Millie (in the Grandmother series - despite being named after an aunt) is an Asus VivoBook E402SA laptop computer. I am not happy with this machine. It runs Linux Mint, but spends too much time freezing. It will be replaced.

Martha (in the Grandmothers series) is an Asus VivoMini VC-65 desktop machine running Linux Mint. She replaces Arthur. This will probably be the last device with a DVD-writer.

Górecki's Symphony No. 3 is one of the most haunting pieces I have ever experienced. It provided the background music for a documentary about a South American rubber plantation that resulted in the deaths of almost every person who worked there. After watching this program, I just had to find a recording of it. Naturally, one has to be in a receptive mood to appreciate it. It is not music to be enjoyed.

Arthur Ransome, and his characters, the Walkers, Blacketts and Dixons, have been part of my life for over 50 years. It is difficult to overstate how much they have influenced my life.

What I appreciate most about the books is Ransome's portrayal of plausible adventures.

I am a firm believer in wearing hats and caps. Usually, these are made at the Hufa cap factory in Ålesund, Norway. The model I wear has ear flaps that can be lowered when the situation calls for it.

Emmeline Pankhurst was a British political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement which helped women win the right to vote. In 1999 Time named Pankhurst as one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century, stating: "she shaped an idea of women for our time; she shook society into a new pattern from which there could be no going back." Her work is recognized as a crucial element in achieving women's suffrage in Britain.
