    How are you getting on with you fancy new phone?

    Make sure you don't roll on it when you're listening to music. I've done that a few times. Nearly broke the thing.
    Be careful, lest in casting out your demon you exorcise the best thing in you.

    Well Iíve gone from an iPhone 5s to an iPhone XR.. In my day (*waves walking stick*) five years between updating technology wasnít unusual. Apple have already released the iPhone 12 and god knows what since the XR! But the beauty of Apple products is the user-friendliness, so Iím getting on pretty well with it and havenít had any serious fits of anger. I even updated to the latest iOS the other day without any drama.

    Yeah, I still need to get a screen protector for it. Iíve fallen asleep and woken up lying on the phone.. Never done much damage at all to them or the iPad though. The worst story Iíve heard was from a guy who had his iPad in his kidís pram. He folded the pram up and *crunch*. Oh and LOL, one time Little Gypsy threw her phone across the room.. It was fine but it landed on her fatherís iPad and smashed the screen. She was in the biggest panic and said sheíd seen a huntsman spider and freaked out lol. Sheíd actually just had a fit of rage. Yes, us Gypsies have anger management problems heeeeee.

    The Humbling River — Puscifer


    https://youtu.be/GgwK9sHTu-8


    Nature, nurture heaven and home
    Sum of all, and by them, driven
    To conquer every mountain shown
    But I've never crossed the river

    Braved the forests, braved the stone
    Braved the icy winds and fire
    Braved and beat them on my own
    Yet I'm helpless by the river

    Angel, angel, what have I done?
    I've faced the quakes, the wind, the fire
    I've conquered country, crown, and throne
    Why can't I cross this river?

    Pay no mind to the battles you've won
    It'll take a lot more than rage and muscle
    Open your heart and hands, my son
    Or you'll never make it over the river

    It'll take a lot more than words and guns
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle
    The hands of the many must join as one
    And together we'll cross the river

    Nature, nurture heaven and home
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns
    Sum of all, and by them, driven
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle
    To conquer every mountain shown
    The hands of the many must join as one
    And together we'll cross the river

    Braved the forests, braved the stone
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns
    Braved the icy winds and fire
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle
    Braved and beat them on my own

    The hands of the many must join as one

    And together we'll cross the river
    And together we'll cross the river
    And together we'll cross the river

    Is it your main web browsing gadget now?

    I did a similar thing to lil gypsy years ago. A moth flew in my face while I was on my ipad. I instinctively reached out to bat it away, but as I did, the ipad slipped out of my hand and flew across the room. The screen smashed, but I still managed to use it for about a year more.

    It sure is. Though I still use the old phone when I'm super lazy - mainly when I wake up and haven't even emerged from under the covers haha, because it's easy to use with one hand.

    [email protected] My grandma had a phobia of moths. She lived in the UK all her life. I don't think I showed you guys the visitor I had on my balcony recently (that upright post is 9cm wide).

    In other news, I bought a new CD for my car. I still use CDs in there when I'm in a hurry and/or can't be bothered plugging my phone into the aux cable. CDs are also more reliable than USB sticks I've found. Check it out..




    I don't know why it's sideways. Anyway this CD has one of the greatest songs of all-time on it. I remember dancing to this when I was about 5yo. I googled the lyrics earlier (German/Jamaican/Africans singing about Russians).

    Thanks to comments on YouTube: German disco band formed by black people born in the Caribbean, singing about a Russian priest in a song inspired by a Turkish folk song.

    The clip is even greater!!

    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

    There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
    He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
    Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
    But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear

    He could preach the Bible like a preacher
    Full of ecstasy and fire
    But he also was the kind of teacher
    Women would desire

    Ra ra Rasputin
    Lover of the Russian queen
    There was a cat that really was gone
    Ra ra Rasputin
    Russia's greatest love machine
    It was a shame how he carried on

    He ruled the Russian land and never mind the Czar
    But the kazachok he danced really wunderbar
    In all affairs of state he was the man to please
    But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze

    For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
    Though she'd heard the things he'd done
    She believed he was a holy healer
    Who would heal her son

    Ra ra Rasputin
    Lover of the Russian queen
    There was a cat that really was gone
    Ra ra Rasputin
    Russia's greatest love machine
    It was a shame how he carried on

    But when his drinking and lusting
    And his hunger for power
    Became known to more and more people
    The demands to do something
    About this outrageous man
    Became louder and louder

    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

    "This man's just got to go", declared his enemies
    But the ladies begged, "don't you try to do it, please"
    No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
    Though he was a brute, they just fell into his arms

    Then one night some men of higher standing
    Set a trap, they're not to blame
    "Come to visit us", they kept demanding
    And he really came

    Ra ra Rasputin
    Lover of the Russian queen
    They put some poison into his wine
    Ra ra Rasputin
    Russia's greatest love machine
    He drank it all and said, "I feel fine"

    Ra ra Rasputin
    Lover of the Russian queen
    They didn't quit, they wanted his head
    Ra ra Rasputin
    Russia's greatest love machine
    And so they shot him 'til he was dead

    Oh, those Russians

    As the immortal Greta would say...

    Be careful, lest in casting out your demon you exorcise the best thing in you.

    Hahahaha!! I was very Greta #2 because it was April and the weather had been cooling down for a while. Those bastards are usually hibernating by then. I've had a smaller one in my house since then *and* some small-but-deadly-looking thing in my car. It's obviously climate change :P
