What's new

This website!

In July 2014 the site was given a thorough make-over. This brings it into line with today's needs for websites to be accessible on tablets and mobiles.

The changes include:

  • a completely new, contemporary design based on all that was best in the previous site
  • a new, innovative navigation system to help you find your way round easily
  • an enhanced Resources section with a new alphabetical index page
  • a number of changes to the Administrators section, with a more straightforward joining system and improved online database (some of these pages are restricted to UCAN members).

Heartfelt thanks to the wonderful team at EAB for their hard work and for putting up with all my fastidious requests!

Micki Hounslow's cartoons

Micki has been drawing cartoons for me since about 1980 (we were both very young then....). The six primary page cartoons form one set (rumoured to bear some resemblance to me), the six categories in the resources section another set.

To see the detail, hover your mouse over the top right hand cartoon on each page and it will enlarge.

Trivial quiz
How many 'live' mice can you find in the cartoons on this website?

Be warned: the site is seriously infested with well over 250 on the public pages, and well over 300 for those with access to the extra Administrator pages.

So if you have younger members of your family who enjoy a challenge, or if you cannot sleep tonight...

PS:  the number is steadily increasing as new pages are added to the site.
