I hardly dare to say so, but so far I am managing well on my new computer. The engineer, who has looked after me from the beginning, found an Acer which is an updated model of the one I already had, so it is not all that different. The only difficulty so far is that the keyboard is further over to the left and I keep pressing the wrong keys. Being a shorthand typist in a previous life (very previous) I don't usually look at the keys, but at present I am having to.
Haymaking is on hold as, contrary to the long-range forecast at the weekend, which said it would be fine and sunny until thunder on Friday, today it has become cloudy over the last hour and there have been several heavy showers. Hot sun is forecast for tomorrow, so with a bit of luck the farmer will get it in then before the weather breaks for real on Friday.
Last evening was the second of four classes in 'The Art and Literature of the 1914-18 war.' There are seven of us and we have really interesting and lively discussions. I am enjoying it so much.
As I write this I can hear the farmer in the background, listening to the news. Rockets fall in Gaza, children killed and injured. It is always the innocent who suffer isn't it - just as it was in the Great War . When will they ever learn? The answer, we all know, is never.
I will sign off now and explore a few new channels on my new toy. See you tomorrow.
