One of our regular volunteers at the archives, a retired headmaster, did not come in last week. He had heart problems over the weekend and was in hospital for half a week.

At the start of this week we were visited by a former staff member of the School of Ministry and his wife. They are Australians and had retired there. She had been a volunteer for the Archives and coming down the stairs again she felt that she was coming in for a day’s work.

I have had a second attempt at getting my pda working again. I put it aside for a week and let it power down. Now I have restored it, although there is some features that are not working, and some files that haven’t loaded. Never mind. I can start using it again.
