Picture itself is far from special. IMHO. But like a lot of things - rarity makes it better

After not being used for a fortnight my drone decided that it would only turn right. In fact turning right was all it was prepared to do, apart from up and down, and the down part was a sudden thump into the ground on 'auto land'. It's rather erratic, or should that be eccentric ?

Had an email of a cousin in Canada who complained about the cold. Check the BBC forecast for North America and they have Ottawa and Winnipeg with a temperature of 0' degrees Fahrenheit!  :o :o :o

My own stupidity and assumptions about how the world works - specifically in relation to camera batteries. I took my TG-4 out with me this morning on the school run, thinking to get some shots of the river in flood as the light came up.

But the camera wouldn't turn on. Flat battery I assumed and replaced the dead battery with the spare, making sure in the gloom that I fitted it the same way as the one that I had just removed. Camera as lifeless as a not at all alive thing. Gave up. When I got home, and into some light, I discovered that the batteries for the TG-4 will fit into the camera either way around, and the wrong way was the way that the first battery had been put in. All my other cameras, and just about everything else I can think of that uses proprietary batteries has them handed, so they can only go in one way.

Live and learn I suppose.  :o

That does sound like unusual H.

I can't charge my batteries at the moment because I have lost my charger. Who loses a battery charger??
I'm blaming the kids!
May the Force be with you.
