If I were a representative for Epson, I'd negotiate a "Powered by Epson!" Sponsor deal.


The BBC had a documentary about her some years ago where she had all these pix pinned to walls in her country house in the same collective manner; they were being looked at by a book publisher and resulted in her thick book which, unfortunately, departed quite widely from the direction I thought the docu was suggesting it would go; it ended up as a too personal tome on her family life and her friendship with her late writer friend.

A waste of around a hundred euros, at least, for me.

Win some, lose more. I passed my medical for the driving licence renewal this morning. Another year of the Fiesta, with luck.

Only glitch I see ahead (ever the optimist, despite dark imaging) is that I need a double cataract event, and if nothing gets done before the possible thunderbolt of a bad Brexit, I may find myself a permanent pedestrian after next year. What a thought!

Congrats, Rob!  I need to get a new driving license within the next three years (here in Germany).  Still have my initial one from 1972 and it's still valid.

I even get rental cars using that ancient thing, though not even I recognize myself on the picture.  Sadly, I seem to have lost my stateside licenses over the years.  Still have my US military license, but that would probably be questioned and it's only valid for vans, jeeps, douce-and-a-halves, M113, ...

Before I forget - thanks for the link, 32BT.  I enjoy Annie's photos.  Have her book, American Music, which I enjoy thumbing through.
