  4. Take a look at the Images sold and Have you found any Alamy images threads. They will give you some idea of what sells. Alamy is a UK centred company so inevitably a lot of the sales relate to UK subject matter, but there are offices and agents elsewhere, and photos from around the world do sell. Alamy suggests that you shoot locally, as you should have a knowledge of your own territory. Also exploit any specialist knowledge or access to subject matter, maybe through work, family or a hobby that you might have. As has been suggested above, comprehensive and accurate ke

  6. I've been kept for over 50 years so hoping the arrangement might continue ! How otherwise would I get my hair cut ? Our courtship was interrupted by our going to separate Unis, but survived. It involved a lot of hitch hiking. I shared a house for a while with a work colleague and we would each cook Sunday's dinner on alternative weeks, so I started married life with more practical cooking experience than my wife, but she took over when I worked full time and she was looking after the kids. Good to hear that your son is going to cook for you, our sons are also into cookery it's wha

  8. That's a sad story Betty, but I'm sure you make world class brownies now ! Re kitchen cleanliness I'm normally the washer up, a job I quite enjoy, so no problems with dirty pans etc. I don't cook much but I am called upon to make fish pie, Spanish tortillas, salad dressing, and, my favourite, onion gravy. Our old but reliable cooker doesn't have a fan oven, and tends to burn things at the edges, so not the best for pizzas or bread, otherwise we'd make that kind of stuff. One of the guys we share our allotment with makes fabulous focaccia bread with olives and rosemary,
  9. Herself being away looking after the grandbairns, I was able to experiment in the kitchen. Old Billy from our allotments had given me instructions on how to cook Yorkshire puddings, so I thought I would give it a try. The oil must be smoking hot Billy said, so hot it was. Made 4, ate 2 and then returned for afters, all gone. Very nice. I find it difficult to judge quantities when cooking for myself, and would rapidly become overweight were it to continue for any length of time.....

  11. I've been using the % search for many moons but never thought of leaving a space ! Obvious when you think about it, but it had eluded me. Thanks Wim !
  12. We've had this discussion before, and views are mixed. Many readers want to see the pictures, but quite a few contributors want to know about the hits, but don't want their photos displayed here - successful ideas can be and are stolen. I have decided to only show pics if :- A They are particularly interesting and B Because of the unique circumstances of the shoot, they are very unlikely to be copied. You can't please all of the people all of the time 🙃
  13. We were told to leave the foot and needle down and the lever above up. As I understand it, this takes stress off a spring and avoids de-threading the needle. My wife just told me that the chap who did the work was 73 years old with no intention of retiring.

  15. My wife's elderly but normally reliable sewing machine started to act up. I was summoned to fix it. In the past I've removed debris, applied a few drops of oil and all has been well, but not on this occasion. It all looked Ok but it didn't work properly. She was able to contact a local repair man, who came to the house this afternoon. This guy was a magician, he gave the machine a full service and replaced parts that he reckoned were too worn to be of further use. They looked fine to me, but not to him. He was right of course and the machine is now running, well, like a sewing mac
