Lamentations – Urgent Message, Temporary Shut Down!

To all my Jazz Friends – it seems I will have to sign off until my new laptop is set up – I’m hoping sometime this week. Reason being, my “temporary fix’ (old caput laptop linked to my wife Ginny’s computer) is no longer working efficiently, overheating due to the high temperatures, and is far too slow in producing YouTubes from my MP4 files. Frustrating and such a pity because I filmed so many wonderful sessions at Fest Jazz end of July and at Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle before that. Sincere apologies – I hope to be up and running again by the end of this week. What’s that saying about the heart growing fonder?
