    @leeCal I hope someone takes up your offer!

    @66Mustang Gulp - good luck.  BTW, have you seen the new limited edition twix?  They have salted caramel and winter spice flavour  :o

    I just got back from a drive on some of my favourite roads :) a nice thing to do on a Sunday. Now I’m enjoying an early craft beer before Sunday dinner.

    I hope you manage to get out for a drive leeCal.
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    @janer1967 thanks for the offer 🙂 I hope you can get out again soon.

    i managed to get out, not far but it was nice and autumnal, I even saw a rainbow 🌈 sunshine and showers and loads of fallen golden brown leaves, lovely. I used to like looking for chestnuts when I was younger, painful but I really like them. Didn’t see any today though. 

    Im glad you got out too @66Mustang, enjoy the beer 🍺 
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,293 Disability Gamechanger
    Great to hear you got out @leeCal. I was wondering if there’d be a rainbow given that the weather can’t make its mind up at the moment but didn’t see one myself!
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,293 Disability Gamechanger
    Today my parents’ car had its MOT. Quite a scary time of year as money isn’t exactly a thing that is in abundance in our house. Luckily it passed without any work needing doing which was a relief. :smiley:
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    I know what you mean @66Mustang we have the same annual problem, and it’s around December and January time unfortunately. 

    Well done anyway 🙂
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,293 Disability Gamechanger
    Ahhh that is a pain when you have Christmas to spend money on as well.
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes @66Mustang it is, but this year I bought four new tyres already and fixed my washers as you know, I don’t think there’s anything else wrong apr t from emissions which I can’t check but I think are ok, no smoke or fumes detectable to the eye anyway. So I’m hopeful about the car. 

    The tax tax and insurance all comes up straight after Christmas so that is a pain but I don’t go out much really so hiopefully all will be well financially. 
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,293 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes that is good. Hopefully it gets through the test with no issues. :)

    When I had a private car the tax, insurance and MOT were all due around about on my birthday so that was a nice birthday surprise  :s

    My parents are lucky in that their car is free to tax as the emissions are only 99g/km.

    Speaking of goals, a friend of mine has breakfast in a local cafe virtually every morning. The other morning when he went to pay he was told there was no charge as someone had paid for him!

    apparently a chap had come in off the street and told the owner’s that today he wanted to make someone happy and offered to pay someone’s bill, they quietly chose my friend. I just thought I’d share that because it’s rare that people experience things like that. 🙂

    @janer1967 my son still isn’t picking up so I still can’t say what the name off the restaurant was. I have more than one son and they all fail to pick up the same, I call it rude but they say “oh sorry, I’ve been so busy”  it takes a few seconds to text, very sad.

    i won’t forget to ask though even if it takes the rest of my life!
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 7,305 Disability Gamechanger
    @leeCal no problem I was just curious 

    Sorry your sons dont respond I agree only takes a second but they dont realise the impact it has on you 


  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    Thank you @chiarieds the beams look familiar but it was dark inside at night, I do remember old beams. The name doesn’t ring a bell though particularly. I wished I’d paid more attention now I really do. 

    It may may have been that one, I thought the word monk was in the name somewhere but I could be totally wrong. The reason I remember it at all is because my eldest paid for it which is really unusual ha ha, and the portions were all small as you see on tv, with gravy swipes and dotted pured carrot and such. If it wasn’t a Michelin star restaurant then it really should have been. 
    Thank you for your help though @chiarieds
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    My goal today is to get my eldest to return my call or even just answer his phone. What would happen if we had an emergency I don’t know. 

    Still trying @janer1967 but it could be a week or more if it’s anything like usual.

    My goal this morning was to go to my church for mass then help clean the silver and other items ready for the Bishop of Chichester's visit on Sunday.  Due to the rest of the family getting up late, the kids going to school comes first of course, by the time I was ready it was too late for the bus.

    @Tori_Scope it’s really important because frankly it often leads me to think that I’ve been a bad parent somehow and it causes me some grief literally. 

    When he does answer he will talk non non stop for an hour or two but then ignore me for a fortnight or a month. I’d rather just have a normal ten or twenty minute call but more often to be honest. 

    Oh yes, please keep in touch with home, it’s psychologically important for parents if not you yourself. 
  • roberttaylor570roberttaylor570 Member Posts: 568 Pioneering
    @leeCal It is St. Luke's Feast Day and as we are called St. Luke's this is our annual Patronal Festival.

    It will be very different to previous years due to the pandemic.

