Barbara Makes A Video

Ever since she read Ben Spark's top tips for using Window's Movie Maker, my daughter Barbara (the artistic one in the family) has been itching to have a go with it.

She's asked me to premier her first stab at making something called a wmv. I wish I knew what she meant, but I'm confident my old friend Thomas Hamburger Jnr will sort out a way of getting it up here. I think she can do better, myself - I'm not an expert on these things, but it looks a little poor quality for my taste.

She's asked me to thank Ben for his cogent and easy-to-follow instructions, without which (she says) it wouldn't have been possible.

Well sir here I have to dsiagree about poor quality. I think this is a lovely video and it warmed my heart. Your daughter did a magnificent job!

Was that Blunt Mansion, Mr Blunt? If so, I feel slightly misled.

Barbara hasn't lived at Blunt Mansion for years, daddy papersurfer. I wish I could say the same for her brother.

And I shall be careful how I pass on your comments to her, moondazer ... we dole out praise sparingly in the Blunt family: a lesson I learned long ago from Wally Green.

It was a very noble first attempt and I am glad to have helped in any way.

Thank you, drew. But it was that Ben Sparks fellow who mainly helped her along the way. I shall pass on your words to her (suitably toned down, of course).
