    I love the run away alarm clock. I could really have done with that when my 3 boys were teenagers. Now in their mid 50s they no longer need one. Thanks for the laugh it gave me.

  2. Ray says:

    Good one.
    Love a weekly/monthly notification of this sort of stuff.

  3. Bill Bagley says:

    Hi there, you might remove me from your mailing list please. All this new technological stuff is far too bewildering for me, I’m having enough trouble getting used to this new Windows 10 to last me the rest of my life thanks and no offence intended.
    Cheers from Bill.
