Computer Chaos

If anyone out there has sent me an email in the last 2 weeks, and not had a reply, or only a holding reply, please send it again because I've lost the lot, plus my email contacts - I knew there was something I'd forgotten when reinstalling Windows, and that was what it was - computers seemed like such a good idea at the time; I'm now finding the quill and parchment strangely attractive....

The Old Tower

This was the main entrance to Reeth Lodge, until it was demolished as a dangerous structure - I live in the other half of the house, or part of it; this wing is the older part, which was unfortunately undermined by the landslip in ca. 1995.  Since then, the land has been drained, and rock armour has been installed in Reeth Bay, so it's as safe as ..... a slice of steak in a dog's bowl...

The tower came down a few years ago: what's left is a hole, like a gap in a row of teeth.  But don't talk to me about teeth.  I said - don't talk to me about teeth!
