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 .
