I would focus on a single fish, trying to keep my eye on just one in the school of blue and yellow. But my attention wandered as other fish came into view – yellow and black angel fish, the ridiculously multi-coloured parrot fish, strange-looking yellow pipe fish, spotted cod, schools of silvery trevally glinting simultaneously as the sun lit them up. And as I was floating, staring straight down I became aware that a school of the blue and yellow fish were all around me.

Friends Reunited is now free

Nancy White

Previously you had to pay £5 (or something similar) a year to be able to send messages to old school friends you had lost contact with. I suppose ITV, having paid £120 million for Friends Reunited in 2005, has realised that if there is a future for the site it is in selling advertising not subscriptions. Today I received an email from Friends Reunited that all their services are now free.
