Hi, Caravaggio. Thank you for your reply. No, I do not have a dongleything. I understand this is for when you are out and about. I haven't yet used the laptop outside the house.
What I do find it handy for is when an urgent call comes from one of my sons to the Bank of Dad, while Mrs P is using the main computer, and does not look kindly upon being disturbed. I can simply log on, part with my hard earned and save myself an ear bashing in the process. It is also useful for checking emails etc from the comfort of my arm chair.
A quiet day here today. Last week saw the arrival of my new car, a Nissan Note Ntec +. It has satnav, Bluetooth and reversing sensors, all as standard. To have these on a Mini, for instance would have added more than £700 to my outlay. It is odd that even after forty nine years of driving, I still get a buzz from anything connected with motor cars. Even as a child I would have preferred to learn to drive than to go to school.
Not much more news, except that we are awaiting the arrival of the latest prize from the Catholic Herald, which I won last week. I think I must spend a small fortune on stamps to send prize crosswords away.
Best wishes for now.
