January 2013. It is nearly three years since Stephanie died. Fred has managed to keep our web site running, and has learned how to do monthly updates. Last December (due to steadily increasing stock) Fred attempted the first change to Stephanie’s original web design, increasing the number of pages for View-Master from two to five. This presented a number of unforseen problems, but these have been solved, and all is running well. Don’t believe it when these old folks tell you they are too old for computers!