    We usually put on a bring and share lunch for the many attending.  This time, no lunch, no refreshments, no singing and socially distanced with masks whilst in church.
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 7,305 Disability Gamechanger
    @leeCal Good luck with that goal, it does make you worry though what would haen in the case of an emergency. I wonder if you called him from an unknown number if he would respond.. Have you tried with holding the number when you call  
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    Hey that’s an idea @janer1967 though he’s smart, he may ignore withheld numbers, plus he’d be annoyed that I tricked him, however it’s his fault after all.

    ill try that, what is the number you dial before ? 14 something?
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 7,305 Disability Gamechanger
    @leeCal It is 141 that you put in front , yes it may annoy him but just explain you are worried about how you could contact him in an emergency so was just trying different ways as he never usually answers your calls 

    I must admit I dont always answer unknown calls I think if they wanted me they would leave a voicemail
  • CressCress Member Posts: 452 Pioneering
    My son is the same...I never call him as he wouldnt answer...I sent a txt just over a week ago to ask how him, his wife and my granddaughter were and still not had a reply...it breaks your heart.
    I think if he did actually call me I'd think he must need a kidney or something...
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 7,305 Disability Gamechanger
    @Cress I am sorry to hear that it must be so heart breaking.

    I dont get to see my mum much buy I call her every week , but it doesnt work both ways my mum has only ever called me twice in the 12 years since my dad assed away, I just get on with it and make sure I maintain contact
  • CressCress Member Posts: 452 Pioneering
    This is it @janer1967 try to keep telling myself it's not a judgement on me...and be grateful when I do hear from him...
    I admire you for maintaining contact with your mum, when it seems so one sided...that cant be easy either..

    I can imagine that's hard @leecal @Cress. I'm not quite that bad, but it is sometimes easy to see a message and think 'I'll deal with that later' and then forget for a while. I'd definitely try not to think of it as a personal thing, but I can see that's how it'd come across.

    I'll endeavour to be better at replying! That's my new goal. We can ignore the fact I still haven't bought that clothes horse :D

    @janer1967 the restaurant was called Blackfriars and wasn’t a Michelin restaurant but has been given some prestigious awards. My son reckons it won’t be long before they are awarded a star. So, oops, but it felt looked and tasted for all the world like a Michelin start restaurant to me! It was a few years ago too. 

    (It is recommended by Michelin)

    Yes @janer1967 I must have caught him unawares!  Funny thing, straight after another son phoned and then my daughter! It’s been that sort of day since my sister called round this morning as well. Weird or what.

    its nice to catch up though.

    @leeCal - Glad you got the name of the restaurant. Blackfriars, rather than Monks.....you've been playing too many word association games on here! Newcastle is an amazing place, where I lived from nearly 5 until aged 22 years old.

    I like spreadsheets very much, so I might try to design one to analyse a string of numbers. That probably sounds far easier than it is because the numbers will be pseudo random. Why would I’d o such a thing I hear you ask, or was it an echo? The reason why is because pseudo random numbers turn up in the strangest places and I like those places.

    or I could just write a Christmas card list. I think the latter would be far easier but not much of a challenge. 
    Or I could read about Buddhism some more. Hmm, choices, choices. 🧐

    ill read first. 🙂

    Hi @Ross_Scope thanks for asking, I decided to read more about Buddhism, I’m reading a little at a time because it can be complicated. 

    A son has promised me an Apple MacBook which he doesn’t use anymore and that would be better to do spreadsheets on than my tablet. So I’ll wait for that to come.

    i did buy some Christmas cards today though, really nice ones, so good you could cut them out and hang them in a frame on the wall. 
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,430 Disability Gamechanger
    I have some audiobooks saved about Buddhism @leeCal, I'm glad you find it so interesting, it's wetting my appetite to start the books :) Thanks for the tip about reading a bit at a time, I'll keep that in mind.

    A Macbook sounds amazing, will it also make browsing the community easier for you? As well as the spreadsheets of course :D 

    And those cards seem lovely, would love to see a picture of them!

    Hi @Ross_Scope, the MacBook should make it easier to surf generally and of course on the community. I don’t know when it will arrive though, hopefully in the next couple of weeks or so. It’s mostly for spreadsheets though, I might keep it unconnected from the Internet entirely. I have an old blackberry which I don’t connect at all and I’m happy that all my data and info on that is safe. Not all apparatus needs to be connected to the internet in my opinion. 

    the cards are lovely but it seems wrong to show them online for a couple of reasons, so I’ll resist the temptation if you don’t mind. 
    They are by Ling and if you google them and look you can see images of quite a few of their cards, very pretty.
    Tis nippy today when the clouds come over, definitely autumn.
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,430 Disability Gamechanger

    @leeCal I have a MacBook and it’s really good for doing spreadsheets and just in general. I’m sure you will enjoy using it. Just so you know it’s almost impossible to get any malicious software on a Mac, unless you basically download it on purpose, so you should be able to connect to the internet without any security issues.

