The first one I had was on my ring finger and it remained quite small. Over the course of about 5 years I had another 5/6 appear and a rather inconvenient one on the knuckle of my left index finger that caught on everything.
When I asked the doctor about having them frozen he asked which one was the first one. He said that was the root and getting rid of that will make the others go.
Sure enough the frozen first one went and within weeks all the others were gone too.

Frogs have smooth, moist skin and long, stripy legs and are likely to be found in damp habitats in the garden. Toads have warty skin, golden eyes and prefer to crawl rather than hop; if threatened a toad can puff itself up to appear bigger. Toads can tolerate drier habitats than frogs and spend less time in water.

I've got an Android phone and it upgrades automatically. Are there settings on there to look for an update?
(I realise this is possibly a daft question and you may have already looked, but just in case).

This might give some clues anyway http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/google-android/how-update-android-smartphone-or-tablet-summary-androidos-3614890/

Impossible to answer, for me, without knowing what it would be about.
If it's something that really interests me I could probably get into it for about the hour, if it's something about which I couldn't give a toss then probably six seconds would be too much.

Mind yerself, Gerry, looks like you're about to have a load of visitors in the night trying to snaffle your pink tube.
So to speak.

Back atcha on the felicitations, Ant.
Yep, like your good self and Tec, I don't believe in loyalty when none is shown the other way. If prices dropped the longer you were with someone then fine, but if they're going to effectively pay me to switch then switch I shall  ;D

It's all a load of old bollards. IF something seems to have an effect (apart from medical 'freezing' of it), it's coincidence.
I used to have one, then suddenly found when on holiday one year, it had gone, just like that with nothing done to it at all...looks like the cure for warts is going to Canada after all.

Technology / Is there any way to upgrade Android operating systems?
« Last post by Duffield1 on 17 January, 2017, 04:30:51 PM »
I have bought a cheap Android tablet (Alcatel OneTouch Evo7) for my 89 year old grandmother, and set it up with software to make it easier for her to use, but want to install some software that will give me remote control to fix problems - but the operating system is 4.0 and it needs 4.1 for the remote control software.

I've googled this and founded a couple of sites that suggest a way of doing it (rom-mod sites), but I'm pretty sure they are dodgy, as the avatars of the people who have commented that they have done it do not match the pics on their Facebook pages, and two sites for two different upgrades have the same names with different photos making the same comments!

Is there any legal way of upgrading the operating system to 4.1?

They're both slimy. They both jump. They both croak. They both hang out around ponds. And they both get eaten by herons.
So what is the difference between frog and toads?
Apart from frogs all coming from France and toads coming from we know not where, aren't frogs and toads really pretty much the same thing - except for their name?
