I Didn't Believe These Laws At First, But Have Found Them To Be True From Actual Ex...

02 March 2015 - 02:47 AM

> 1.Law of Mechanical Repair -After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.
> 2.Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.
> 3. Law of Probability- The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
> 4.Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.
> 4.Supermarket Law - As soon as you get in the smallest line, the cashier will have to call for help.
> 6.Variation Law -If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.  
> 7.Law of the Bath - When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone rings.
> 8. Law of Close Encounters - The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.
> 9. Law of the Result - When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.
> 10. Law of Biomechanics -The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
> 11.. Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena - At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.
> 12. The Coffee Law - As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.
> 13. Murphy's Law of Lockers- If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.
> 14. Law of Physical Surfaces- The chances of an open-faced jam sandwich landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.
> 15.Law of Logical Argument-Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
> 16. Brown's Law of Physical Appearance - If the clothes fit, they're ugly.
> 17.Oliver's Law of Public Speaking- A closed mouth gathers no feet.
> 18.Wilson's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy -As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.
> 19. Doctors' Law- If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better... But don't make an appointment, and you'll stay sick. This has been proven over and over with taking children to the pediatrician.


Load Shedding

16 February 2015 - 05:29 AM

From the internet.



We had load shedding this morning.  

 So my PC, laptop, TV, ROKU, DVD,IPod, iPad and my new surround-sound system were all out of action.

 Then I discovered that my phone battery was flat - and to top it off, it was pouring with rain,

 so I couldn't do any gardening. 

 I went to the kitchen to make myself a cup of coffee and then I remembered that this also needs electricity.

 So I sat and talked with my husband for a few hours.    He seems like a nice person.



We have load shedding 1-3 times a day for 2 1/2 hours at a time. I see to it that my Ipad is fully charged otherwise I might have to talk to Henry.

I came across this site via Facebook today. It's really great. You type a word in and say load fonts. It will load all the fonts on you PC so that you can see what the word looks like in all the font types. Great for scrapbooking titles.

Pse 13 Again....

I have just spent hours loading my styles and Actions. What a slow job. When I restarted my PC this morning my styles where still there but the actions all gone. I've got hundreds. Sooo frustrating. It's taking me sooo long to set up my program that I'm not getting any scrapping time.

My questions is: Can I load more than one action at a time. When I go 'Load action' the file comes up where they are saved and I can only select one at a time. Ctrl select does not work to select more than one and neither does Ctrl A to select them all. Any advice. Meanwhile I will be sitting here plodding away. I wonder why they never 'took?'
