Beatles Celebrate National Pan Day

What a coincidence! National Pan Day falls on my birthday this year. I didnt get any pans but some nice cards and presents including a new memory card which i can't seem to upload from for some reason? I'll have to take it too the photography shop in town and get it sorted. I pushed the little tab too but nothing seems to happen. Maybe I needed to format it first. Now they tell me! I took 30+ photos too yesterday on my birthday in Manchester looking around the degree shows with Hazel and Archie ( who got the day off school for educational research) . It was very hot traipsing round all the shows but we managed to see most things. Interactive Arts was by far the most interesting and it was nice to put faces to those names that Hazel has mentioned over the last few months. Archie was particularly wanting to see the animation department show reel but it was very disapointing and hardly any animation on it atall! His favourite was some flash animation a girl in Interactive Arts had made using some very catchy brit-pop type soundtracks by local Manchester bands I think ( and one from Bali!).
Had a nice pizza and salad in the canteen for lunch and traipsed some more. It was nice to get home to our lovely cool house and collapse.

Angelica just beat you to it Roger but appreciate the thought.
Archie is just home from school and his friend James is here to play on the PS2 for a an hour or so until tea time.
Hazel is having dull meetings at college where they sit around and argue for hours and not much gets sorted out.
I asked the chap at the photo shop about the memory card and he couldn't understand why it wouldn't upload my photos if I could see them on the camera screen. Doh! I will have to take it in and get them to print off the photos before I can delete them and hopefully it will work after I have "whatever that word is" them. I can't be bothered to go upstairs and look through the manual again to find out!

National Pan Day was very quiet down here in our neck of the woods.
One or two saucepans hung in the privet bushes and a chestnut roasting pan on the hill watch - but that was about it. I think they make much more of it up north.

You'll have to remind me why July 15th is so special Roger 'cos I've forgotten and not mentioned on my calender?
Thanks for Birdbath wishes Jonathan and Sylvia. WE look forward to your holiday write-up and the photos.
