I have calculated a complete set of solutions to the Wordle daily

internet puzzle, and I've drawn them up into a graphical table contained

here. All the possible puzzle solutions are included and in each

case my table could be used to get an answer to today's puzzle if

you are so inclined. If you do this you will always get the

answer in no more than 5 guesses, but usually 3 or 4.

Scotland has long held a fascination for both of us.

We spent our first ever holiday together there in 1977, travelling

up in an old Mini 850 John borrowed especially for the occasion

from his uncle George. Then later for many years we owned a time-

share on the shore of Loch Rannoch and enjoyed many summer holidays

in and around it. John particularly always hankered to go back there in the

winter time as it was obvious the scenery and the weather would be very different.

When he retired we made it one of our objectives to actually go and do just that

so, in late January, we set off on a trip to stay at a small cottage we rented

near the Kyle of Lochalsh. The weather was kind to us, cold but dry and

bright most days. Here are some photos from that trip and from our

weekend stay with our friends Rob and Jacqui just outside Lincoln

on the way back (by which time the weather had taken a turn

for the worse). It's a 588 mile trip to the Kyle from

where we live so the break in the journey was

especially welcome in view of the weather.


Here are stored some photographs of the Farewell dinner

held in 2013 for one of FrancEs' work colleagues, Lind Page.


Chris Fisher's Retirement Party - 24th February 2011. Friends and colleagues gathered

together to wish Chris a fond farewell and a happy retirement in a most unique setting.

Chris is a steam railway enthusiast and what better way to send her off in style than to

have a party in a private coach on the North Norfolk Steam Railway, better known as the

Poppy Line. It goes between Sheringham to Holt and we had lunch on board, courtesy of

her friends. Chris even went on to the footplate and drove engine number 5619. It

was a most memorable day helped all the more with a beautiful sunny sky.


We spent June 12th-14th diving out of Lulworth Cove in Dorset.

This was done not with our own diving club, Sunstar Sub-Aqua, but by

joining as guests the members of Ipswich Sub Aqua Club on their annual

pilgrimage to Lulworth. We had a very good time both diving and socialising

with ISAC and were made very welcome. We both hope to dive again with

them during some future Sunstar and ISAC dive trips. The weather

was not kind for the trip, but even so we managed 4 dives in

the 3 days, and on the last dive we took a camera along

and took these few shots.
