Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

PRINT YOUR OWN and save the Seller money!

Date: 2nd March 2018

Am I really the only Grumpy Old Woman -GOW - who strongly objects to the Absolute Cheek of companies these days who expect us to print off pages and pages of documentation which in the past came in the form of a nice brochure - easy to read and file.  There used to be a more recent option of paying a few pounds to have a brochure sent to you - and even that now seems a thing of the past.

Maybe it is my age but I like to have something in my hands to read and highlight if I wish and don't want to have to read documents 'On-line'

I've just renewed my Contents policy - and was too lazy to shop around - so I've had to print off 10 pages of 'stuff' at my expense.  What happens if you don't have a printer?  Mind you 10 pages is moderate - I've had documents before which ran to 28 pages and with colour!

You are now expected to print your own Airline Boarding Passes, your Eurostar tickets etc. and so forth and to add insult to injury, they often have coloured adverts although I've now found the button to transfer the document to just Black and White - thus saving on my expensive colour inks.

I'm moving home and am extremely grateful that I wasn't asked to print off all the Bumph which has plopped onto my doormat from the solicitor - although I'm sure the cost will be reflected in the final bill. Without a word of a lie - one package was a quarter inch thick and the second was a half inch thick.  For the latter I had to literally summon up the courage to read all the stuff - or attempt to read and understand it.  When I moved 15 years ago it was a doddle compared with today.  The official 'Stuff' is unbelievable.  One document stated that my purchase might be in a flood area - its at the top of a hill! This was occasioned by the fact that a million years ago there was a pond which overflowed and is now long since gone??  

Apart from the annoyance and inconvenience of all this 'literature' - I thought we were supposed to be saving the planet and cutting down!

Sorry to sound so cross but moving is stressful.  I hope I will soon get back to normal and be able to share with you the wonders of Peru, Machu Pichu and also my superb holiday 'Canada and New England in the Fall' - that's if you are interested.  I sometimes wonder if I write my blogs for myself.

Hope you aren't being too badly inconvenienced by the snow.  Best wishes,  Jan
