The day started with a heap of orders. One of them was for £300 of bulk coins and another was an order for 30 different items. It was nearly 2.00pm by the time we got it all done, and there was such a long queue in the post office that we had to leave the parcels there and go back later. It looks like everyone had a good weekend on eBay.
The photographs are the aluminium medallion I mentioned a couple of days ago. I finally got round to finding the camera I managed to mislay over the weekend.
I’ve just had a break and am now back at the computer on a Zoom meeting with the Numismatic Society. It’s a bit tricky as I have no camera or microphone, but I am able to see other people and hear them. Well, the ones that have cameras and microphones – I’m not the only Luddite in the Society.
The advantage of Zoom, as I’m finding, is that you can write a blog post and order pizza whilst being at a meeting. This is why the “no camera” option suits me. They won’t be able to see me eating. It’s not quite the healthy option I was intending, I will have to make it up to my body by eating lots of salad for the rest of the week.
It’s quite an interesting talk tonight, though counter-stamped coins of various Caribbean islands are not something I’d ever thought about before. As I said before – collecting expands the mind.
There is a silver lining to most clouds. 🙂 We adopt technology that is useful, the rest can wait.
Yes, that is true. I will either find myself adopting things, or I will do without. The world will still go on without me knowing what a QR code does, or os, or works . . .
You have neatly solved the etiquette problem of being hungry during a Zoom meeting. There are benefits from being behind the times.
Behind the times and outside the pizza. 🙂
