All charges against Ralph Blewitt have been dropped

Deweaponised road warrior in need of new computer!

Last night we had a death in the family of this website (I would have said website with an apostrophe s but for reasons that will become obvious my communicative abilities are somewhat compromised).


That is the now deceased 4 year old (about 105 inhuman years) machine that has brought us all millions of words, videos and pictures.

i am sorry that she is upside down - I have purchased an iPad today so as to have some ability to post stuff, but using it involves pecking with two fingers, each like a chook.

Manipulating photos is currently beyond us - as is sustaining the patience with this little device for more than a few frustrating moments!

to do what we need to do I will have to replace “old glory” the dead MacBook.

will you help?

thank you
