You know... story of the week, about the supposed six-year-old carried away in his dad's silver flying-saucer-shaped balloon in the US of A?
Twas a publicity stunt that became unstuck in a big way. The local police supposedly said in response, "they put on a good show and we bought it"!
Apparently they were former reality-TV show contestants, still seeking some attention... but poor Balloon Boy blew his additional fifteen-minutes of fame, huh?
My home CD player has been playing silly-buggers lately... playing one CD then not the next, for no good reason. Despite frequent cleanings and all that, it continued acting stubborn on me.
Makes it hard when I want to listen to some of my 500+ music CD's [plus about another 100 'mix' CD's...], huh?
I had one of those 3am 'brainwaves'... I'd totally forgotten that I had my late mums' old DVD player, sitting in the backroom, wholly unused [and all covered-up and packed away]. D'oh to me! [The only thing wrong with it, now that I remember, is that the remote control doesn't work for it anymore... but that's no biggie... I can just imagine my late dad probably dropped it in the loo or something years ago! heh heh].
Plugged it into the stereo, and voila - now I have a CD player that plays everything again. Yay!
When being continually stuck inside at home due to undependable and unpredictable health, and listening to music is a huge part of your psyche... you just gotta do these things.
