  1. Really enjoyed the workshop and learned a motion blur for a bit.lot. Going to work on motion blur for a bit till I get it right. Was also amazed at just how much information modern cameras give you. Also got a new camera strap a peak design slide. Camera sits more comfortably on your hip. The grey one has better materials.
  2. Main ones are confidence and practice. Student numbers are limited so there will be one to one instruction from a professional photographer. Also it is a mental health day

      be careful with those covid shots,  I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend, that they know someone that actually grew a tail.  His wife had to make holes in the back of all his pants.

  5. Another lock down here in NZ . More panic buying and people trying to escape the lock down by traveling out of the city where COVID is.

      It's ironic that people wait till the last minute and then panic buy as much as the can all at the same time. Crowds of panicking people all gathering at the shops together isn't ideal for a pandemic either, and you would think people would know this.

      I haven't experienced much of this year, being out of lockdown LOL :whistling: 

  6. Is anyone in the Witney congregation or know someone in the UK. I have an elderly relative there with no access to the internet wanting to watch the convention. Will need someone to copy it to a usb for her.

       B AThank you. She is not a witness as she lives alone and feels vulnerable being able to let her know who will be calling is probably needed. And will serve as a witness if it can be arranged from New Zealand. 

      My mother talks to her so this will be the first thing she has done with us.

      If you can liaise with her, you (or one of your elders) can find out a contact, possibly the COBE, in her local congregation via the internal info system on jw.org. Even "find a meeting" will likely have a contact number. Then you can get a time and other details organised and let the person know.

      The local elders may be able to copy the RC onto a key and post it to her or put it through her letter box.  The first step is definitely to get in touch with the local elders.

  7. I have been asked to find a second device mainly for zoom. Within a budget. We have a roster to go and help her at the meetings. things to consider She has difficulty seeing black keyboards but ok with silver, It has to be easy to use Touch screen laptops are beyond her budget Using chromecast with Zoom is not good. After much research and thinking about it was looking at a second hand older model Surface pro. It can be connected via cable to her tv. Not many android tablets be connected now. Shouid be easy to use either via touch screen or Cortana. Can anyone see any issues with this plan that I may not of thought of as I have not used a surface pro
  8. Very encouraging month here. 15 auxiliary pioneers and 6 regular out of 55 publishers. Some have pioneered for the first time.
  9. Had a minor brain disconnect while telephone witnessing.

    Going through a list of number I happened to phone a work colleague who I already invited to the memorial and invited him to the memorial. Yes his number is on my phone and saw his name on the list.

    Had a laugh about it with him.

  11. Normally I take the dog for a walk on the beach in the afternoon. Today with a combination of high tide and surge warnings did a street walk instead
  12. i am having a similar problem but now with pdfs. JW library seems to be the default app forr opening files that do not have apps associated with them. so it looks like you have no pdf viewer/
  13. Got to have boxes in the new worlds for cats to sit in.
  14. Just being cautious here. Just want to make sure these tours are not apostate.
  15. If a vaccine is developed and ready for use ,I wouldn't be surprised if we get some guidance in a well researched article from the society. . it will still could be a conscience issue issue. With so much information available many will struggle to understand it'll. I can also see pressure being applied for people to take the vaccine.
  16. Has anyone got a transcript of the Harold King interview or know how to make one

  21. CO visit this week. Still no door to door which as an introvert can be hard enough. Sat in on a group zoom phone witnessing session still finding it another step up of difficulty.  Still building up my courage to make a call.

      The speaker must have prepared well to provide such a heart-stirring talk. May  we always be mindful about the sacrifices that the brothers make while dispensing spiritual food at the right time.

      It sounds like it would have gone well with our next WT study.

      Must have got my blinkers on, didn't see that coming. Anyway next Sunday is the abbreviated magazine study plus 1/2 of the circuit assembly program. So I'd better get cracking on that material and not waste time worrying about the virus swirling in the air.


  23. Does anyone else do the Memorial Bible reading according to the time of the events.
