FOOTNOTES: I have to admit that I am a technophobe. This is not the excuse of someone too lazy to learn new technology, it has been a life-long problem. When I was an 11 year old, my father was horrified to find me using one of his precious honed chisels as a screw- driver. To a man who had used and understood tools all his life, I was a bitter disappointment. I have to say he got over it, and was sitting in the stalls at my West End debut, finally realising I could do other things. However, I was left with this disjointedness when confronted with any form of machinery. Later this applied to computers, but I managed to overcome this, and although never an expert, I have come to rely on my mobile phone, etc. Which brings me to this weeks mini- drama. I had a very elderly printer attached to my lap top, which, when asked to perform normal printing duties, would behave like a bad-tempered pensioner, screwing up the paper, jamming the paper, leaving huge ink smears over the copies it did reluctantly produce. So, I sallied forth to my local computer supplies to purchase a new printer. The man in charge of the shop, then began to speak in a foreign language, or what seemed to be a foreign language to me, but was in fact computer-speak. I grasped some of it and was assured that the printer I was about to purchase contained a full set of instructions. Once home, with great trepidation, I got the thing out of its box, discarded the enormous amount of packing, found an instruction in English, there was five in all, (one in Serbio- Croat, would you believe). One hour later, it was up and working perfectly. Much to my surprise and relief. I must be getting better as I have got older. Father would be proud.

Enjoy your week, and this summer, such as it is, and whatever God you believe in keep you safe.
