    For those of us with diminishing eyesight - did you know that if you press the 'ctrl' button on your keyboard and scroll the wheel on your mouse the print font gets bigger - or smaller if you go the wrong way?
    (Thanks to 'Tracker' on another forum)

    Its a good tip. My eyes are getting worse. I need bright light and even then my arms are not long enough to enable me to bring the date in focus on my watch:Eeek:

    I can't bring my self to wear a pair of those reading glasses from Boots just yet.

    Hi

    That does not work on my old ancient PC:Sad::Sad::Sad:

    Also does anyone feel that their eyesight has gotten worse by using computers???

    Regards Pat

    Hi David and Brenda

    I don't know about everybody else, but we had a good day yesterday, everything was in the warm and undercover, which compares VERY favourably with a few shows we went to last year which were flooded out!

    OK there was not a lot there, but we had a great day out with good company - what more can you ask for??? :thumb::thumb:

    Ginny and Mike
