so today we had to say goodbye to the dog, a constant companion for 14 years and one day. My heart is breaking.

Sorry to hear that mate. Sucks, doesn't it?

I still remember the day I had to say goodbye to my dog...Probably 8 years ago now and I still can't face having another. When we received her ashes we decided to put them in the river, because she used to love swimming. I'm stood there on a rock in the middle of the river, looking at this box, and my daughter, who about 5 at the time, said "Daddy, has Kasha gone to be a star in Heaven?" and I just bawled like a baby. Even now I can feel myself welling up.

Hope you're doing ok, mate...

That sucks mate. They are not pets, they are family. We lost one of ours two years ago and still miss her. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Can any of the pc gaming guys give an opinion? Cdkeys have civ 5 goty for £4 on pc and I was thinking of getting it for my son. Is it any good and do I need a super computer to run it or will a windows 7 laptop be ok?

@Vincent294 Thanks for your input. I've been reckless and spent a massive £4 on it and its just installing now

So yesterday had a massive row with one of the directors at the place I work. He seems to think he can tell me what to wear on the train on the way to work, and I think he can't. So I told him so in my no nonsense manner, which may have involved expletives and ended with him effectively banning me from wearing one of my t-shirts again. I am so over working here.

**le sigh**

It wasn't even that offensive...

@Red620Ti That's a bit draconian isn't it? Surely they have no authority outside of work? I could understand if you had a company uniform on (say like comet or something) and you were painting the company in a bad light but an unbranded tee that's nothing to do with where you work....

@crippyd: @Red620Ti:
Unless it was a rival company/ brand that you were wearing, or something that could be argued would be a "conflict of interests," it seems absurd that your Boss would complain about what you wear outside of work. Does he stalk you or something?

Is there anything more depressing than a closed down outdoor swimming pool that's stood empty for many years whilst the council and developers argue about what to do with it?

Banksey the artist agrees with me and has opened one at our outdoor disaster and entitled it dismal land. You have to look hard for the mans work amongst the other stuff but hopefully it will shame the council into finally doing something.

@vincent294 hope so. I'll go next week. It's really cheap too £3.00 each. Hopefully this warped Disney will finally shame the council into doing something (though I doubt it).

On Sunday, Nintendo had a stand where the Wii U was playable, with Splatoon and Woolly World and everything. It took us nearly an hour to get the boy to put the controller down! One of the women running the stand actually commented to us how good he was at the game, and couldn't believe he was 4 when we told her...Now my 4 year old son is having a Wii U for his birthday, with Splatoon.

Yay.

So, I'm in the hospital for a scan (they've moved them up to 6 monthly) and anyone who knows me knows that I'm not exactly fond of them. Anyway, sitting on the floor was a small child playing with Lego. His mum asked him if he was building a house and the reply "no, it's a prison. I want to go see daddy". I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

So, we had the plasterer in on Friday. He's not convinced that he's made enough mess so he's coming back on Monday to make some more 😡😡

Also, had the weirdest fault in the house today. Tv's worked ok, cooker worked, lights kinda worked but Xboxes refused to power up. Checked the mains coming in (had to blow the dust off my old meter) 136v. SWEB must've lost a phase.

After weeks of building work, painting plastering, God knows how many hours choosing curtains, furniture etc, we finished the lounge and dining room. My wife doesn't like it.
