Appliances

Theory of electronics says - only when you're busy everything must (not will) go haywire.

As to date - the printer refuses to print unless we obediently go to it, beg and carress. It seems to prefer women. Thank god.

The fax occasionally goes mad and claims its toner is low and then after buttons are pushed by men, she seems to be okay. Sigh not good.

The phone refuses to stop ringing nor do you get a line to call out. Steps to acquire that elusive line includes, praying, begging, seducing, promising sweets and candies before lo behold one line stops blinking busy! It is not known which gender is preferred since everyone seems to be bullied by the phone!

Actually when these happen, I'd say it is their way of telling you that you are working too hard - and so you must get away from them all the phone, fax the printer and go have a pedicure done!!
(seriously, that is a universal law..One applaince gives trouble and slowly it spreads to the whole office!)

My cellfone is the most reliable thing :) Quite old - some 7 years and does not look sleek - looks like a mini cordless... but not faced a single prob with it for these 7 years... I get a chance to tease all my friends who have probs with their latest "sleek" and "stylish" mobiles :)

BTW, thanx for the compliment for the foto.. andha cute kid - naaneh thaan :D

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings.

Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers.
