Daisies in June

Welcome to the July 2021 edition of the W2hen newsletter.

The first couple of weeks in June certainly lived up to the label 'Flaming June'. I have to admit, though, that until I researched this label a little bit, I didn't realise that it didn't originally refer to the weather at all. You can read more about the origins of "Flaming June" in the Features section.

You can find your way round the site by using the navigation links above. In each section, items and features are previewed in the main part of the page and you can read more about each of them by clicking the Read More link.

Clicking Home will always bring you back to this page.

Bits and Bytes

One of the most common reasons for people to ask for technical help with their computers is that everything has started to go at a ridiculously slow pace. The focus of this section this month is on making your computer go faster.

Summer has arrived!


This is the time of year when many of us are accustomed to thinking about jetting off to somewhere hot for a summer break. Unfortunately, this is still difficult, although it has meant that many more people are discovering the delights of holidaying in the UK. Speaking personally, I would much prefer a holiday in the Wye Valley, or the Shropshire Hills, than anywhere in the south of Spain.
