You would not believe the time and effort it has taken me to get that 7 second video up on the previous post.
Thanks for the suggestion, Furtheron. It seems lots of people were having the COM surrogate and Runtdl (or something) errors way back in January 2007 with Vista. Whatever it is and does, it means I can't upload videos at the moment. I had to resort to saving the film onto a stick, taking that upstairs to Younger Son's room and using his (my old) computer to upload it. And was it worth it? Well, I think it's quite fun. For 7 seconds.

Last Saturday Tim, a friend, said to Husband, 'I hear Elder Son's coming down next weekend.'
'Is he?' said Husband.
On Sunday, Carol said to me, 'Elder Son's down next weekend, isn't he?'
'Is he?' I said,
Elder son and Carol's son are best friends and were in Birmingham university together. If I ever wanted to know what Elder Son was doing, I'd ask Carol. Her son communicated with her.
So, yes, Elder Son and Daughter-in-law are down, although we're not seeing much of them as it's more of a friends' gathering than them coming down to see the parents. But they're having lunch with us tomorrow before they go back to London.
I decided I'd make a lasagne today ready so I can just pop it in the oven when I get back from church tomorrow. In Sainsburys I mentally checked off my list: mince, vegetables, cheese, Dolmio extra spicy sauce. Yes, I had everything I needed. Have you spotted my mistake yet?
My sauce was merrily bubbling on the stove when it struck me.
Lasagne usually works better when it has pasta sheets in it.
