  1. Not sure if you are serious but just in case you are, this was in an email sent out by United Utilities a few days ago... Please remember to only flush the three Ps – pee, poo and (toilet) paper. Please do not flush kitchen roll, wet wipes or newspaper down the toilet as these can cause major sewer blockages, bin them instead.

  3. Hoards of people in the Peak District today (I wasn't one of them) and a farmer attacked after asking a walker to go home. Unbelievable...😡 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-derbyshire-52034329

  6. Do you really need all those toilet rolls? - The Coronavirus Poop Calculator
  7. 600 free online courses - https://www.classcentral.com/report/new-courses-october-2018/ Dates from October 2018 so some of them might be a bit out of date but there might be something of interest. Me? Started a long-term project to copy slides from way-back with a view to making Audio-Visual slide shows, otherwise they never get seen (quality not good enough for Alamy). Currently working on a trek across Spitsbergen (Svalbard) which I did in 1996. Also copying medium format transparencies with a view to uploading to Alamy. I've already uploaded five as a test - they went straight through via the 5-star route but I asked QC to take a look at them to check if they were good enough before I did any more. They did and said they were fine. I do have access to the 'archival' route but these are just landscapes of no particular historical interest (except to me) so I don't want to abuse the system. Plenty to keep me occupied..!
  8. Ed - I see your 'favourite' hotel chain is in the news again - Brittania Hotels.... Hotel staff sacked and made homeless A reminder - they have been voted the worst hotel chain in the UK for seven years running.
  9. At one time when you filled in a location it automatically threw up Google Maps showing the location but that stopped when Google hiked up the price for access. Maybe this is why it doesn't work anymore. https://gadgets.ndtv.com/apps/features/google-maps-apis-new-pricing-impact-1907242
  10. There are many strains of Coronavirus - if you've ever had a common cold then you have been infected with a Coronavirus...... Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans. Source... https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus
  11. BBC website, 7 March - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-51759563 BHE359 - MARKA / Giulio Andreini - il giardino dei tarocchi or the garden of tarot, garavicchio, capalbio, tuscany, italy
  12. Uploaded a batch of 46 but it stopped twice and I had to restart from where it left off each time, so I ended up with three batches instead of just one. All passed, but then same problems as others have described. Managed to get all the 'optionals' done but it was painful - sometimes had click the 'save' button four or five times before it would actually save the changes. Gave up trying to set the supertags.
