Yeah.

My phone came preloaded with a bunch of Google apps, and a bunch of Samsung bloatware. I mostly ignore the Samsung stuff.

I do watch youtube on my phone occasionally though.

Edit: Ne'er mind, just checked it out. Not bad, but I still prefer the original here.

I figured as much.

The man's pretty good at singing stuff he doesn't know how to speak. He's done Korean a few times, as well as German.

According to the comments, it's passable.

Sorry to hear that my feathered friend. I know that feeling when stress on the job overtakes you, I've had that happened to me couple of times sad.gif .



mirocu
Thanks, guys.

Yeah, it's no fun and I can sure tell how much my departed boss really did because even though I have always been busy, it was never like this. And I can't really blame his father because he is 80, but we do need to change things around or this will happen again and most likely even worse. I'll probably talk to him on Sunday or so. He has a lot on his mind too this weekend, after all.
Sakiri
Well that's no good Miro!

Are you understaffed by chance? That can increase workload and stress. If it's that, hiring another on might help.

Other than that, I'm out of ideas.

I gotta replace my wedding ring today. It's been red and itching under it for a while now and I think I'm allergic. sad.gif

Just going to get something simple I think. I don't really want to spend a boatload on another ring.... this one was expensive in itself (over a grand) so I'm quite disappointed to begin with.

Before getting sticker shock, gotta remember prices include VAT, which for jewelry is 25%. So I paid a quarter of the price of the item in question in taxes....

This VAT scheme tends to make quite a few things ridiculously expensive. sad.gif

Not sure we can hire more, actually. What needs to change is how we do things as I have seen it's that that's changed now. We need to get it back to how it was.

Your ring has the ability to go into VATS?

People can be allergic to metal?! blink.gif
Funny I learn this right as I’m starting to shop around for an engagement ring. Hopefully future Mrs. Khajiit won’t be allergic. I’m sorry you are having to deal with this Saki. sad.gif

Also, that tax is crazy.
Sakiri
Yes, you can be allergic to metal. Usually it's certain metals, such as nickel, that's used in the alloy. I'm not sure what the gold alloy used in it is, so I'm not sure what I reacted to.

I bought one made out of titanium. Titanium is used in medical implants so it's typically hypoallergenic. There's always the chance for reaction, but it's highly unlikely.

When you buy the ring, avoid white gold(low gold content, high nickel content), and check what alloy they use for the gold if you opt for it. I developed this after 2 years. It can take a long time to show up.

If you're at all concerned and like white metal, palladium is an excellent choice, cheaper than platinum.

One of my bffs has a titanium wedding band and speaks highly of ut(also allergic to gold), but I don't think they make engagement rings of it.

Ok thanks for the info! My GF likes the color of white gold over gold. It’s good to have these options.

It turns out they do make engagement rings from titanium, I found a few. But they don't use titanium prongs to hold the stones. The metal is too hard or something.

White gold is usually rhodium plated, otherwise it would have a yellow tinge. The plating needs redone every few years or it starts to turn yellowish. I'd go with palladium or platinum. Platinum is redonkulously expensive. Palladium can run similar to gold. I'd thought of getting a palladium ring but the lady first showed me titanium and I liked those so I got one.

What do you think about silver?
Sakiri
I love and can wear silver. I have a box link chain I wear daily.

It does tarnish, but typically it makes the piece look like an antique. You can remove the patina if you don't like it.

You want to be sure to get .925 sterling at the least. If you're set on a diamond you'll probably need to specify that when at the jeweller. I want to say most of them would be set with cubic zirconia for reasons related to cost, as silver is cheaper than gold and the like. My ring is set with a small one. I personally can't tell the difference but I'm blind lol. They're worth next to nothing though and you'd probably feel cheap giving her one.

Speaking of engagement rings though, fun fact. Used to be you gave her a pearl ring for a while. They fell out of favor when marketing for diamonds started(which aren't rare, just highly monopolized by DeBeers) and that silly month/two month/whatever BS budget for a ring happened. I'd be insulted by a solitaire myself. I dislike diamonds for cost reasons.

But I'm rambling.

TL;DR: if getting silver, which is an excellent choice, if you want a diamond/or several) you'll need to specify that. It'll cost more.

As an aside, my titanium band cost about 70 bucks. Compared to my gold with diamonds band.

I'll post a pic shortly for giggles.

The stone is set in a little swirly that kinda looks like the hurricane symbol on weather maps. One side is polished, the other a matte finish.

I think it's cute.

I wear a couple of sterling Celtic knot rings every day for over a decade and have had no trouble with them tarnishing. I just didn’t know how silver was viewed as engagement ring material. Don’t want to come off looking like a cheapskate, lol.

You can actually get .999 fine silver but it's soft as all get out and I wouldn't recommend it for jewelry.

It'd probably make you look like a cheapskate, silver right now is worth 87 cents per gram, compared to 62 bucks for gold, 76 for palladium, and 30 and change for platinum.

Don't let the platinum price fool you. It's denser, and you need more of it to make an equivalent item. it ends up costing more.

24 karat gold is also too soft to make jewelry out of.

That said, I'd worry less about what people think of you and more about what you think of her opinion.

I'd be offended by something expensive. Especially if money is regularly tight. I had no engagement ring for my current marriage. My last one was amethyst rather than diamond.

Unrelated side note, my dad's got covid, as does his 98 year old friend.

Sighs...

Her favorite color is darkish green. I want to get her an emerald ring made of a whitish metal.

Sorry to hear about your dad! I hope he’ll be ok!

Saki, I hope your dad and his friend recover okay. kvleft.gif

I have a titanium ring and am very pleased with it (cheap, looks nice, weighs nothing, indesdructible).
Sakiri
Emerald is fabulous. If I were you I'd aim for something like palladium or platinum over white gold. You have to replate it every so often or it looks bad among other things. Higher maintenance.

And yeah, titanium is a bit darker though. I'm really liking my titanium band. And, it didn't break the bank. I was ready to pay out the nose for something else. lol.

I'm sure dad'll be fine.

His friend is asymptomatic but tested positive. My problem is that if she develops symptoms it's likely to kill her, she's 98. I'm being realistic here. Woman's fragile as all get out now, it's only a matter of time, unfortunately.

Gonna miss her any way she goes. She's a really nice lady. Even if she can barely remember me(Alzheimer's).

All the best to your dad, Saki!
