I apologise to my thousands of readers but I have misled you all. Without recourse to Norwegian instructions I had informed you all that my recent charity shop acquisition of a Sony CD/DVD player DVP-CX777Es was a waste of money. I must have inadvertently touched a switch the cancels the video and it now works! So my $800 machine purchased for $30 now functions beautifully!
Today has been a lazy day watching premier league football, washing and ironing clothes and catching up with the family. I am hoping it will continue in the same manner but perhaps accompanied by some wine!
