    Hi Derek05, thanks, yes it's certainly been a profession that's evolved, I’ve seen so many changes since the mid sixties, as colour TVs became slimmer in the seventies and eighties we amused ourselves with thoughts that soon we’d be able to hang them on a wall, as computers arrived we thought that one day we’d be talking to them, giving them names, asking questions and commanding them to do menial tasks, the popular TV series ’The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ had their agents communicating through video wrist watches. I guess it’s all happened just as we imagined. I wonder what the next 50 years will bring. Stay safe everyone.

    Hi Derek05, The north east is on our bucket list, maybe if we can't go to Malta this year it's an option. Most of the kids were brilliant, well, most of the time they were polite and helpful also very interested to see what was going on. In Scotland Primary lasts 7 years, Secondary lasts 6 years so in theory there are more children in Primary than Secondary and laterly more computers, the Secondary schools have their own in house technicians but not the Primary schools, initially our team of 3 technicians supported almost 90 Primary schools driving 200 miles some days or 2 ferry crossings and an overnight stay another day, every day was different. In my opinion we have some fantastic Primary schools and Teachers in the west of Scotland, it was a great job which I thoroughly enjoyed and I was sad to leave when I retired. Stay safe everyone.

    Hi Kevin, some career you've had ! Are most Scottish kids bonkers, or just the schools you visited ? We love Scotland, and visit every year if we can, we enjoy Ballater and the North East, great place.

    Hi Derek05, I think my spelling is ok too but in case of mistakes I either blame my dyslexic and arthritic fingers or a wonky keyboard. Actually before retring I used to fix computers in some of our rural Primary schools in Scotland, one school broke keyboards at an alarming rate, the key caps were always missing, another school had a child who removed the key caps then refitted them in a different order, another school had someone who managed to change the language settings for the keyboard, so my theory is that 1 in 10 children are smart but annoying, 1 in 100 are smart but irritating and 1 in 1000 have a great future ahead of them but I'm not sure which side of the law it will be on. Stay safe everyone in these troubling times, we're 2 weeks in to house arrest, hopfully we'll get out in 10 weeks for good behaviour.

    Hi everyone!! How is this about Covid 19 there in Malta? I love to look at these cameras of beautiful places. We are facing this great health problem worldwide, just hoping to return to normal, although it may seem a little difficult, that it will be very soon, but hey, just quarantining all the countries of the world, can be a great remedy for everyone. . Greetings from the southern hemisphere.

    Jeffrey, if you have a look at the Times of Malta website you can keep up to date with what's currently happening in Malta. We usually visit twice a year, but can't see that happening this year.

    Yes we visit Malta every year staying at Phoenicia but not this year.
    Apparently you have to remain in your room for fourteen days !

    Hi Derek05.With the news that the over 70s maybe asked to stay in our homes for 14weeks we felt it best to stay in the UK this year.And yes the Tide came right up to the Sea wall today.
