I received a bottle of Laphroaig, a bottle of Jamesons and a bottle of Tullamore, so I should be okay for a while, (it's a good job I'm normally on the diet) along with 3 boxes of chocolates (tut tut tut)
and the Hairy Bikers Diet Book (now that's what I call balanced)  ;D  (and an M&S voucher)

I have an old HP Photo Scanner, it also does slides and negatives, the only problem is that it's unlikely that you can get updates for Windows 10, but there are scanners still available but they're not cheap.

One of my presents was an Amazon Echo its fantastic once I figure everything out.Got a few things going so far, music, phone calls but there is so much more. I just talk to it and it does it better than a wife ;D Hope she don't read this.  ;D 
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

I recently transferred all my slides onto my PC using a piece of kit ....  ION "SLIDES FOREVER".
Cost about 50 in PC WORLD.
It is "Plug & Play" - no drivers required. Just plug into USB port and away you go
Results were good.
Google it for full info.
