  1. Gonna and wanna are used by new speakers of English, they are heard so often. It’s not the queens English, but it is Donald Trumps, and probably every president in my lifetime. How about cockney, or Aussie?
  2. Good question, why is pounds abreviated lbs? From Wikipedia : The pound or pound-mass is a unit of mass used in the imperial, United States customaryand other systems of measurement. Various definitions have been used; the most common today is the international avoirdupois pound, which is legally defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms, and which is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces.[1] The international standard symbol for the avoirdupois pound is lb;[2] an alternative symbol is lbm[3] (for most pound definitions), # (chiefly in the U.S.), and ℔[4] or ″̶[5] (specifically for the apothecaries' pound). whats the weight measurements used in England?
  3. The part about my father is true. A happy Father’s Day to all fathers who sacrifice their health and well being for the love of their children. On a side note, I’m blessed to have become a part of my Filipina family in which now there is a little 5 year old imp running around causing all kinds of chaos and joy and my wife tells me she’s the child I never had. My lucky Filipino leap of faith.
  4. Philippines voltage is 220 I think. It may also differ by phase, single or 3 phase
  5. I’m thankful that I was at my fathers side during his “ after work” hours building cabinets in our basement to make an extra $buck to give us, his family. I still have so many tools that he collected over the years and I cherish the memories when I’m back in our workshop. I’ve even still got his 1952 henway.
  6. the Way to make a small fortune is to start with a big one
  7. I used to get the day old cakes , about $8 for a great big Black Forest chocolate or Carrot cake but that could not have been doing my waist line nor blood sugar any good. Now I keep a box cake mix which can be made in about 30 mins. Cheap, half the cals with no icing, and no need to leave the house.
  8. That will be a real improvement. No sound for sore ears.
  9. I love to eat so I’ve always liked cooking. Lately I’ve picked all the cooking for dinner since I’ve retired. My wife is easy. She’s content with broccoli , cauliflower , all vegetables. And she does not eat very much as she is small. Last night was salmon and asparagus, tonight is cauliflower in mayo/Dijon/cheese sauce with spinach sautéed in garlic for a chaser. I figure she’ll keep me around for a few more years.
  10. It’s been a topic here about using a VPN originating in USA to de-regionalize Netflix. Maybe that would work here too. Unfortunately, I guess you would have had to already installed the VPN in the USA which is now after the fact. Send your laptop back home and let someone do it for you. Until then you have the free anti viruses.
  11. I’ve used norton and Avast, now I just use windows defender.
  12. My wife has her own mind. When she doesn’t listen to my opinion, she has probably already factored in me being clueless as to the situation at hand.
  13. Take them out back and bury them.
  14. Could be they’re too ornery to mold. I experimented with habaneros once until they got the best of me. Never again.
