This is a personal blog about my life, travel, experiences and opinions. If what I write offends you then please move on, I will not be offended.
Feel free to wander about as you wish. MBH (My Better Half) has provided a number of photos on this site and I freely acknowledge her skill in capturing the moments we both treasure. Some other photos I have borrowed from the Internet and I will gratefully acknowledge their authors if I can find them.
A large vocabulary is like an artist having a big palette of colors. We don’t have to use all the colors in a single painting, but it helps to be able to find just the right shade when we need it.
