Time on your hands? Try this…

They say, if you can write, you can draw. If you believe that, try drawing a portrait and submit it here. This exhibition aims to have the largest presentation of faces in the world.

If you are feeling too lazy to type your emails, try Springdoo and send a talking email. Our friend H successfully tested this and we were able to listen to him speak. A great way to treasure a loved one’s voice for posterity. If you have a microphone, start recording!

H also introduced us to Limewire, a fantastic open source software that allows you to browse and download anything under the sun. If you have something to share with the world, this is an easy way to do it. You can download music, movies, even software. It’s easy to work with and the search tools/Browse host option lets you find more than you bargained for.

Our phonecalls to H&F are relegated to the PC. Now that we’ve discovered Skype,we use the laptop to have conversations. This morning, we had a conference call between us, H in Shropshire and F, who is visiting her parents in Spain. What fun.

H&F spent last night with us before F’s flight from Luton. We drove into London and spent time in Chappell’s and in the fantasticly-buzzing-with-energy Apple store on Bond Street.

Back home, we were treated to tango lessons from H&F who have been going to classes themselves. Mr R and F entertained us with violin-piano duets and we ended the night with a yummy prawn curry.
