I'm here, was just saying to OH that everyone was quiet, perhaps we are forgetting what time it is as well as what day! Anyway here's another from my Sister -

A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, look at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off, he asked what she’d like as a gift. “I’d like to be eight again,” she replied, still looking in the mirror.

On the morning of her birthday, he rose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her to the local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald’s where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake.

Then it was off to a movie, with popcorn, a Coke, and her favourite sweets - M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed, exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well dear, what was it like being eight again?"

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. "I meant my dress size, you idiot!!!!"

The moral of the story: even when a man is listening, he is going get it wrong!

I am here Ann1984 and was thinking the same. I must admit I do spend too much time on here and am trying to stop looking in every five minutes lol. But I am here first thing and on and off during the evening.

At the moment it is hard to think of any non virus chat but I have amused myself, again, this evening by flitting around on YouTube watching clips from Phantom and Les Mis.

I am off to bed now to read my book until my eyelids droop. Take care, will chat tomorrow.

Ann1984 I haven't used a printer for years when I did I refilled my own cartridges and also used compatibles (on an Epson printer) you can get "compatible" (not replica) cartridges for Canon (not double n) printers online - possibly worth a try.

This is only given as an example - not a recommendation. https://www.printerinks.com/5086/2p-n-013/inkjet-cartridges/canon/i250/

You can also find refill kits online. but because of most newer cartridges being chipped - possibly not a good idea nowadays.

Ann1984 I don't think the prices on that site I linked to were that high - (three compatible cartridges for just over £10). The problem is that it doesn't seem to matter what make printers are the cartridge prices are going to be "over the top" that's why they sell the printers for so little, often for less than the cost of the cartridges, but the cartridges that come with them are NOT full of ink.

I don't think there is any market for second hand printers, so just buying a new one when ink runs out doesn't work.

This marketing strategy is used by others too - Polaroid cameras were sold cheap but the price of film was astronomical, certain razor manufacturers use the same technique the razors are cheap but the replacement blades are very expensive.

Ann1984 I get cartridges for my Brother laser printer from Amazon, they are 'compatible with …...' last 2/pack was £15.25 as opposed to Brother original at nearly £50 each. Google make and model number and see what comes up.
