That was great, Ray, thanks. And just in case anyone needs another light hearted moment, here's a link to Zorba's Egyptian table cloth, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDEEX_9LSuI Some of you will have seen it before, there was a link to it elsewhere a year or two ago, but it still makes me laugh.

I never met Paul, we live in different countries, I’ve never seen a photo of him, or spoken to him on the phone and yet, he had a little space in my life – a space which is now empty. How much more so for those who knew him well. My deepest sympathy goes out to his friends and family at this terribl...

I use an iron cleaner stick for cleaning both a steam and a flat iron. The one I have has long lost its label, but googling "iron cleaner stick" will bring up one made by Vilene, which is available from Amazon (I thought they sold books!). I think that last time I bought one (in the UK) it...

I'm a great fan of The man in Seat 61 and, since finding him have done some very enjoyable long distance rail journeys across Europe and, recently, across the Straits of Gibraltar and on to Fes. Not to mention all the ones I've done "in my dreams" while perusing the web page. It all takes ...

Another excellent photo. Whatever this plant is, it is photogenic! However, I'm afraid I still don't know what it is. My best guess is that it is a member of the Umbelliferae family. These come in a huge range of sizes and can be quite difficult to identify. A small delicate version can be seen here...

Agapanthus is possible, but the dried flower head looks, to me, as if there were many tiny florets off each radiating stem. Is the flower head spherical or flatish? If the latter, I would like to suggest its a member of the Umbelliferae family, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umbelliferae . Another pos...

Excellent photos Filippos. It's always a pleasure to look at photos of life in Kalyves, especially stuck here in UK on a particularly cold April day. I think your purple flower is a Livingston Daisy or Mesembryanthemum. They have naturalised on a lot of cliffs in Cornwall, where they are much dislik...

Kathywil, I do hope you didn't have a third incident yesterday along the lines of "...... returned home, found house broken into, phoned police. Was told that they didn't have the resources to come out to non-violent break-ins". My student son had his wallet snatched the other day, while b...

email privacy

I do some voluntary work for an arts organisation and have just been told that I am going to be trained in a new system for sending out marketing emails. My informant was very enthusiastic, telling me that the new system would tell us which recipients had actually opened their emails, thus allowing ...

MAC and PC

I wonder if one of you can help me. I need to send some photos of art work to an exhibition organiser. Unusually, this organiser states "MAC compatible only" in the rules for digital images. I process all my photos on a PC, using Photoshop, producing jpegs. Will these be MAC compatible or ...
