teafinder

Y'know how, when your cordless phone is misplaced, you can hit the page button and it'll beep & reveal its whereabouts? Or if your cell is missing, you can call it and follow the ring (assuming you haven't turned off the ringer)?

I regularly find myself thinking - for split-second, irrational moments - that I'll page my missing tea, which I've put down somewhere then wandered off. Then I realise that I can't page my tea.

And then I think - for longer, slightly-more-rational, petulant moments - that, dang it, I should be able to page my tea...and my glasses...and my wallet...and my rings...and my knitting needles...&c.

Heyyyyy - maybe if I fasten my cell phone to my tea mug...

While you're at it, can you page the 4 single knitted socks I've misplaced?

You could buy lots of those keyrings that beep when you clap for them and attach one to everything you often lose, although when you clapped you would have to work out which beep was the one you were looking for.....

in fact now you can indeed page anything you like... sort of!!!

let me find the link......

bloody hell i am such a dick.....

www.loc8tor.com

of course!!!!

You can buy stick on things to attach to anything then track it down, so you could stick one on your mug, your phone, your remotes, keys... blah blah I promise I am NOT on commission!!

ahhhh i might just have spotted the flaw in the product.....

I think William Burroughs said something about penknives.... They're great but you need one to get the blades open on another one and so ad infinitum.

What the hell happens if you lose the loc8tor device??

oh it's an infinite frigging loop!!!

Oh yes...... I just remembered..... in Viz's "top tips" they had something that would solve all your problems.

Tired of losing your car keys, or your wallet?

Simply buy a ball of string. Tie one end of the ball of string to an item in your house and continue to make your way around the house wrapping one loop of the string around each item you pass.

When you have looped every item in your house and come back to the first item, tie the other end of the string to it.

Now, when you lose something, you just have to follow the string until you come to it.....

genius and very cheap too.

To get your profile margin back up to the top right you will need to narrow one of your pictures which has leaked into the margin zone and is causing this knock down effect. By the way - hello!
