Thanks for these. we read them everyday, just before morning tea, and during the current situation we have used our youtube and whilst having morning tea have watched a clip on something that we read about for the day.
the residents are thoroughly enjoying this.

Hi Jo!

I tried the B&W version and it was working, did you have trouble? Can you try again and let me know what happens if it's still not working for you?
Jo 29th Jul 2020 Diversional Therapist
I love these so much as do my residents. For some reason I cannot print out Augusts edition. Am I doing something wrong? It only prints the first page, nothing else. Thanks for your help.
