TUESDAY 19th APRIL 2005
1) I have just added an extra page, which is linked to the
white smarties tube text on page one. It shows the rotator tube and some other content. It's
well worth a look.
2) A couple of days ago I also updated the magic tubes text
and images on page 3 and the related tube link.
THURSDAY 5th MAY 2005

Saturday 18th JUNE 2005
It's been a while. All I have done today is to tweak a few
links and correct some image problems.
1) The RUGRATS tubes on page 2 are all now loaded properly
and in the correct order.
2) The SMARTIAN lids page which is linked to the SMARTIANS
tube on page 2 is also upto date with all the different lids in my
3) Some minor text corrections here and there. I have also
now got sealed tubes from as early as October 1999. See page 3 of the tubes pages. My

lids were introduced much later.

will be removed after this period unless I decide to sell more tubes.
