Those bloody tv cables

Is that a catchy post title or not? Not that it is very disturbing, but I hate those things!I'll try to explain! Probably you will get a big, understanding smile on your faces, reading this! LOL
Somewhere in the late afternoon yesterday, we were zapping around a bit on tv and suddenly the sound disappeared. No big deal, you think. I thought so too, it happens now and then. But it stayed that way, so Jan, all energetic started to remove all the connection cables from the digital modem, tv, dvd, video and tried some other ways of connection. Here comes the stressing thing! For me, at least!!! It was almost dinner time at that point, all stading in the oven and so, and Jan had trouble in finding the right way of connecting it all. That CAN happen, but it's nothing for me, I don''t understand a THING about it(if I dedicated myself to it, I could do it, but I don't want to know, LOL) and then it's becoming more and more stressing to me, waiting with dinner( my stomach protesting already) and this stuff taking more and more time. Poor Jan, he didn't understand it, but after some time I had the brilliand idea that it may not be in the connections(because it worked all well and suddenly not) but perhaps in the modem of the digital tv( the analogue worked well) and perhaps we could try to disconnect the modem from the electricity for a moment and reset it again. Sometimes that is a solution, because somewhere in the "distribution"central they were working on it or so. Well, Jan tried this at the end and voila, all was normal again, we had sound, as we should, also image and so and this took over an hour or more to find out! And now this was a simple solution! But......... Jan is still right about his remark, to connect tv, dvd, video and modem the right way and also being able to taking programs on dvd and / or video it's always said....oh that's so easy, a child can do it, it takes you only a few minutes to get it working........ well, FORGET IT. at least for us.
So when Jan wants to change anything in it for some uncomprehensible reason, I surely hope he will do it when I am NOT at home, because on me it has a very bad effect! I am getting all nervous and because of that I am getting grumpy and because of that we say less nice things to eachother. Humans can be very funny and strange in behaviour when things aren;t going too smooth. ROFL, ROFL!!
Well, at the end we finally could have dinner, an hour later, so my appetite was vanished already a bit. Oh, when all did work again and we were eating, we could laugh about it again, so no harm was done. Hahahaha.

Weather here is changing a bit, there are more clouds and sometimes it rains a bit. But temperature still is nice, so I suppose it's a good thing for all things nature. I still can open the garen doors at about 8 in the morning and it is feeling good. I didn't finish much at the computer yesterday, although I named and uploaded the files already for the new daily download of September, and I can assure you, that is a real beautiful one! Not giving you a sneak peek yet, but you'll agree with me in September.

And now the freebie. It's named "Henrietta", don;t know why, this just came into my mind. I tried to make it in a little bit different colour scheme and I think the colours work well. I also have to look up the printed pages about my family story, so that I can start with it again on this blog. Perhaps already this week, otherwise surely next week. I will do it all in small parts, it will keep you busy for some time, LOL.
Enjoy your day and off I am!
