Good morning everyone.  Another cool and overcast morning here.
Cookie, I will be interested to hear what you think of the tmx 6.

Our last day of 40+ for a few days. Iím not sure whatís going on but the barometer is dropping very fast. Perhaps we will get a storm tonight. I feel for the NZ and Aussie cricketers here playing a test.

Yes, just watching it on TV you tend to forget how hot the conditions are for them cookie.

Your weather sounds dreadful Denise, all cooped up in a caravan so how are you amusing yourselves?
We keep busy Judy. DH is an extra pair on site when needed. I keep myself busy doing the normal household chores plus the odd night babysitting in London.😁

Julie the house will be fabulous once it's finished.We are so looking forward to the day we move in.

Keep cool ladies in those high temperatures that you all are experiencing.

I bet you are Cornish, I hope when it's finished you can share a photo or two if you feel comfortable with that.  :)

The forecast for Friday is 48 here  :o  :o  :o  I won't need my winter walking gear that day!  ;D

Morning all. OMG Julie , that is awfully hot.
Report on TMX 6.  Yes I was tempted. It is like the big sister to the 5.  Lots of electronic things to play with and they keep adding more.  But the big question was,  would it be an advantage being part of the built in system. ?   For example, a special program for cooking rice.  I find it quite easy using the method I use now.  So no real advantage to me.
Also the consultant was good but she was having problems using some programs as she hadnít upgraded her iPhone to include the new program. 
I did enjoy the company of the younger people at the demo and the shared interest in T MX. The Korean Pork dish was very nice but nothing that couldnít be made in the 31 or 5.  Even though they used the digital thermometer they still couldnít decide if the pork was cooked.
Conclusion,  certainly a step up from the 5 and a sign of how things are going with TMX design but nothing I canít do with the 5.

That's good and interesting feedback, Chookie.  Funnily enough, I have never been tempted to upgrade from the 31, it does all, and more, than I need so cannot see any reason to spend money on the upgrade ... which is strange for me as I am usually the first one to buy the next newest thing, changed days for me!

Thanks Chookie. I wondered about the new rice and thickening programmes. I donít have any dramas now so I doubt if I would use them.
I will definitely buy a 6 if my 31 dies, but until then the 31 and 5 are fine for me. I do love having 2 machines.

The young couple who were looking at the 6 were very interested but he didnít want to spend the money.   I felt sorry for her as she does a lot of cooking from scratch and would love one.
It is warming up here and tomorrow we are going to Geelong for an annual gathering of  staff and friends from the last school I worked at.  RAL also was well known as he did volunteering work with several handicapped kids and assisted with the VCE exams.

Good morning everyone.  I'm getting my hair cut this afternoon, so not looking forward to going out in the heat.  A visitor for afternoon tea when I come home.

I popped out and did some food shopping. Then I will go out Monday and do the Christmas shop.
Stay cool everyone.

Yesterday I did something to my laptop that wouldn't allow my camera to import photos.  DH (who is quite good with computers) and I spent about 2 hours going through every thing trying to work it out to no avail. Google was no help either  ;D

Luckily I back up my computer every Sunday night to an external hard drive after doing a virus check, so to cut a long story short, I basically wiped my computer and reinstalled from the backup I did 2 days earlier.  It took a few hours but everything was as good as new once re-started. I didn't lose any work either from those 2 days because I copied anything I had done and emailed it to myself so was easy to 'put it back' once it was up and running again. The day went quick, thank goodness for left overs.  ;D

On a nicer note, my new machine is in town and I should hear from a consultant today to arrange delivery!  I will be in and out the next 2 days so may not get to have a play until Friday.  :D

Good morning everyone.  Warming up here.
JulieO, so glad you were able to get your computer fixed.  I would be lost without mine.   I hope you get to have a play with your new machine.
