    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Thanks Pyxis - I saw a thread just now about it.
    I can't use any apple stuff as it doesn't work properly with all of my other kit. (And I like music too much but refuse to have apple music software on my computer) For some reason android just works better despite my best efforts with a horrible iphone in the past!!
    So its never been a problem for me.

    I don't really know how widespread it is, or why it only affects some people, and then only some things that they post.

    I have smart punctuation turned off on my phone too.

    I've had two small apples, and half a cantaloupe, c. 250 kcals. I shall have the rest later, with another small apple..
