Snow in Oxford

Today was my mother, Marlene's 72nd birthday (she in Harare) and Julie & Ed sent a photo of snow on their car in Oxford the same day Rob Ellis sent other photos of snow in Derby, UK. The picture sending to and fro reminds me of my neighbour in 1979 (Keith Taylor, no relative) who working for the then PTC in Salisbury, excitedly telling me of the great hullabaloo they had when they started receiving pictures for the newspaper by telephone line ... grainy black and white photos that took all night to download! Toay we snap, zip, and upload from our cameras or phones just like we've always done this!
