It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

"To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive"

obviously never flown long haul economy class"

Time For a Vacay?


Sorry folks, but my brain has gone bzzzzt and it seems as though I've got a case of writers block.  There's a lot going on in my world right now (all of it good) and I think the blog might have to take a short vacation until things get sorted out and my brain re-boots.

I've got a stack of posts to write on our recent trip to California, and I'll try to knuckle down and get those written and posted in between everything else that's going on.  I'll be here on and off from now until the new year, but not at the frequency I was in the past, and then normal transmission will start again in January.

Thanks again for dropping by and I promise I'll be back!

Oh, and the photo?  A close up of the desert sand in Dubai that I took on my trusty old iPhone.

70,000 Visits!



Wow, I can't believe it!  This little blog has had 70,000 page visits from you lovely people - I'm amazed and more than grateful - thank you so much!

Oh, and I do know this picture looks a wee bit gloomy, but I took it as I was running back to my car (the tiny white splodge in the distance) after walking the dog in a nearby apple orchard as a storm was about to break.  I managed to make it just as the first huge drops of rain began to fall.

Thanks again to you all for taking the time out of your day to come over to visit - you're fabulous!
