Only maincrop spuds will store.

To my knowledge no one variety has a longer storage life than another........the storage life is much more likely to be decided by the storage conditions.

Well done Lesley & Fairy.....more excellent shots, thank you.

I'm pleased to hear your experimenting, Fairy. When I started this thread, I hoped it would encourage photography and if I can be of any help (even in a small way) I'm only too willing to try.

Very good, Lesley.....btw, I looked at the size of my memory cards & most seem to be 8GB, still enough capacity for around 800 pics.

Norwich 4 ... Liverpool 5.

I'm totally drained .... but HAPPY!!

Alcohol needed now.

I watched it live on BT Sport.....9 goals & a great game for the neutral, but oh dear, both teams were dismal.  

Southampton managed a 1-0 win over Man U witch I guess will hasten the departure of Van Gal.

For those who don't seem keen to use their cameras using anything other than 'auto', below are two excellent tutorials to help to venture out into using your camera's potential and getting more enjoyment from it. This is basically explaining how to use your camera using the 'aperture priority' (A or AV) setting....a useful step to using it on 'manual'.

Shame to spend a lot of dosh on a good camera, not to get the best out of it......rather like buying a Ferrari and tootling along at 30 mph in it.
