Of Coffee and total crashes

If you were having coffee with me, we would be having mango juice, because if life gives you mangoes…..

Actually, if life gives you fruit, any fruit, you must be very careful of what is in the coffee or mango juice you have been drinking; because life is not in the habit of walking around giving people fruit; if its any consolation though, life has not been throwing rocks at you

So life give you mangoes…….

Fridge full of mangoes

  • Peel and slice
peel and slice mangoes
  • Blend
  • Serve chilled

If you were having mango juice with me, I would ask you how old you were when you discovered, for yourself, that a computer hard-drive is nothing more than a shiny, disc…..

.….A super spinny disc turning round and round and every now and then it makes a ticking noise as it turns a little bit slower, turning round and round as your files disappear every now and then until it falls apart, what can I say its total crash of the hard drive

When your hard drive starts making the ticking sound of death, back up your data stat,

The blue screen of death
The Blue Screen Of Death

If you were having coffee with me, I would tell you that, according to a cabinet minister revelation, the Reserve Bank has paid for enough fuel supplies to to cover the next two years so the public should not panic

But given the track record of the state media and government, when they officially say one thing, one starts preparing for the opposite, dont panic they say…….

Meanwhile the president made a clarion for dialogue inviting the 20+ presidential candidates from the 2018 elections to discuss a framework for the way forward for the nation, but the two main contenders snubbed the meeting one citing that a photo opportunity is not dialogue and the word on the street is its like dip tank attendant inviting farmers who own no livestock ….

If the image in the Sunday Mail local paper can be believed then the austerity measures though bitter, are making country better……

sunday mail cartoon, yes a bit better but will make you better soon

If you were having coffee with me I would say hey, its the month of and Valentine’s in a few days, plans? no plans? why cant everyday be valentine or valentines’s for what, isnt that in honour of a beheading? you tell me

St Valentines beheaded

Have an awesome one and happy heart week ♥♥♥♥

Of Backing Up Data: You are not an elephant #2018BOTY

Day 13 of 25 days of blogposts celebrating The Best Of The Year 2018 #2018BOTY

2018 has been quite a year, it begun as all years do with me saying this as I say at the beginning of every year; “This is it! This my year” as I said the year before that and the year before that and the year before that……

Sometimes life is just like that tough loving teacher who teaches you lessons you need learning and is not particularly concerned with being nice or fun about it.

I like to think I have a good head above my shoulders and a decent brain between my ears with a fairly good memory to remember all the genius ideas I have.

Elephants have remarkable memory

If I have learnt anything, its that I am not elephant. I need to start writing down my thoughts more and backing up everything.

One of my lowest points of the year, coming back from my uncle’s funeral to find out that while I was away;  my laptop grew legs

The laptop thief keep your work backed up

Its so hard to say goodbye; to all the unbacked up drafts which only existed on my laptop, all the thousands and thousands of words and memories which I can never get back.

grief and loss

Keep your valuables backed up, and not just to a local backup hard drive but also sign up for a cloud backup service; in the event of disaster you can get back the important bits and it wont quite feel like the end of the world.

So remember; you are not an elephant; back up your work and Jesus saves
