  1. Re: Why would you subscribe to Sky - unless you are mad on sport?

    But I can do that with You Tube - usually every day. Even if you want to watch something in particular, like a series or something. I can't see the advantage of Sky.

    Re: Wellington Trams - a question.

    As far as I am aware, yes they are. They have the two types of Wellington trams, the faducia and the open saloon (called the toaster :lol:).

    Re: Wellington Trams - a question.

    Thanks very much for that, Pato. I lived in Hataitai in the 1950s and rode the trams quite often but I never knew what the lights were for. I was only a youngster at the time so I was rarely out at...

    World Series

    The World Series Baseball is on again in America. I wonder why they call it the World Series? They never invite anyone else in the world so why do they call it the World Series?:rolleyes: Is it...
  7. Why would you subscribe to Sky - unless you are mad on sport?

    Unless you are a sports fanatic, I see no reason as to why you would subscribe to Sky. There is so much free content out there, on You Tube in particular, that you would be just wasting your money...

    Re: Why must I delete my emails twice?

    I don't delete anything accidentally. Most of the emails I delete are from the Junk folder so I only give them a quick glance then delete.

    But I like Wainui's idea and will delete them that way....

    It is Outlook on Windows 10. It is not the online version.

    Why must I delete my emails twice?

    When I delete an email in Outlook, it does not delete it but puts it in the "Deleted Items" where I have to finally delete it.

    Is there any way I can delete emails with just one go?

    It's...

    Re: You all alright?

    No, it's not, although I posted that some time ago I do not remember where I obtained that information. I should have said where I obtained it from. Sorry about that, chief.

    One thing I've noticed is, on the news, about the glaciers melting as if it's something new. I recall when visiting a glacier a few years back, that they had pictures on the viewing platform, of the...

    Be that as it may, I have watched many You Tube videos and have not seen any ads. So where are they?

    We have a cat that brings them in at night, very occasionally thank goodness, and leaves them, thankfully dead, in the hallway. In the morning we keep an eye out just in case.

    We don't like the ads. We have little idea what they are on about as we mute the ads. Much more bearable.
