Hmm, not on this laptop - it seems that I got trial versions of several things - uploading new camera software seems to have triggered stuff to run out

Right, found out how to get them from here to there, and vice versa.  Now it appears that my free trial of Adobe Photoshop has expired   Shall I buy it online?  Is there something else better/cheaper or shall I just go for it?

I was going to upload a picture of our lunch, but it's complicated - whereas I used to find the pics in Pictures in the Library - now they're in My Finepix Studio!  How do I get them out of there onto here?

No we don't have a regular recipe thread here but occasional recipes do occur.  

There's always here which grew out of the old BBC Food forum.  There are regulars on there who smoke their own hams etc - everyone is very friendly and helpful

I'm afraid that one of the reasons that supermarket jam and preserves won't keep like they used to is that the Health Lobby has encouraged the reduction in sugar and salt levels in foodstuffs, even those foodstuffs where the sugar or salt was the preservativie.

That's why all bought jams, preserves etc will tell you to keep them in the fridge
