that Dell bakes into every one. This time they bolted the motherboard to the case so
couldn't do nothing with it. To cap it all our internet is down and have to slum it
by surfing via the phone.
We do have a few things from clearing out my aunts old place, and while we have mostly
books brought back and a few old photos and such these two are for the most bizarre.
First up is a Nikini Pocket sanitary towel holder, found along with the second item
its from the 60's I guess. When I got it home I did do a search for it to see if they
were still going and it seems that they aren't. There is a Museum of Menstruation
dedicated to jam rag paraphenalia and such, though its closed for painters once a month.
My aunt used to be a health visitor so it may be connected with that and such, here are
some photos of it.
Second item is probably my uncles, an odd guy who was Canadian and used to paint. He
worked at the dye factory down near the tip and can remember my aunt picking him up
in her Skoda with me in the back reading. Its a Commodore calculator, complete with
instruction manual. CBM started out doing these before their line of computers such
as the PET, VIC 2O and later the C64 and Amiga line before going belly up in 1994.
When my C64 had to be repaired they gave us a commodore branded camera as a thank you
which is pretty cool, would love to see if it was a rebrand or if they really did go
into photographic equipment. Here are some pics of the calc and will when we get a
PC to run the printer, some scans of the manual.
