Re: Old Blue February 2009

My eye was caught immediately by the smashing portrait on the cover, of three children by Benedict Rubbra. I flipped immediately to the review of Jenny Pery's book Point of Balance. I must try and get hold of this! The book is "lavishly illustrated". I'd like to see more of his paintings. I like hi...

Re: Letters

I don't think the TV License people have any more right to enter your home against your will than any ordinary citizen. They could apply for a search warrant but they'd have to go to a magistrate for that. Currently one way to watch TV without a license is through the BBC iPlayer (or the ITV equival...

Re: Computer Expert wanted!!

Alan,
I'm certainly not an expert but I know a little about computers (I have some experience of this sort of thing) and will help if I can. If you say what make and model of keyboard you have, I'll see if I can make any useful suggestions.
