    Red face No not again

    Please, please do not annoy them into changing the bloody setup again--it took me the best part of 2 weeks to get back onto the forums-involved phone calls to your wonderfully organized time zoned country--whoever thought of putting Maryland 16 hrs behind New Zealand needs a good spanking with a hydrant bar, and then I had to revise my user name--and change of "E" mail address. Ever heard of "If it ain't broke-don't fix it"?

    Just goes to show how I enjoy your company tho.

    Well it can't be that bad if I found this! But then again it did take me over a month. But now I don't know where I am.

    After exploring the new set up, I like it!

    Has everyone been accounted for?

    Now how do I leave?

    For instructions in English.....press 1
    For instructions in Spanish....press 2
    For instructions in French ....press 3

    To remain hopelessly lost and giggling helplessly at futility of it all, turn left, make 3 complete circles, and sit down.

    Thank-you for you inquiry and have a nice day.

    Somehow I feel more confused. Oh, well ignorance is bliss; right?

    That may be, sky. but unfortunately here in Canuckland we have two official languages, so "push 1 for English" is quite common.

    Not quite sure how to explain why there are choices for Asian languages on the ATM's though

    Hey don't slag the blind, they are allowed to drive now. Why do you think they put the little bumps along the center lane?

    And they are better off than us. How many times have you come across a lost Blind person.

    Thanks for the perspective, Sheri...you'd think I've done enough overseas travel to have a diverse and open mind...but when it comes to the "home land" I forget Canada has 2 official languages. (But I remain firm....if someone lives in the US, dadgummit, they better learn to speak English! )

    How do I get to Zanadu?

    Unfortunately this is actually true, people can be legally blind and wear special glasses to drive. Only during the day. I don't think they came out with night vission for the blind yet.

    If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
