Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Paulette is trying to convince me I'd benefit from owning a Kindle, apparently I have too many books. Do any of you good people use one? I've been having a look and they look to be around £120 to buy, I've then noticed there's an Amazon subscription of £7.99 a month as well as 'e-books' to buy as a ...

Tim was a year older than me, I'm nearly 60. He had no underlying conditions but the virus hit him hard. He'd been in intensive care for nearly a month and his daughters were told to come in and say goodbye. The following day there were signs of improvement and one of the new antibiotics appeared to...

The jabs appear to be going well in Pendle, the question was asked, on Facebook, how well and this was the response. He probably has access to slightly more information than us meer mortals :-) Hopefully Colin should be offered one fairly soon.

Britain's oldest horse drawn canal boat has had to shutdown and retire the horses. Apparently the owner was being harassed by 'snowflakes' accusing her of animal cruelty by making her horse pull the boat.
