My Mother had Fish knives and forks and we had the dainty cake ones.

We just had to replace our fridge and stove in the instructions for both it has a paragraph for the "Sabbath Mode" for turning off lights and dispensers. Never seen that before.

Hi Avril,
No I wont give up, I will get the hang of this in a couple of days and then I will be thinking why did I think it was complicated :thumbsup:
enjoy your new fridge and stove, me Mums fridge is a little over 30 years old and its still going strong, its one of those fridge and freezer tower stack combination,

Well nobody has said they liked my clip of the voice recognition elevator, I thought it was so funny, I almost peed my pants :D

Lovely supportive thread!

That youtube link had me crying with laughter!:lol:

(And it is so typical of a system that drives you to anger then becomes uncooperative because you are angry!!)

EDIT: new post: J123,-I was writing this when you posted!

Yes indeed, very funny....i sometimes had trouble with voice recognition--on some telephone systems for example-- when in the US as my accent was still too English for the technology to understand it!

Yes, it was very funny. Just love that we can still poke fun at ourselves. Being a Scot, I learned very quickly to slow down my speech in Canada, otherwise people couldn't understand some of the words I was using. I never did master "thirty" (too many r's, for a Scot) instead, I had to say "three zero":)

I always play this to my US friends who plan to visit me. It's one of the funniest sketches I have seen for a long time. We usually have to play it back so I can translate one or two of the lines for them.

:hysterical::hysterical::hysterical: I'm afraid I can identify with those poor fellows only too well Rodney, being a Geordie I found voice recognition gizmos to be a lost cause years ago :lol:

Yes old sparkles I clicked on your link and the video clip comes up right away and plays perfectly,
But I know Im doing something wrong and its very frustrating that I cant figure out how to do it myself correctly.

If you hit the quote button on my post you can see how I got it to work - only the text for the link is changed - not the link itself

I've taken the brackets off the ends so you can see it

Are you possibly copying the URL from a Google search result? I know when I search for something in Google and copy the shortcut, it doesn't work - maybe you need to actually go to the video (click on the Youtube result link) and copy the URL from the Address Bar (highlight, right click, copy).

Keep trying!

Yes that's what Im doing, OK first in this thread I click on new reply, then what confuses me is up the top of window theres four little things to choose from, insert link, insert image, another insert link, then above that there is attachments, so before I even begin Im confused at which one of these I click on to get started,

Rodney, to keep things simple, I would ignore those 4 options for now, and let's just concentrate on getting the copy & paste working for you.

As Dunroving has suggested, get the clip running and then copy the address from the top. Then just paste that into the main text area of where you are writing the reply.

Have a go at that, and let's see the result :)
