Arlene and two adopted dogs.

Just a blog from someone who loves to communicate with other dog owners

Technology…………..Bah !!!!

I have lots of old VHS tapes mostly of the grandchildren when the were young, also of my dogs that have gone. I was hoping to transfer them to DVD so sat one afternoon and sorted out all the ‘bits’ I had a tape in the VHS player and wanted to eject it, it just didn’t want to co-operate, it was well and truly stuck behind the flap which was open. After much tugging and pulling I eventually resorted to pliers to release it. The equipment was well and truly scuppered.
I went online and purchased another, it was 2nd hand as I don’t think they make them anymore. I’ve been catching up with gardening for a week or so, but as to-day is misty and chilly thought it a good day to work on it.
I’ve spent half the morning trying to get the creature connected, only realizing that the new TV I’d bought has no scart sockets. Grrrrrrrr.
The sun has come out (nearly) so what do I do,, have another go or do some gardening????, BTW there were no instructions nor remote with the VHS player, not a happy bunny.


  1. Hi Arlene 🙂 I’d go out and enjoy the great outdoors and the sun while you can. Also inspiration might strike whilst you’re away from the item of your angst! I remember well having your stuck VHS problem. ..It was a nightmare. Not my VHS and a video that shouldn’t have been in there to begin with ooh dear! TThey’d have killed me if I’d broken it and had me shot at dawn if they knew I’d been using it in 1st place! ! Now I just battle to get disks out of disk drives on the laptop ,)

  2. Hi Pen, yes I updated the episode LOL

  3. Arrrgh!! Can imagine your irritation and desperation too, Arlene, for no scart means no easy connection.. Technology can bite …hard.. I see you’ve done a further update so I’ll click-on and read it,… hugs to you three.from me.. xPenx
