In the early 90s I saw a CITY-TV news crew with this little cellular fax viewers - a small box like a slide viewer which were like this, but had a screen inside:

It probably worked like the Faxview, made by Bolton Engineering in 1997.
They could receive faxes from CITY-TV and read them on it. CITY-TV was big on cutting edge technology and had an online presence years before other channels.

The other woman was in her 60s when I danced with her at a party at Tai Chi club in Guelph around 1982. I said I’d been to Dún Laoghaire, a suburb of Dublin, and she said she used to dance at the Royal Marine hotel there. She asked me if it was still there. I think she hadn’t been back to Ireland since she left to join the ATS and became a physical education teacher for the British Army, drilling soldiers in exercises. She told me she joined the British Army because "I felt that the Nazis were absolute evil and I wanted to do something to help”, even though Ireland was neutral and soldiers who left the Irish army to fight for the allies were blacklisted for government jobs and were worried they could be sent to prison after the war. She stood straight but flexible like a spring as we danced.

Simone Holder, MC Tavis Maplesden and lead Bobby Knauff. Yuk Yuk's comedy night, Joel Steele Community Hall, Winchester, Ontario. it was so strange to see comedy in the exact same place as I did in 2019 just before Covid-19 shut everything down. Everything was the same but my mother is gone and Krystal, who I didn't know well then, is gone after a terrible last few years of life,
