Re: Chepstow Drill Hall Concert - 26 April

Hi Steve... Looks like , by coincidence, you and I were at the same GG concert in Cheltenham - in 1989? (it was my home for some 47 years, and then 12 years in the FOD).. It was held in an anti-room. And like you - I was introduced to GG music thru 'Fear of the Dark', 'Perilous Journey'...... and 'P...

Music includes opera too...

Opera tends to generate a wide range of extreme conflicting opinions.... but I'm going out on a limb to 'put the case for the defense' so to speak.... I've been so fortunate to be, by osmosis, or to make myself exposed to a wide range of music and the arts over the last 50 years or so.... You will k...

Re: Anyone with an interest in travel keen on exchanging experiences/ideas etc etc ??? A keen on discussing travel ???

Sue... thanks for the headsup on googlephotos replacing Picasa..... As mine is already setup and we don't have any interest in expanding our tech kit (we have one basic mobile, we don't need or use phone or other apps), and it works very well for me, I'm sticking with Picasa.....
