Good Morning

Clouds 16.04 (2)

It is Tuesday and my cleaning lady is here, so I am later with my good morning wishes. As it is still morning, they are still valid. Yesterday my only adventure was to the supermarket in the morning. As we were on the I took this photo as we were leaving the estate where we live. On the way in the car I saw some very interesting cloud formations. The weather was on the warmer side, although it looked a little stormy now and again.

Clouds 16.04 (5)
As we aproached out town of Solothurn, the clouds were still with us and made a good background to our cathedral. On the right there is a sign showing our three underground parking houses showing the free places. We drove on further, as our supermarket is in the nearbye village of Langendorf.

I had a little drama yesterday evening when I switched on my Microsoft computer. I had been working on my Macbook which worked OK. Somehow during the changeover time we lost contact with headquarters where the WiFi signals come from. I had absolutely no Internet connection and after exploring the situation my computer tells me that I should make a new configuration of the system. Mr. Swiss and Mrs. Angloswiss are not Mr. and Mrs. Bill Gates, so I left the problem to Mr. Swiss. He succeeded in putting a large aircraft symbol on my computer, to prove that there was no connection available.

We have a man that deals with our comuter problems, and so he was called. He said he would call past and take my computer to examine it as he did not have so much to do this week and it would be no problem.  In the meanwhile I fired up my Apple computer again and discovered that had also lost the connection.  I moved my Microsoft computer to another room and Mr. Swiss had another look.  Suddenly my computer decided he wanted to stay with me and found the connection again. We returned it to its original place, and it was still working. The Macbook was also online again. We called the computer maestro and told him everything was OK. This morning when I switched on with quivering hands, it was alive, so I am hoping this was a one off. It was the system that had problems, not the computer. A world had almost broken down for me.

Horse Chestnut Tree

My horse chestnut is developing and will soon become a real tree again, I hope. Although we were supposed to have some rain, it has not yet happened. I am making the most of the weather and today will probably be on my way again. I might attempt an excursion into town with my chair, I have not gone that far yet.

Front Garden

My front garden is now looking more like a garden, and slowly but surely my ornaments are taken their place again.

And so I will now leave you. Today is again asparagus, a risotto, and this time with the green asparagus. Mr. Swiss is in town at the moment, leaving me with my cleaning lady. Have a good day everyone, and make the most of it.

  1. Yes, we get internet dropout fairly regularly. Sometimes it is because of the weather, other times because of the service provider, and in the not too distant past it was also due to cable theft.
    It has gotten better but the service provider – Telkom – still ‘squeezes’ users when usage becomes high the internet becomes painfully slow to the point of dropping out altogether at times.
    They are busy setting up for fiber optics, which will be far more reliable, much faster and … more expensive, naturally!

    • Our computer man fitted us up with our system which usually works well, but I think somewhere a connection got lost. If our local provider would fail, we would have got a message. We have quite a fast internet, at least it suits me, I am not the fastest myself on the computer.


    • I found it a fascinating sky with the cloud formations. I have a sneaky feeling that it was my fault that the computer lost the connection, I dropped something near the internal workings, but the main thing is that it is working again.
