|shenley||:||Thanks for the update, Larry. Just spoke to Norm and he sounded in good spirits. He said life in the retirement village was very good. Like you said, he misses all the great RBR days (we all do). I've now got the phone number to his room so it will be easier for me to ring him in the future. He said he had to go because Bingo was on in a few minutes.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm said he is having a lot of problems with his sight, miss all of the old crew RBR was really something grand when it was rocking|
|shenley||:||Thanks, Larry. I was wondering how Norm was getting on in the aged-care facility. I will give him a phone call soon. He said it might be difficult getting through to him now. Not surprised he has retired from RBR scenarios. Pleased he is still OK. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Heard from Norm, no more RBR... I am still pondering paying (again) for the latest Trainz and writing Activities using the terrible rule based sessions|
|shenley||:||Nice to hear your updates, Larry. Hope the move hasn't been too much of a problem. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Bought a Ryobi lawn mower (battery 18v) to do our tiny lawn, and a transfer pump to use the bath water on the garden|
|Jenolan||:||After more than a month of missing the farm, the worst thing drinking water, miss our clean fresh rain water tanks every day. And the morning kookaburras, maggies, even the wombat|
|Jenolan||:||Weather for West Bathurst (our Endolin) is now active|
|Jenolan||:||We have named our new house Endolin ... see if you can work out the reference. Disney movie, computer based, debug mode on.|
There is a new scam method being followed, quite often now when you do something like insurance, energy plan, etc on the telephone they waffle out a bunch of conditions and want you to respond "Yes" if you have done one of these lately you probably know what I am talking about. Anyway, the scam, someone rings you up, when you answer they are "Can you hear me?" the normal response, if you can, would be to say "Yes?!" what then has happened is that they have recorded you agreeing and they use this as proof that you have committed to a purchase, change energy/phone providors, change a plan or whatever.
So now we have to be careful saying "Yes" on the phone to avoid being the target of fraud (sigh). If someone rings you that you do not know avoid say 'Yes" or any other agreement word as you could then be hassled trying to undo whatever they were trying to trap you with.
