At last I think I've sorted all my computer problems - fingers crossed this is the end of them for a while!

I've had some of these old photo images for some time now and never got around to using them so today I have been busy using three of them which I am hoping to post tonight.

I'm not sure now where I got these images from - obviously I over estimated the power of my memory!
