  • Philippe , enjoy you BB lol... persevere with it and you will soon get used to it.
    Mine is about 3 years old- I have never had any problems with it and it is still working just fine... my iphone is thrown in a drawer somewhere- the battery drains far too fast on that one.
    Yes, I know the BB cannot compete with a lot of smart phones on many functions and qualities BUT... I still can't see me changing to something else... I keep being tempted by the androids but I would have to borrow one from someone for a few days and test drive it before i commit.
    Until then I shall hang on to my much loved BB.

        I already start to be very at ease with it.

        My only major complain about it... you need to PAID for have a multiple alarm. It's very cheap!!!
        I usually use 3 ring per day
        - One for wake me up
        - Second for being sure I'm really wake up 30 minute later than the first ring
        - Third for advise me it's 20 minute before office close and I must start to finish/pack up thing.

        The BB have only 1 cheap alarm no way I will pay for an alarm!
        I keep the old phone for personal use anyway.

        The BB is work oriented and he do all what I NEED.
        I not interested by the I-Phone... look too much like a toy than a tool!

        and... everyone know, a tool is a toy for man : D

        And now I have a though for my huge toolbox I had left behind in Canada!

          • Hope you manage to figure out the routine. Besides, "Squashed by Sky Train Gate" is too much for a headstone.

              • My father in law has been in ICU for the last week, he was admitted because he had pneumonia and a UTI.
                The family are not at all wealthy so cost has been an issue, we have done all we can to fund his treatment.
                Even if the treatment was free the situation would be unlikely to be any different.
                We are about to pull out of the house purchase we were involved in, this will pay the hospital costs to date.
                Sadly my FIL is not strong enough to have the anaesthetics that would be needed for the exploratory techniques the hospital need to perform to seek out the underlying heart problems and also it is believed that he has something very seriously wrong in his abdomen (probably cancer).
                At this point we have had to decide to cease funding his treatment.
                A very hard decision and not made lightly... but it has come to the time to let him go back home and end his days with dignity where he wants to be- amongst his family.

                A very hard time for all concerned.

                • I feel for you. I hope you wont be offended by what i say next.

                  A friend here in Indonesia, her father got sick, they were a reasonably well off middle class family, the father had been a bank manager. Anyway he got sick, and to most it was obvious that the condition was terminal. The family however ended up using all the savings, and selling there nice house to pay the medical bills. Of course he died anyway. SO the father that had prepared for his family, basically died leaving them in almost poverty. It is not something he would have wanted, and later the family realised that they had been very short sighted, but followed their emotions.
                  Its a hard decision to make, but the way things are here, it makes little sense to use all the money available to help someone who is terminally ill, who will die soon anyway, and leave their loved ones in a terrible situation. I know if it was me who was sick I would not let my family loose everything.
                  Many may disagree with what I say, but the events above are true, and I am entitled to my opinion. I wont debate it later.

                    I am with you Jim. My mother keep reminding us, everytime she got sick, that she is here for her children and her children only happiness. She managed her wealth for her children so when she is gone, she will be gone in peace knowing her children have a roof to live. Therefore, if the health care is too costly, she wants us to let her go. I am only saying this to agree with Jim, but of course we will still do our best to provide the best care for our loved ones..

                    I am now set aside a fund, for myself, in case this things happen and I wouldn't want my family suffer in the future...

                    • Tu as toute ma sympathie B_A (better write in French than write something that would sound strange in English!!!)

                      I'm not sure about my memory... Is it him who fall from the roof not so long ago?

                      I pass the whole day at home yesterday because my little one is sick.
                      I'm now in office for a special meeting and will go back home as soon as possible.
                      She puke whatever she eat or drink.
                      It's extremely heart breaking to have her asking for drink until crying and can't give her nothing as she will puke it and make her state even worse.
                      She ever got that one year ago, my wife was totaly unable to handle it... the little one had end up in the hospital.
                      No way she will end up there again!!!
                      I had go to doctor, buy the drug, and take care of her all day and night long.
                      With the drug she can't eat in the beginning but can drink... only a very small amount. If too much, she will puke it.
                      For avoid she dehydrate, I had give her small amount of water every hour.
                      There is the heartbreaking part, when you need to stop her drinking for she don't puke it, and you have her crying for drink more because she is thirsty.

                      Hopefully, with good care, after 24 hour she was able to drink more. This morning she was able to drink enough for cut the thirsty and start eat little.
                      Still need to take care of her, will take 2 more day for her stomach fully recover and she can eat normally.


                      My concentration will definitively not be all there at the meeting!
                      Can't wait to go back home!

                      • Thanks ... Jim, no offense at all... better to have a cut off point 'cos once the money is gone it is gone. Better to keep some in reserve for whatever the future holds.
                        And Philippe, French is fine... I did study it for many years but I did forget most of what I learnt. As for the man and the ladder - that was my father and he is perfectly healthy now. Thank you for remembering him though x The man who is sick is my very lovely father in law.
                        I hope your daughter gets well very soon xxx hugs
                        Miss Naughty, yep, I fully agree.
                        As I said to my hubby, what if one of the kids got sick I am sure FIL would rather we had something to help the ones with their life in front of them ... I have just spent a while chatting with the doctor and he fully explained (in excellent English) the entire diagnosis and prognosis.

                        Even if we had lots of money for the hospital we would have no guarantees that FIL would get any better than he is which is critically ill, with heart failure amongst other conditions... not least of which is a thrombosis in his heart just sat waiting to break away and do its damage.

                          Oh dear.. hope your little one is ok.
                          don't push to give her too much liquid. At least a tea spoon per few minutes, so she doesn't get dehydrated. Giving her drinks everytime she cries will not help her, instead she will throw up more.

                          Some antibiotics can make this matter worse.. better stick with sugar salt liquid. Good luck.

                              It's the wife and mom in law that push for make her eat... me I need to fight back for they don't make her continually trow up.
                              I'm not a big fan of large use of any drug.
                              For the little one, it's the second time she have this, the first time she end up in the hospital... I had buy the medicament, but refuse the offer of the doctor for give her an injection for she don't puke. that just sound scary to me! an injection for she don't puke!

                              She start to get sick Wednesday afternoon, In evening I bring her to doctor for have the drug.
                              I had take care of her (need to fight with the in-law for they stop trying to feed her) all Thursday. In thursday evening she start to be able to drink more large quantity of water.
                              When I left for the office in Friday noon, she was already better and be able to drink all what she want and start to eat a little.

                              At this morning I can said she is no more sick, but her stomach still need to recuperate and she need to take back energy.
                              In 2 day she must be perfectly heal.


                              Yesterday, I need to go for a meeting, when I go back home, she was crying waiting for me...

                              • What you do when you have a little girl of 2 year and one of 10 month and you have only one phone for amuse them???

                                You give the phone to the older one and the charger to the younger one.
                                They had both play long time with their respective toy!!!

                                The younger one is on "destruction" mode. Whatever she have in her hand she will try to destroy it.
                                What is "funny" (depending of your point of view) is how much she will use all of her concentration with raised eyebrow for doing so.

                                Hmmm.... That must come from the mother side... **whistle emoticon**
