Well of course not. I merged the two entities and the new one has gone, with all posts being under the old one.

Yay! Order has been restored! The world can heave a sigh of relief.

Now. Where was I before I was so rudely interrupted by two heart procedures?
Oh yes. I've just sold my flat, so will soon be moving up to Scotland, to live near my daughter.
And I haven't as yet, put Windows on my iMac. But will eventually get around to it. As I still prefer PagePlus(6) over any other DTP software.

How exciting although I imagine the packing up will be a bit of a bore...'-}}

I'm pc-based but I know about twisting things up to be able to use the software I perfer as I use Win7/WinXP Mode so I can still use my very, very, very old Quicken4 for Windows software and...access Wincim--I've been able to get WordPerfect 8 and Photoshop 7 to work in Win7Pro/64bit which is good since I use them a lot more than I do Quicken or Wincim...'-}}

Actually, most of my stuff is already packed away in boxes and crates.
I'm going to do my own removals. Rather useful that I've found that I can hire a van, here in London and return it to a local depot in Scotland. Saves me driving it all the way back, empty.

I'm 69 now, but before I retired, I was at first, a pro. wedding photographer. Then I transferred over to video. I used to do all of my own editing, titles, backdrops and graphics. Mainly with Pageplus 6 and Adobe Premiere.
I've not been put out to pasture yet. And regularly use my iMac, a windows laptop and an iPad mini. Which I'm using at the moment.

Yes...we have that sort of thing here in the US. The downside is that you have to load the van yourself--at least here in the US...'-}}

Nice to know that I'm not the only 60+-ish ex-photographer littering the place.

Indeed! And in my day we did it properly, with celluloid film and video tape!
