David Beechcroft-Kay (pictured below with Sharon),  in front of David's beautifully equipped Piper Turbo-Archer.  (You know he was a Cathy Pacific Pilot --- the Archer has two transponders.)  We flew with David from his home base in Cannes France to the Alps (Gap Airport - where this picture was taken) and to La Mole (San Tropez).   (Sharon flew from Saint Tropez to Cannes.)

My old unrealiable NEC Notebook Computer died again (and again).  This happened on Wednesday June 3rd.  I bought a Compaq Notebook, and loaded it with the software as quickly as possible.  I had a question about 1:00 AM, and called Compaq.  A big thank you to Frank Denton of their Customer Support.   I was quickly told what to do, and was back on track.
