H.M.S. Serendipity


H.M.S. Serendipity

H.M.S. Serendipity rested in the model boat pool to take on fresh water. Sitting by the pool with his remote control for the H.M.S. Serendipity was Bert in a blissful languor as he imagined the sailors working on getting the water aboard.  

His wife Rose sat nearby on her folding chair eating an ice cream. She was about to burst his bubble as she secretly fumbled with her remote control for the pirate ship ‘Blag’ which rested in the deep shadows at the far end of the pool.

In H.M.S. Serendipity’s captain’s cabin the ship cat ‘Tortoise’ was sleeping on an upturned book about building model boats. A comfortable volume, thought Tortoise, with the exception of when the ship was on a rough ocean. At those times Tortoise would retire to the larger volume: “Mulberry growing for cats”.

On the pirate ship “Fluff” the dog looked though the cannon ports across the boat pool and chuckled: “Trifle with the Blag would you? Argghhh.”
 
Suddenly Bert was violently stirred from his languor and nearly dropped his large 99 flake as out of the blue a pirate ship with blazing cannons set upon the unprepared H.M.S. Serendipity and Tortoise fell off her book.

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.
