Tea and Sympathy - 2023

forced air is very drying Helga - I'll look up if there are any ideas to help ♥
:-26:-26:-36
The Humidifier does not seem to help a lot !
Will be on control mode by my doctor from April 5th and will
mention it to him after the 3 weeks.

I don't know if this qualifies to be posted in the "tea & sympathy" threads but, I really needed to whine and knew not where else to do that...

As some of you may know, I've struggled with inadequate computer hardware for awhile. Then recently, I had renewed hope of putting my designing hat back on when I won an iPad. ho-hum..sadly (I'm nears tears on this), after a week of back & forth discussions with Adobe customer service, I'm still unable to get back to work using photoshop (ProCreate doesn't do the things I need)! I've purchased & cancelled the cloud subscription a couple of times in the past week (my head is spinning) because the customer service folks have been contradicting themselves, over & over...I actually got to voice communicate with someone today but that didn't help at all, one would think things would be easier than this; all I want to do is access my subscription to run on my iPad! Of course, it doesn't help at all that I've never used apple products before - they are so different from Microsoft! I'm going insane! If only I drank alcohol, then I could have a little wine to go with my whine. 🍷
 
Oh I hear you regarding tech stuff. Apple products are not my favourite thing. I have an i-pad as well and wouldn't attempt to scrap on it. I am a hard core PC gal. Tell you what... I'll have the wine for you!🍷:-36

thank you Kythe; enjoy the wine (not that it matters but when I DID drink, I preferred white wine to red). :rolleyes:
 
me too and I love prosciutto - in fact, I'm going to buy some soon, maybe!
??? prosciutto is an Italian meat (ham), how does it have anything to do with wine?

ETA: Did you mean Precoce?

This is the generic name (not the vineyard or producer's name) of a sparkling wine from our Friuli Venezia Giulia region. Made from the Ribolla Gialla grape variety it has a delicate and fresh aroma of tropical fruits. Drink it as an aperitif or as the perfect accompaniment to a plate of Prosciutto di San Daniele.

I just started to use photoshop CC on iPad, got it from the app store. It's not like using it on a PC, a bit limited but as a stop gap when travelling its fine, then I finish off when I get home as the stuff is saved in the cloud. Just logged in using my subscription and away to go. I use it with procreate...save the changed image to the file on the iPad then import to procreate to mess about. You can also use Photoshop express on ipad which has templates, filters and elements to play with. Good fun

Thank you for your comment; I'm glad it works for you! I am, apparently, locked out now. :-(
 
Just wanted to let you know why I'm missing again after just coming back. Just before Xmas 2021 my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I discovered a lump in my breast which was diagnosed as early stage cancer then to top it all off at the same time my niece aged 51 was also diagnosis with Bile Duct Cancer ( they say it comes in threes!). She fought hard but sadly lost her battle two weeks ago and now I have to deal with going to her funeral so soon after my husbands.
Not looking for sympathy at all, just offloading and letting it out.
Back when I feel I can.

Barb, it's a very sad time for you. Thinking of you and sending you big hugs...
 
Barb, my heartfelt condolences to you ! They say that every second
person will get cancer in their life. :oops:

Please take good care of you !
