Widows 10, Big mistake?
I 'upgraded' to Windows 10 from Windows 7 some weeks ago, and since then I have had some doubts about my decision. it's also too late to turn back the clock now

I have lost the capability of using a second screen which I have found to be a nightmare. I have a good friend who was into IT and all that stuff, it was...

Here are the first of what looks to be quite a lot of home grown tomatoes.

I have never been much of a gardener so I am pleased when My good lady came home with two plants she had won. well, more seedlings than anything. All I knew was that they were peppers.

Fell into a time warp and ended up in a bike shop
I only paid a tenner for my bike, but I get it serviced every year at great expense (usually about 40). This year I took it to a bike shop that looked like it had been beamed in from 1954, run by an old bloke called John.

I only paid a tenner for my bike, but I get it serviced every year at great expense (usually about 40). This year I took it to a bike shop that looked like it had been beamed in from 1954, run by an old bloke called John.

"I'd like a service please - just tightening the cables, adjusting the gears, changing brake blocks if necessary."

"OK" said John, "bring it in on Monday".

"How much?" said I...

"Between six and twelve pounds depending on what needs doing".

So I took my bike in, and got him to fit a bracket for my lock too. He did a grand job - beautifully serviced bike. He was worried that one of my wheels was a bit out of kilter, and had taken it off four times to try to adjust it (the shops that charged forty or fifty quid never bothered).

"How much?"

"Six pounds", he said.

"Hang on, that can't be right, what about the bracket you put on too?"

"Oh yes, I forgot about that. Call it eight pounds".

So I quibbled about the price as I felt I'd been grossly undercharged, and gave him a tenner. Bike runs like a dream. I did point out most places charge significantly more and he said "I know, what a rip-off, but I suppose they have staff to pay".

The pic' shows three chillies, and behind there is a bell pepper, just losing flower and a small ball showing, not that you can see it.

I often make a chilli but with 'Birdseye' chillies, I do not know what these are, they look a bit too big for a Birdseye.
As for the Bell pepper(s) any idea what to do with them?

The Russians have been banned completely from the Paralympics but were mostly allowed to take part in the Olympics. WTF?
