Hi Viv, have to say many fashions keep me amused.
Currently the hilarious hair styles sported by men and the trend for young women dressed in their finery with huge great boots on their feet. Would be interesting to see how they feel in twenty years time.:D:D
NoddKD. Easily amused.
OK everybody,we can all stand down from this one. It appears that some time ago when I purchased a new tablet I was invited to fill in a warranty form online. The cable is my 'reward' for so doing.
Thanks to all that answered. Panic over.:grinning:
NoddKD. Calm once more.
Today a package arrived from China containing High quality cable for USB Type C.
I have not ordered it,there is no invoice and the sender's address is in Chinese.

An interesting point in this thread is that this brave soldiers body was brought home for burial. I had always believed that until very recently burial was at ,or very near the place they fell.
Lest we forget. RIP soldier,duty done.
As children we were taken to the barbers in Ladywood Rd ,opposite Chamberlain Gardens. He always threatens to cut off our heads and replace them with cabbages. I do occasionally feel that he did just that.:D:D
NoddKD. He with the green head.
