The Relationship Between My Computer And Me

The relationship between my computer and me is not always a good one. This is particularly the case when it comes to scanned photographs and postcards.. Before we moved to IDCB (Ida Culver …..) all was working seamlessly. But once I got set up and working here somehow the scanning process was not working as before. And when I scanned photos and postcards they were put somewhere in the computer where I could not find them.

Yesterday I think I accidentally stumbled upon the solution to half of this problem, i.e. I can find the scanned photos now on the computer……but I have yet to find the postcard again in my collection…..but that is a whole other matter.

Where have I put postcards that I have scanned? Yes I do have a certain place for those. and I hope I have this issue resolved now. So in answer to a question from G.P. Cox re the age of a postcard I posted a couple of days ago – the postcard of an Edward Hopper painting – “Tables For Ladies”.. I can’t put my finger on the specific pile of scanned postcards containing that card……but it’s not far away. I bought the card relatively recently from a dealer in California and I think the card was relatively new as compared to old – i.e. 1920’s or 1930’s. I’ll keep looking if only to satisfy my own curiosity. Thank you G.P. Cox for your question! . .

Le vieil homme et la bouffe

A cantankerous cat but much loved despite his idiosyncrasies.


We have worked out that we have enough Lily’s Kitchen Marvellously Mature to last us until late April. This means that we have around sevenish weeks to figure out how in the world we are going to change the food of a cat who doesn’t like food.

The good news about a late April change is that Louis Catorze’s allergy-prone period will be coming to an end, so we won’t have to endure a food change AND maximum pill dosage AND possible deployment of Le Cône all at the same time. (In fact, as from tomorrow we will be lowering his dose to just one pill a day, as his skin and eyes are looking much less sore now.)

However, at the end of April the little sod will turn 11. And according to, erm, some random charts that I found on the internet – see below for one from…
