Life, photos but not the universe

Snigger. Yawn.

You know a few days ago I posted about ‘not starting any computer stuff which will only take a few minutes if you only have a few minutes because……’

Well last night Eldest pointed out that if we kept all Barney’s ipod tunes on the computer as well as on the ipod, when the ipod dies (for whatever reason like maybe Barney dropping it off a roof) we’ll still have them all available to put on  a new ipod.

Then he said of course you can’t really take the tunes from the ipod and put them on the computer because it’s not designed to do that.

Then he said  well actually you can if you download a programme do do it.

Then he said it’ll only take a few minutes actually.


After a bit, Lovely Northern Lass went to bed as they had to be up early the next morning (Barney was long gone).




Some hours later (very later) Eldest showed me how to put photos on the ipod and adjusted a lot of settings to make it all automatic and introduced me to Chrome* (which I quite like) and we both went off to bed feeling very very tired and quite pleased with the results though by that time I was getting very hazy about what we had actually done.**

So now I’m putting some photos on the ipod (it’ll only take a few minute, honest) and using Chrome to do this post and occasionally checking the ipod which seems to be doing its thing quite peacefully – and Oh look!  It’s finished and turned itself off!

I’d never thought before, but when Barney’s uploading stuff, there’s no reason I can’t use the internet on his bit of computer.  After all it’s the same browser.

Yawn! (again)  And some bits of Arabian Nights fantasy.  Was it real?  I’m not sure now : )DSC_3290-1Our bedroom in the Alsisar Mahal.  Mmm 🙂

DSC_3324-1And the swimming pool.  (I could do with one now!)

DSC_3333-1View from the bedroom door.

DSC_3398-1And the loo window 🙂

DSC_3414-1Somewhere to rest on the way down to breakfast.

Well I think I shall go to bed now.  It seems to be quite late.

Sleep well all : )

*Google’s nice new web browser.

**And lets be fair, I hadn’t done any of it, Eldest did it all.

  3. These are beautiful photos! That pool looks quite good to me too. I’ve been battling mine for weeks trying to get it crystal clear.. without a lot of success.
    I’ve moved my blog to http://www.bettyjf1.typepad.com/ Too many problems with Blogger and now it’s not updating at all.
