I finally got a Bluetooth USB adaptor, and hope and prayed would work as got one that didn’t say on package that would worked on Mac, but the Mac OS X bluetooth software got it working. In case any with a Mac is insterested, it is a Kondor USB BT Adaptor that most of the phone shops in my High Street sell. By the time I got to last one and found the same product (even packaging) I decided to buy from Vodafone and checked if didn’t work I could take back. Luckily it did.
Was quite surpised when I iSync’ed that even the contacts photos were sync’ed. At the moment, I believe that only the Address book can be sync’ed but Apple are working on that.
It’s hot, raining (outside) and I can’t sleep. So I am having a nice relaxing bath at 1:10am listening to the rain and the beeping of the keypad as I write this on my phone
WOOHOO! About an hour ago I checked my bank (online of course) and this months pay is in there. The one thing I hate about my job is being paid monthly (would prefer weekly or fortnightly), but at least I get paid.
Talking of work, it’s been a few months and a lot of work, but someone I referred to a job got it. And if that wasn’t rare enough, I may have another 2 to come.
The second kit of Home-Made wine is nearing completion. I have to leave for a while for anything that can to settle on the bottom of the Demi-john.
Most of Saturday and some of Sunday I spent drinking a bottle of the first batch of home-made wine.
Well it seems like as every week goes by, I post less and less to my Blog. But I will try to post more often if I can.
I have started on my next batch of Home Made Wine and tomorrow will be adding the finings and by Sunday should be ready to start bottling.
What else has been happening. Oh, I have rearranged my Computer desk as I now have a monitor stand with a pull out keyboard tray.
I am still watching Big Brother and what a twist this week having a Big Brother Africa contestant enter the house. Although I think that Gaetano’s first night was not the best it could have been calling Tania a Pig. But hopefully the housemates spirits should lift when Cameron returns later today.
I now have GPRS on my 7650 switched on. I am on Vodafone Pay as you Go tariff and found out I could get this. When they switched on I could get to work all through yesterday. So when I got home I checked out their web site and they could send me the GPRS settings which finally worked. Only thing (which I noticed fairly quickly so didn’t lose loads of credit) is you are charged more for viewing Non-Vodafone Live sites (0.73p per Kb) than Vodafone Lives sites (0.1p per Kb).
So if I am surfing the Net and may be a while will be cheaper (a lot cheaper) to use Dial-up than GPRS although a lot slower. Maybe one day the price will come down again. I can always live in hope.
In case you are interested here are the details of my wine making.
Product = Solomon Grundy 7 Day Medium Dry White 6 bottle wine kit
Day 1 = Temp – 28C / 81F Specific Gravity – 1.090 (Next details on Day 5)

Been busy at work this week, so this is first chance I really had to write in my blog.
On Sunday, a colleague invited me to a Barbeque at their house. Was a great afternoon and I was allowed to do all the cooking. What is it with Men and Barbeques that we have to do the cooking? Anyway I was helped by another colleague who made sauces, etc and all the food was really liked and was nothing left at end. Lots of drink was drunk as well! 🙂
I was given a lift home at about 10:30 and was told the last 4 people there were still talking when the collegue who had organised had gone to bed at about 12:30! I am glad I got my sleep that night!
