Hello Kryp! I am well, thank you, and hope I'm finding you well, as well, lol.
It has been awhile, I've been around a little bit.
A lot going on here, being part of a large family guarantees that, I think and I also think I'm through expecting things to calm down someday, lol.

Hello El!{{{El}}}
Yes I think I have a little breathing room for a bit, a few days, anyway. I sure hope all has been well with you!

<quoted text>so the 13 colonies said "hey, we love you Brits, we just hate your taxes, so we'll fight this war and have tens of thousands of deaths and claim independance and start our own country?

Hmmmm....

Actually there must have been many poeple with mixed feelings at the time ...

After all, most of the people who faught in the war were brits against brits,

Also, therefore, naturally the early presidents would have been from that heritage ...

As to the German, apparently I was the victem of a fairly common rumour .. I did a little more research and it looks like it wasn't ever seriosuly considered .. but there are articles and websites that talk about this.
Somehow I also thought religious persecution was involved in the decision to leave GB way back when.

<quoted text>actually it would be smart to go metric .. do you know how easy it is to make mistakes using the 1/4,, 8ths, 1/16th etc on a measuring tape? Try doing some carpentry or home building, it;s a nightmare compared to metric.
....measure twice cut once :-)

<quoted text>'Morning Quincy...my e-mails are behaving themselves now, in fact, only yesterday I downloaded over 5000 of 'em..a serious backlog.

The problem arose when I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro....I was in a state of shock as I couldn't understand it, so I eventually re-installed Windows 7 which is now running parallel to 8 version, and ironically, now use Windows 8 by choice, having mastered it to a point, it's fast, it's easy and that's just me, hahaha

Wondering why you asked!.....:)

Now stop me if I am getting boring on Manchester but when I was at the University I noticed a plaque concerning computers on one of the buildings...bit of info here.

"Of course Chemistry does not have all the "Firsts" - just to be fair we should mention that in our sister science, Physics, Rutherford, who won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry, first split the atom at Manchester - commemorated by a blue plaque on a wall of one of the University's original buildings. Similarly in Bridgford Street there is a plaque celebrating the invention in 1948 of the world's first stored-program computer here at the University"

btw, electrical system, the mains supply does not matter as all computers work on the same voltage through adaptors, but we work
on the 230V system.
We spoke of the cards I enjoy making and while I would like to send you the software since your operating system will suffice, you wi likely be on your own for the card stock paper to print the cards. The packs come in 8 1/2 x 11 and that's inches. I don't think your paper is the same size as here is it?

The software is for adult/child use so its all quite user friendly.

yes to settle the new world , but the puritan I believe began in Holland and move to England and then on to the new world , the 13 colonies didn't come into existence until the declaration of independence

and yes the USA [13 colonies] said exactly that

info: Many paper size standards conventions have existed at different times and in different countries. Today there is one widespread international ISO standard (including A4, B3, C4, etc.) and a local standard used in North America (including letter, legal, ledger, etc.). The paper sizes affect writing paper, stationery, cards, and some printed documents. The standards also have related sizes for envelopes.

So do you think the Avery 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock is available in Wales?

Not so, or not in the way you think - that is a common fallacy. Religious persecution was involved - by the Pilgrim Fathers!! They left as Britain would not persecute those who did not subscribe to their version of the puritan religion, not because they themselves were being persecuted.

It was a lovely surprise to see you here last evening Paise, I
was in a mad rush as I had got held up getting back from the
Vets so it was action stations with about five minutes to spare before the match started...
We are fine here thanks for asking, and I sincerely hope that your husband has made excellent progress and that you are both well and
enjoying life after the ups and downs. Winter has not been too kind but I realize it could be much worse judging by the reports of the weather conditions over the Winter period in the US. Puts everything in perspective. We are in for more cold weather over here but all prepared and looking forward now to Spring.
How is the landscaping coming along, still busy? Ground manageable?
Make yourself at home here my friend, some freshly made muffins
over there...coffee is always on the go!...

I love those cards....just measured my paper and it is 11 1/2 x 8 1/4...would that suffice?

as for the e-mails, I managed to send the occasional one, but then I had some rejected (MAELOR DEMON) so left well alone until it
was sorted...back in business now....:)

I believe the Nederlands had complete religious freedom and the Puritans moved from England to practice their own religion..
but then they came back and decided t they would better moving to
new territory and the rest is history!

Brilliant result Krypteia....thought the yellow card unjust myself, don't know what you think, but anyway, they have a head start for the second leg so a disappointment they will be without Bale, but shouldn't be a problem, I thought Spurs ran rings round Inter Milan.....:)

Must admit I was of the same opinion as Quinn...a lot of sources would have you believe that they left because of religious persecution..in fact, I was watching a programme only the other night on the tv., Who Do You Think You Are..when actress Ashley Judd discovered an ancestor was one of the Pilgrim Fathers, but
he himself was imprisoned presumably for his beliefs prior to going to America, in fact she was shown the cell, and the plaque above denoting his imprisonment.
Also Tony, I learnt elsewhere that if those who had broken away from the Church of England did not attend serves on Sundays and Holy Days, they would be fined a considerable amount of money.
All which points to persecution?
Appreciate your comments on those matters. Thanks...

Morning El,yep a superb game and running rings round Inter Milan was unbelievable they were lucky they didn't concede more goals to be honest,it was unfortunate that Bale got yellow carded,I thought his foot gave way and fell but the ref booked him for diving but I suppose in the penalty area that's what he saw,now he's banned from the next game..
Now rugby all weekend end to look forward to,I put a five pond bet on England to beat Italy by certain amount of points..

'Morning Krypteia...glad I watched it, I really rate Lennon as well, and was glad to see the original goalie playing.
Shame about Bale but afraid you are right, a caution might have been nice ..:)
Now this Sunday we have Spurs versus Liverpool...you know how I feel about Liverpool, nobody can understand it me being a Man U supporter an' all, but that's how it is...so I am hoping L'pool
win that one! Then we have Man U....some surprising news this morning about Rooney...
No reason why England shouldn't win...so it will be drinks all round when you collect your winnings eh what?!....:)
