Email has had a major impact on the lives of many of our diarists.
- Did write two letters, though, which
I walked to post in the village. I also sent an email, using my fairly new
and not yet understood computer, to a human rights organisation in the Philippines.
It should have taken only about half an hour to reach its destination, and
the cost to me will be the equivalent of a local phone call.
- I am sending Kit
an urgent email now. I've told him to please respond soon with any local
news he gets about the war brewing on the Ivory Coast, not wait 4 months to
pass that he considers reasonable for writing home! And please think of getting
ready to leave in a hurry if war seems to be coming his way.

then downstairs to check other post.

messages and answered them - most days there is email business for the Dry
Stone Walling Association or the Open
University Geological Society or both.
- Checked emails. Nothing important. Must send
email to Anne in Canada, see how they are getting on and give her the latest
I type up the WI minutes on my computer
and rely to an email from my daughter in Australia; am unsuccessful again to
get through to my son in New Zealand.
