I like the idea of the stationary bike that can power the computer.. although I think it should have a connection or battery so you can still surf when you're tired haha
EDIT: seriously.. I would buy one of those! specially cuz im the kind of person that hardly have time for anything while I'm into the university semester.. exercise is not the exception..
techgranny, Prague is hopping and an absolute "must see" place. I went there a lot in the 60's for business and in fact got stuck there in 1968 when the Russians invaded the place. Was stuck in the Hotel Alcron (Shirley Temple was there too and SCARED). But I had been thru the war, so the constant shooting did not affect me too much. Another hopping place is Budapest. Both would not be too far from London to make the detour.
whs, you've either led the most ridiculously fascinating life or you're just showing off:) I hope you at least got a picture or something with Mrs. Black. She is a treasure!
I think I misrepresented myself. I'm only at the All England Club in spirit. (on tv) Once a year I hold-up in my "woman cave" for the Wimbledon fortnight and if no one has died and nothing is on fire, I'm to be left to my own devices:)
P.S. Now you have me intrigued about Budapest. I don't know much about that city but I'm compelled to learn!
techgranny, I believe my life was interesting - and still is. I spent about 30 years in foreign countries, had to move my household 24 times. If I had to do it again, I would not want to do it any differently. I have some pictures from Prague during the invasion. Have to find them and scan them in. Here is some info about Budapest http://www.hungarytourism.hu/main.php?folderID=853
techgranny, just for you I have unpacked my scanner that was ready to be shipped to Brother. It is one of those multifunction (print, scan, copy, fax, tel, etc.) machines and the fax does not work. So it has to go back to them. Well, in any case, I rewired the whole thing. Then I traipsed into the basement to find the shoeboxes with the pictures. A couple of hours later I found a few of the Prague pics which you can see on the link below. On the last picture with the 5 guys I am the second from the right (were we not handsome in 68?).
On Budapest you are probably right when judging from the pictures only. But Budapest is more lively than Prague. The Hungarians are real fun people.
PS. If you click on the pictures in photobucket, they enlarge - you can click twice to get them to max. size.
