How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Kindle / Amazon: Thanks for all the replies (nearly 30) that I received on the subject of getting a new Kindle from Amazon. I normally reply individually but I am sure that you will excuse me on this occasion. As of yet I have not decided which way to jump, but your advice has been very helpful.
Now I know so many of you are glued to your Kindles I hope you have all read my three books, available from Amazon, that is LEAVING ENGLAND (running a B & B in a quaint old Cornish town) and A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND (a Northampton post-war childhood) and of course my novel NOT JOINED UP (surviving retirement on the Costa del Sol). Please note that the layout on A Girl’s Best Friend is awful, this is not my fault but my publishers).
