And, finally, I think Jazz was played here



Twenty five years ago! 88 sounds sort of recent to me.

Stamps on documents were (and in some cases still are) used to verify the content, usually by a signature across the stamp or stamps. Often used in receipts, contracts, and, at one time, on births, deaths, and marriage certificates.

I'm puzzled-where the latest photos from Ed O'Donnell should be I'm seeing an empty frame telling me in several languages that these photos cannot be viewed at present, but I've been told by another user that he has viewed them. Have I got a gremlin and if so does anyone know how to get rid of it?

I can solve your puzzle.

No it's not a gremlin at your end, and yes you could previously see them.

I spent 'a lot' of time and effort uploading and transferring these images. And then same again adding titles and uploading to SL.

Many of the older ones are still up there.

Having investigated what happened, the most recent set put me over my 'bandwidth' and got deleted (or £20 charge to me).

Please bear with me. To remedy this will involve some more time I can't really justify at the moment.

[edit ps]
on the last visible pic, a chap is peeping over the piano float. There was some mention that this was "Henry Moore". It is, but Henry Moore the drummer not the sculptor.

Many thanks-glad to know that for once it's not me or my computer being a bit slow. We all enjoy the photos, thanks for giving so much time. I have a few photos I could add but when I click on Add attachment there's no response-can someone solve this one for me too? regards vjs
