David, I cant help as I  we both always use a mac for photos and videos. I find iphoto brilliant. We dont do a lot of manipulation, other than cropping, red eye removal. etc, . I think it spoils things when something has been obviously photoshopped . It becomes art instead of photography.

On our last liveaboard trip to papua new guinea, there was a photo comp on the boat on each trip. We had done three back to back. My OH won the first one on the Great Barrier Reef, won the one around new Britain (Kavieng) and then when presented for the final one , there was a great clapping of hands for his, and the winner was.... an american. There was a stony silence. I was waiting to someone to pipe up that a mistake had been made, but no the free bottle of wine went to an american dentist.  Some privately told OH he had been robbed, but I suspect it had more to do with the size of the tips expected from the  group of californian dentists.

Stella is self fertile and available either  as maidens to train yourself, or ready fan trained to put against a wall.  I have one but the blackbirds get them before I do. If you had it against a wall you would be able to net it.

Well, that must set a record. Supermarket done, garden centre visited, Polytunnel  bought, had a coffee and a ake. polytunnel erected, cover on,  bricks around base and filled up with plants. More cake and coffee. and its only 4pm.

Glad the seeds arrived , Panda. If the soil is clear, you can scatter away and the showers will water it in.
