This the the damage caused to the aluminium case of my brand new
Macbook - it's 3cm x 3cm. I had the remote of our DVR stood on it for
about half an hour. The remote was working, batteries were in date.
Apparently alkaline batteries (not just Kodak) are prone to leaking Potassium hydroxide.
Unfortunately this eats aluminium - hate to think what it would do to
Contacting Kodak is proving nigh impossible

On the 3rd Sept a group of members joined forces with March, Wisbech & Murrow art societies for a visit to the SAA head office in Newark. We had a very informative day and got to try out a range of their products - a good time was had by all.
Thanks to Ann Dring for organising things our end and the SAA staff - Gemma who organises these visits, Richard who told us all about the SAA and showed us round the warehouse & Anita who demonstrated the products - plus all the other staff we met who were so welcoming.

I made the brim a bit stiffer with this one - the blue one tends to flip down in front of my eyes.
Now I've got to address the problem of it blowing away in the wind - maybe a chin strap !!

Just had the joys of having a mole removed from my nose - fortunately it was only a mole, nothing nasty, so now it's just a matter of waiting for the scar to heal. I've been told to keep it out of the sun - difficult in this weather. It's far too hot for a hat so I've made myself a sun visor.
