Speaking the lingo

Bloggie friends!

There I was trying to catch up with all your blogs when this message flashes up in luminous purple on my screen:

“Your Dell computer is about to start an enumeration of hardware scanning”.

When my computer starts to speak to me and in better English too, it’s definitely bed time!

Charlie says: Bath time first, then snooze time.


Thanks again for all your lovely well wishes!! Let's hope Spring brings new beginnings and fresh opportunities and good health for all!

Japan Earthquake Appeals:

British Red Cross, World Vision, Global Giving, Save the Children

Here is one for animals: Wetnose Animal Aid: they help animals in need all over the world and have a special donate button specifically for the Animal Refuge in Kansai, Japan

Have a lovely day, y'all!

Mom is trying to update her iPad OS and this is a first...she doesn't know it if will erase all of her apps or not...*sigh* and she still has nearly 50 minutes to wait...computers.

Hello dear Charlie.

Hey there, my computer 'speaks' to me, 'Joanna Lumley' says, 'you've got email', which comes as a great surprise to shy and humble me :-)
All very worthy links you have shared.
Nice to see y'all are now speaking just like an American, y'all. What next? Americans saying 'how are you duck?'
Penny the Jack Russell dog says, 'Arf, arf!' :-)
Take good care,

Your blog mirrors your giving personality, focused as it is on helping those in need!

And you, too, need to be well. Charlie needs you!! And so do your bloggie friends!!!

Spring IS coming. Be well. (I'd go to bed, too, if my computer started talking to me!!)

KarenMcG said...

Old Kitty and Charlie, it looks like you both have the right idea; "Old Kitty" for going to bed while the Dell does its things.

And Charlie for not really paying much attention at all, except for getting in a few good licks.

Thank you for remembering those in Japan and for including the links in your post.

Clarissa Draper said...

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. I hate when my computer thinks it's smarter than me!

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Very good links, Charlie. Thank you.

Yes, bathing before napping gets you in the mood to totally zzzzzz out!

JC said...

I will check those cat links out ...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Can't forget the animals!

Theresa Milstein said...

Yes, talking computers definitely mean its bedtime. Let the thing figure out what it's doing while you're sleeping.

How nice of you to provide links to donate.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

if I saw that message I would think it was time for sleep too!
Thanks for sharing another way that we may help the people of Japan
(((((hugs)))) to you and Charlie!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Such a sad event. So much devastation. And I never even gave the animals a thought. What a tragedy!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Your computer talks to you? Never heard of an enumeration of hardware scanning. What does it mean?

Summer Ross said...

Great picture of charlie- I hope you have a good nights rest.

Margo Berendsen said...

The Japan disaster has been on my mind a lot (and my blog - as you know!) but thank you for reminding me to donate!

RaShelle said...

Oh. My. Goodness. I love that pic of Charlie! Adorable. Have a great night. =D

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

The devastation in Japan is heartbreaking. I gave to the International Red Cross as they have a fund up for japan.

Mr Puddy said...

You will have a good beginnings, Charlie !
I believe that : )

Have a wonderful day my friend !

fairyhedgehog said...

I don't think my computer has ever told me it's going to enumerate!

Thanks for the links. Take care of yourself, won't you?

Kea said...

There also is World Vets at http://www.worldvets.org/. I only recently heard of them via the CB.

March 17th is Paws for Japan Day, apparently (I've added it to my scheduled post), a fundraising effort for World Vets.

Have a great Tuesday and smooches to Charlie!

brigid said...

Glad you are feeling better, what a posh computer you have!!

Simon Kewin said...

Ah, technogibberish. We software developers just make it up for a laugh you know!

LTM said...

ahh... and Charlie simply bathes. I have to confess, I've NEVER seen that message! scary... ((hug)) <3

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie is furry white and it looks as though he must have had dozens of baths today - he sparkles with whiteness!!
We would love simple words for computer speak!!
We're glad you like the new blog header - mum had been thinking about one and out of the blue Ann from Zoolatry sent us an email for our blogaversary with this header attached. We have had quite a lot of good comments about it and mum likes it because it makes her think of spring and warmer weather.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

Sometimes our computer talks to us too, but it's mostly rude!

Marg said...

Thanks for the sites to help the animals over in Japan. It is all so sad. Our hearts sure do go out to all those people over there.
Hope you are feeling better.
Good idea Charlie, a nice bath and then a good snooze.

Ann said...

Don't you hate that when Machines start talking to you. I especially hate that woman in the car who insists on giving me the wrong directions!

Ellie said...

LOL. You must have a special Dell, mine hasn't spoken to me yet!

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

We are purraying for all the two leg and four leg beings in Japan.

We love both of you so very much and are so very thankful for your friendship.

Susan Fields said...

Thanks for the Japan links - it's so nice to hear the animals are getting help!

Here's to a healthy, productive spring!

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Hahahaha. Oh, Dell computers.

As always, CUTE KITTY!

KarenMcG said...

Hi "Old Kitty" and Charlie,

I thought sure I posted on here last night/Monday night. Must have closed out instead without posting it.

Anyway, we're hoping you're having a great day.

And thank you for posting about the places to contribute for those in Japan.

Esme said...

Thank you for these links. It is terrible what has happened over there.

Ginger Jasper said...

You have a lovely day too.. Hugs GJ x

The Golden Eagle said...

Thank you for the links! And what a great idea to help animals in need, all over the world.

Talli Roland said...

Yikes, if it's not you, it's your computer!

Thanks for all the wonderful links!

soggibottom said...

Well done for this post XXXXXXXXX

I've been playing with nibbles...
He is a very hungry hamster by the way...
Amie wondered if Charlie could nip down here and give her a quick lick and brush up !
:-)xxxxxxx

What a beautiful cat. I just signed up as your newest follower. Headbonks and purrrrrs from Avalon.

Kat_RN said...

Good luck with that. My computer has been smarter than me for a long time. Spontaneous is still my favorite "Lap top".
Charlie is such a beauty!

My computer once told me there were too many errors in my document to be specified. It was the first time I'd been insulted by something not living.

Madeleine said...

As a stylish blogger I have an award for you on my blog :O)

Guinevere said...

My Mac has never used such big words with me.

Thanks for the links - I'm definitely going to check out Wetnose. I feel so sad for what the Japanese people - and the animals - are going through right now.
