I don't know if I will get away with posting this non-computer related item but as you are all such a friendly helpful lot and it is Christmas -- here goes.
Did you know that Meals On Wheels does not operate on Xmas/Boxing day? I didn't. Our local radio (Derby) is recruiting people who are willing to make one extra meal each day and nip it round to someone who lives close by. There is obviously very little extra time or preperation involved in doing this and I think it is a great idea.
With or without radio support or involvement I am sure that close to you there will be someone who would be grateful for a nice meal or two over Xmas.
