I also managed to load up more films on the PMP shop as digital downloads at just £8 each. I have also transferred more of Dave Forrests collection to digital which will make it easier to locate, copy and share etc. We were able to drop off scans to cousin Trish this afternoon with old family tapes on DVD, some jazz got Derek on board with the delivery and a few copies to do now for their friends in the trad jazz world.
I did a bit more work on family history for Mandy's side which goes off on some interesting lines in Lancashire and Cumbria and stretches back over a thousand years. When you look back with such a perspective the French side of the Vikings ( Norsemen-Normans) was actually quite a brief period although they held sway for parts of Europe and Asia Minor the edges of their possessions were always battling at the edges from rival fiefdoms.
Our monthly sacks of pills were picked up after a false start as they hadn't arrived this morning, we collected them on the way back from cousin Trish's in Sale, Manchester. The roads were quiet, I guess there is probably some football on again, we have managed to avoid it so far with deft clicking of the TV controller!
We go down to Hampshire for the family wedding this weekend, we leave Thursday 4am and straight to Bournemouth then either over to Poole or Southampton perhaps even a truck film at the port. Monday we'll pick up some shots on the way home, Monday is also our 47th wedding anniversary.
Here are some shots of Switzerland so you can see what it has had to offer in more recent years.
