Busy busy administration day today. It has been real cold, the boiler here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House in the tranquillity of Umbria has been consuming lots of wood, I seem to have spent every spare minute feeding it, it is greedier than I am!
Nevertheless, the sun has been shining and guests have been out and about. Today the scenic route to Assisi and the delightful Umbrian town of Spello. The roads are quiet, pace unhurried, and churches and museums not too crowded, and they are bowled over by the beauty of the region.
Bak at base, I have spent the day doing a bit of re-seeding of lawns and mountains of paperwork. As a divertimento with work almost done I decided to switch on the tv – that is the big black thing in my house under layers of dust, so unloved and ignored. So when finally at the end of a long black windy thing I found the plug, I plugged it in, and switched on and then switched on my Apple tv box to receive the message ‘software update’
So I software updated, twenty minutes later the machine then gave me joy of joys a whole list of English language films and tv programmes and all furthermore payable in £ sterling. Finally I can watch films in English. Hurrah!!
But first, I was asked to enter my Apple id password. Not accepted…..
I had changed my password only the other day, which is no longer a simple operation, all the Apple equipment of which I won many pieces have to individually be given the new password, and of course that includes my private email addresses… Just how long does that all take? too long, specially when the Apple TV did not recognise either old or new passwords, so change once again. And to my horror, I am back to films dubbed in Italian, no choice, no English Aargh!! Why won’t Apple let me watch programmes and films in any language OTHER than Italian? Yes I speak and read Italian but I prefer to relax in front of a film in English, surely I cannot be alone in that?
Any kind reader out there with a UK address willing to let me keep my sanity and share their UK iTunes account with me?
