I have one particular external HD that insists it is still in use, when I know I have closed everything. Now I don’t even ask my computer if it is safe to remove it, because I know it is and it will tell me it is not.
There seem to be different names in use for these little devices. I call them Flash Sticks, because you know, the small ones are sticks and they flash!
My sister in the UK calls them Memory sticks. I believe they are also referred to as USB or U, pen, thumb(nail), drives or sticks.
Removing these little guys isn’t too much of a problem. My main frustration is when you have stayed up a little too late watching ‘stuff’ online and now you really need to go to sleep. You try to shut down your laptop, only to be met with the Windows statement, Update and Shut Down or Update and Restart. No other options! Grrrr!
This rose is from my garden. I only have three rose bushes; one large plant that produces an abundance of pink roses, with little scent, and two small ones that produce only a few red blooms, but with a magnificent scent.
I wish I could somehow transmit this beautiful aroma across the ether!
This red rose is for all my Northern friends; especially Pam at Butterflysand, who loves roses.
Today, November 11th, is Armistice Day and it is also Remembrance Sunday. It is 100 years since the end of World War One.
Traditionally red poppies are worn to symbolise those that grew on battle fields such as in Flanders Fields. Often it is hard to find any poppies for sale here in Cape Town, but this year I was happy to see a woman standing outside the local shops selling poppies; the one in the photo.
A two minute silence is held to mark the end of the First World War, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
Because we should remember all those fallen in all wars.
