As I was writing on the computer yesterday afternoon I heard a constant noise. I thought someone might be gardening somewhere. Mr. Swiss said we were being visited by a helicopter. They were collecting new trees and transporting them to the railway track borders to be planted there. Luckily he was ready with his mobile phone camera and took a few photos. He said it was quite a spectacle and many neighbours were watching from their balconies. I thought the noise was from traffic on the main road and so I missed the opportunity for a few closeup photos, but Mr. Swiss took a few good ones.
I also managed a plane photo this week, but it was one of the big ones taking off from either Zürich or Geneva Airport.
Yesterday was a dismal day, so I did not really go anywhere or do anything. Today is a little better, so if the weather co-operates I might be out this afternoon, although Mr. Swiss said it is still putting on glove weather.
I was a bit mystified by my computer yesterday, although it was my own fault really. I have a paid-for anti virus protection, Avira. It has served me for a few years, does not cost the earth and am happy with it. Yesterday I got a message and thought it was Avira, but I got it confused with Avast who were out for customers with their free system. Somehow I did a click in the wrong place and also had a free version of Avast on my system which promptly made Avira inactive. I had Avast once, but do not like it as it can complicate the computer and am happy with my Avira. This morning I examined the problem, and got rid of Avast which was disturbing everything. It was not difficult to eliminate Avast, although I found them a little aggressive when I was doing it. Did I realise I had no further protection and gave me about 10 boxes to cross with reasons why. I ignored it all an am now back to my normal little umbrella with the red background symbolising Avira. My golden oldie brain really did get confused.
I also realised a couple of days ago that all my WordPress entries were linked to my Facebook which is definitely not my attention. I linked them to my special Angloswiss community, but not for every weed and flower that happened to grow in Facebook. On my community Facebook page I can control better what appears there and what not. Facebook is always a risk as you never know who reads what, but at least having a community keeps it a bit more private. I just checked in at Facebook and saw that I can now organise a legacy account, meaning when my time has come, I can appoint someone to continue my account (any volunteers?), or can organise its deletion. Facebook are really making sure that their site will exist forever.
And now I will depart (just until the afternoon). Mr. Swiss is on a shopping safari. I sent him a photo of the prawns I need. They have various sorts and I prefer the organic ones. They cost a little more, but am more certain that they spent their short lives not swimming in sewage, but in a cleaner environment. Seafood is not indigenous to Switzerland so it has to be imported.
In the meanwhile I am pottering around at home hoping my broken leg does not leave my body. Keep safe everyone.
