    and I'll second (or third?) that. Take care. I've been both mum and daughter in this scenario. There are no easy answers. Mashie , that book sounds like an interesting resource.

      Snowflake Thanks for the tip Whisks. I had five but they all vanished before I saw even one. I tried all notifications but it wouldn't bring up anything. Using Chrome. Maybe I'll try another more cloud friendly browser.

      Caducean Whisks Snowy, if you have several notifications and look at one, use the BACK button on your BROWSER to see others before you press any other key. It's a pain, I know. You can also do 'All Notifications' but it stalls for me.

    This takes me back. My father used to work for a company that built cranes. I spent my childhood visiting the factory and then into my teens there were summer jobs in the office making copies of blueprints (when they actually were blue). A lovely ...

    In a similar vein , try this site https://historic-hospitals.com/gazetteer/aberdeenshire/ Where I live the old hospital has been turned into flats (quite expensive ones I would imagine).

    Snowflake BBC Future has just shown me a vending machine that dispenses, alcohol, ammunition and marijuana. Is this what is wrong with the world?

    Google earth might be a way of finding possible locations, though I'm not sure how you would know if they were vacant. Street view might give clues such as estate agents signs or whitewashed windows. Would this website be of any use? ...

    I'd like to second Tom Waits. I love Tom Waits. Telephone call from Istanbul - GENIUS. Maybe next year. Also, if we're looking at singer songwriters for their poetry, how about Leonard Cohen?

    Thanks :) Somewhere in the universe and beyond and along the space-time continuum, it's always someone's birthday. The Cloud is stratospheric, after all.

    So you're an ex-illustrator? Explains Shaun Tan! If I am captured by his book, I'll keep an eye out for the film you mentioned.

    I see you like Shaun Tan. I've just got a copy of The Arrival - yet to read/browse, but it looks intriguing!
