An Expensive Repair

Recently I had new heela put on an ancient but much loved pair of shoes. The repair cost £19-95. I can remember when new heels cost five shillings!

Exploring Zoom

I've just found out how to use the Zoom whiteboard. It's quite a simple thing, allowing one to make freehand drawings, create a few standard shapes, enter text from the keyboard, and perform a few simple manipulations of whatever is on the screen, but it could still be useful.

Any reader who'd like to explore in my company should send me an email and I'll do my best to oblige.
