Well Hi you guys, Fiona, Chris & my ol' mate Dave, also not fogetting all you folk out in the ether - cant see ya, it's kinda misty out there - I guess you'r there cos I can feel your presence so hi! from Bonnie Scotland on a beautiful bright Saturday morning 30 miles east of Edinburgh -  seems I got the timing wrong - again. Certain it said 08:00 GMT maybe that was yesterday and not today Saturday - well it's certainly not today cos I can see you three via U-Tube.

What magic is woven in the ether, don't you think its quite amazing when you actually sit back and look at this thing.

A few years ago - say thirty yrears - golly say that quickly cos its kind of scary ain't it, well as I was saying 30 years ago it was pen and paper well in my case it was typewriter and 5"x3"cards - thousands of 'em,

I had collected 15 shoeboxes of cards on a Satuday they'd be spread all over the kitchen table, my wife used to chide me, she needed the table to prepare meals, but this is important I'd say, so one day I bought into these new fangled thing computers.

I got an Amstrad 6128 with a Green screen monitor and a drive that took 3" diskettes that held 64Kbytes each side, and two programs a word processor that wrote in CPM I think and John Campbells 'Masterfile 128' took me ages to work out how the darned thing worked but when I did there was no stopping me

I found a 'slubber' here ie. one who prepared cotton for spinning - removed the 'slubs' or imperfections in the yarn.