    Thank you @66Mustang, that’s reassuring 🙂

    I used a Vpn for about two days once but I stopped because I received a message from google asking me if I was bonaa fide in some way, I forget the exact message but it said a lot of traffic was coming from the isp I was using. I stopped using the vpn immediately.

    Was it a free or paid VPN?

    I actually pay for a VPN (one of the few things I am willing to spend money on as I think it’s worth it) and I find the service really good. I only tend to use it while using Wi-Fi away from home, though, like in a hotel. It may have changed since I did my research but when I was looking free ones were often dodgy in some way.
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    edited October 2020
    Yes it was a paid for vpn, I am a bit miffed actually but it came with a security package. so there’s still some value in what I paid for. 
    Using it away from home is a good idea.🧐
  • 66Mustang66Mustang Member Posts: 4,293 Disability Gamechanger
    Oh that’s strange! Yes I use it in hotels as if you don’t use one I believe there is a chance someone else on the network can see what you are typing in. 
  • leeCalleeCal Member Posts: 3,006 Disability Gamechanger
    I’ll pluck up courage and try it again someday, I thought it was strange too, gave me a shock actually. The message wasn’t in their usual font or style either but it said it was google. I came off immediately and stopped using the vpn just in case.

    @Ross_Scope it must be over a year now off and on. I have read several books by the Dali Lama but also some more introductory articles etc. There is a simplicity often hidden within complexity I have found, whether this is due to problems with translation or not I’m not sure, it may be also due to cultural differences as well though, different ways of saying things to what would be considered normal in the west. I’m sure you’ll experience what I mean quite soon after you begin studying. 

    For example, emptiness is a concept used to describe how all things including people lack inherent existence. Non Inherent existence is a concept to describe how things including people do not exist independently from all other things including other people. Therefore nothing is empty but all things are full of everything else. All of which may sound incredibly dense. I’m saying actually all things are dependent on something else for their existence, a seed grows but it needs water, sun, earth etc and each of those elements in turn need other elements, the list becomes immense until finally you realise that all things need each other, that means they don’t inherently exist in their own right, which means they are empty of inherent existence, ie emptiness, they are also full of everything else in a way too. In the West we wouldn’t call such a thing emptiness I don’t think. Perhaps this example gives you a little idea of how the simplicity is sometimes shrouded within complexity, much like many aspects of life. Maybe all.
  • Ross_ScopeRoss_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,430 Disability Gamechanger
    That's very interesting @leeCal, I think to a degree all cultures and parts of the world are guilty of making certain things sound more complicated than they actually are. That's the beauty of learning really, often new things can seem overwelming and confusing, but with time most of it sinks in.

    I will keep that in mind though, it definitely sounds like it can be a challenging belief to study. Maybe I'll tackle it on a day where I'm feeling clever :)

    I've been reading about Buddhism on & off for many years. Like @leeCal - I've read books about/by the Dalai Lama, & that's a good place to start; his humour also shines through.
    Just reading about the teachings, at least I found, you have to stop & think, which I feel is good, you can't just 'read' the books. So @Ross_Scope you might be pausing any audiobook about this quite often! :)

    I got a new table top fridge delivered today and set it up in my room.:smiley: it helps me to keep some drinks, snacks and milk etc. in there so I don’t have to go to the “communal” fridge downstairs.

    Well, I wanted to read more about Buddhist enlightenment and at one point I felt light headed so I reckon I achieved something...

    apart from that it’s been a damp day and I’ve daydreamed my way through it with the help of a warm hot water bottle and the occasional coffee and biscuit. 🙂

    Good work you two!  It's been a very cold, soggy afternoon here too. I'm currently sat with multiple layers on drinking peppermint tea!

    I had some oolong tea a while ago and it is quite calming, very nice taste too. I’ve had hem for ages but I think I remember the tea bags being expensive, Relatively speaking. .
  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,699 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes they are a bit expensive.  I tend to go for the supermarket own brand ones as they aren't too bad.  Peppermint tea helps my digestion and is refreshing too!

    My family used to like Red Bush Tea which is from Africa. We tried it because the main characters from The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency drink it!

    I started a course in mindfulness today. I have already been on such a course but this is an online course, like a refresher for me. I finished week one!

    @Tori_Scope

    I really liked it, such a nice innocent program. :) I believe someone to do with it sadly died so they will not be making any more but the books continue luckily. I have never read the books but some of my family love them, they are apparently really good.
  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Community Team Posts: 3,210 Disability Gamechanger
    I haven't read the books either @66Mustang. I'll have to bear them in mind next time I'm in the mood to do some reading... 

    That's sad, I didn't know that :( I was just wondering why they didn't make any more.
