Mab I know how you feel. We have one clock that we can't set, we have to wait for DD to do it. I would be happy with a normal clock in the bedroom but DH cant stand them ticking, or even clicking.

I wouldnít be able to sleep if I could hear the ticking of a clock either cookie, I think the one in my bedroom might be making a faint sound but with my hearing I donít hear it.  For an alarm clock Iím using one of those old type travel clocks which Iíve had for 58 years.  The case has fallen off but I just stand it up against the clock radio, I just find it so much easier to set and I trust it completely whereas the digital ones youíve only got to forget to do something and you get caught out.

I agree with you both re instructions being impossible. I bought a digital cube radio from Costco and had no idea how to set it up.  I obviously fluked some of the stations but none that Iíd listen to. Itís all too hard.

Loved the quotes you wrote Marina.

The good old travel clocks were the best Judy .
Well a lot of research to find a portable hot plate I ended up with Breville portable induction hot plate . Also a saucepan and a little fry pan and one pot thatís shallow with a lid . This was the best answer as we are still in Melbourne and I had a cooking issue with the stove so quick answer ! Itís not bad but boy does it heat fast ! Scrambled  eggs in seconds !! Fish was ok and then I perfected it with chicken tenderloins. Mind you the unit was a pathetic  price compared to the pots and oh why we have Themomixers .

No one can set the clock on my Meile oven. Not even the technician who came to service it. I find it really enjoying.

Why do manufacturers have to make things so hard ... what on earth can be so difficult about setting a clock that many of us cannot do it easily .. surely they can simplify this basic action ... it used to be all you had to do was press one or two buttons and everything was good, but no more.  Having said that, every time the clocks change DH has to resort to the instruction manual to remind him how to do it

Just lashed out and bought 10 aprons ... unfortunately not for me, all for work (but I will snaffle one for myself once the embroidery is completed).  I went out to the  manufacturers and they had a beautiful, peaceful, plant filled office and cafeteria; I was quite jealous as we are so cramped for space at work - I guess that is the difference between working way out in the 'burbs as opposed to near the CBD!

At a guess I would say it is handy for your business near the CBD Marina.
