Thanks for this - a quick jiggle of the cable and this issue vanished, along with my panic over where I was going to find £100 for a new monitor!

Twenty-Three Years and One Million Miles

Before I met my husband, Clyde, I had been on a jet only once. About four years into our relationship, we discovered our shared passion for travel on our very first international vacation (to Thailand, Singapore, and China). Fast forward a couple of decades, and here we are, two days …
