Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Not stated that Laura did Facetime on the computer, "She used the FM3 to do an assessment for a job in Perth". I'll lay odds that Facetime was via an I phone or tablet. :extrawink:

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

FaceTime is great fun. ( I recall suggesting it to you when your daughter was ill...but you said you preferred WhatsAp at the time). I FaceTime my son a lot.
Facetime is predominantly an application for Apple devices and runs on IOS.

I think we are both going daft!

Pictures to prove it as well. Here is Sally at Châteaux...

My Motorola phone uses both the U.S. GPS satellites and the Russian GLONASS network. Each maintain 24 satellites in orbit so that's 48 to go at. My Geocaching app sometimes can see 18 + satellites and has better than 1m accuracy. Both Russia and the US ceased degrading the accuracy or at least relax...

There should be a lot more public drinking fountains and bottled water should be banned. Everyone has access to a tap! Rome has thousands of public drinking spots, anywhere there is a water supply there is generally an accessible supply.
