Sweet Strawberries

I rarely buy strawberries, except occasionally as decoration for a trifle, but recently I did buy some, hoping they were locally grown. I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of the hard, sour, although decorative, fruit I'd become resigned to, these were sweet and tender.

Out and About

For more than a year I have restricted myself to just two shopping expeditions per week. I've now increased that to three, hoping that more exercise will help to control my weight.

More Praise for Zoom

On Tuesday the U3A's monthly meeting was held on Zoom. The speaker was a photographer displaying a collection of splendid photographs taken all over the world. In normal times we'd have met in a church hall and seen the pictures projcted on a screen of which only a few members of the audience would have had a clear uninterrupted view, and even those few would have seen only a rather poor rendering of the pictures. Using Zoom we could see bright high resolution pictures. We could also adjust the sound level until the speaker was clearly audible without deafening us.

I shall be very sad if we ever resume physicsl meetings

Summer Clothes

Today, for the first time this year, I went shopping in my white Summer suit and Summer hat. Nothing remarkable happened during my excursion, but I still think it worth mentioning.

Shopping in the Sunshine

Today I wore my summer hat to go shopping, the first time I'd worn it this year. I also dispensed with a tie, but still felt a little hot. I may soon consider wearing my white summer suit.
