving bought in meals. Very reasonable too. My favourite is Peppered Pork...with lots of lovely fresh English veggies...helped down with several large glasses of vino.
