    Have heard about such drownings from the swift run-in tides, Dawn. It must come in really fast to catch fishers out like that. Unfortunately, fishing all over the world is a dangerous occupation, I'm afraid. 

    Lucky you, Dawn.  :yes:  :D  My camera doesn't shoot in RAW mode although I have found out the cheaper S9200 does!!! Boo hiss. Never mind, maybe the next one??? Think a new computer will make a huge difference with your speed. You won't know yourself. Will you get one with a touch screen monitor? They are great, especially when choosing which pics to load, etc. Your wonderful pics are even more precious knowing now how long it takes for you to upload them.  :good:

    Hi Joy :) we went into a PC store here not too long ago and told the salesman our needs. The computer would be mostly catering to my needs with the photos as John doesn't use it much for anything else anymore except FB and a few personal things now his job has changed slightly in nature. We got some specs and gave them to some family members and they gave us their ideas as feedback but really still not very sure of what to get actually. We don't want to spend loads of money on a computer  or a monitor with features we will never use,  it is sad to say this but I will never move on the advice of a Salesperson alone. I am wanting a monitor that is conducive to photos as well. so it is nice to know about the touch screen feature re: photos . : ) thks xx

    Hi Dawn.  :wave: Agree with you re not wanting to take the advice of a salesperson about what PC will suit your needs. At least for us not having to go to a store to buy a PC is very handy as ours can be custom-made by our in-house techie.  :lol2: 

    Bruce says that storage is the key, plenty of RAM & plenty of speed in the CPU. Mine has 6GBs of RAM & 3.3GHz CPU which are great for my pics & videos. An LED monitor is fantastic for colour &, unfortunately, we thought my touch screen was LED but it's LCD with LED backlighting. The same with my new Toshiba laptop.  :grr: 

    All the best on your PC hunt.  :good:

    Just some flower photos of flowers in my garden and some I received as birthday presents.

    Camellias in the gardens that run along what is called "the coastal walk" below the Leas.

    Some Scented Viola I planted in a two tiered container, to brighten up the back area. The bottom has some trusty nasturtium which is in flower now.

    Some white tulips I picked up at the local convenience store, and put them into a vase. Wrong shape for tulips but not all had been unpacked so I used what was available.

    some beautiful flowers I received from my friend who lives in Paris, it was a lovely surprise they came in the post !! in  a huge box , and I was amazed at  how fresh they were. they lasted almost two weeks from then on, I still can't believed how well they travelled.

    The fragrance that greeted me when I walked into the living room every morning was beautiful, which came mostly from the lillies.  :love:

    We don't eat out often, as it is too expensive,  but one day we had to go to the Blue Water Shopping centre which is a couple of hours from here and we were there at lunch time. We love this food chain it is Vietnamese or Japanese food ? something like that. Anyhow these photos will bring up the posts if nothing else :)
