I'm back...VI

Well, I am, and I was going to write a bit more and show you some pics - without the pics there really isn't much. Had I gone to Paris, as my Canadian friend had urged me, maybe I would have had a lot of exciting things to write about! Even before the election it was getting a bit hairy there, and...

I’m back…V

L and I go way back – J came later. Among other things it involved a lot of sailing. Some of you may remember my tales of sailing in Wales, out of Barmouth, and in the Solent out of Lymington, much of it involving racing. Great fun –even if we never won. So there was a lot of reminiscing… In those... Sign in to see full entry.

Just in time for Easter…

This happened a few days ago… “That cat has been out there for a while, looking at something,” my LSW said. “That cat” is not one of ours, who are not allowed to go outside, but a black-and-white neighborhood prowler who frequently drops by to inspect the bird feeders. I looked out, and there she... Sign in to see full entry.

I’m back…IV

As European cities go, Hamburg is a fairly young place. While there was a settlement for quite a while before that, it was ‘incorporated’ only in the year 808 A.D. by Charlemagne. Among other things he ordered a castle (a ‘burg’) to be built there, and the ‘Ham’ bit has nothing to do with what you... Sign in to see full entry.

I’m back…III

What can I tell you about Amsterdam ’s Rijksmuseum? It ranks with all the world’s great museums. It holds an unrivalled collection of paintings by Dutch and Flemish masters, among them Rembrandt’s famous Night Watch, which has its own room. Photographs simply cannot convey the power of that...

I’m back…II

Schiphol, Amsterdam ’s airport, was once among the world’s largest, though it’s been passed by many others now. But it’s still impressive, very well laid out and probably as pleasant as an airport can be. Beside the ubiquitous array of stores with everything from diamonds to knick-knacks there are...

I’m back…

Well, sort of – at least the body seems to be… And y’all want to know, ‘ Where did you go?’ ‘ How did it go?’ ‘ What did you do?’ Good questions… It’s impossible for me to give you a blow-by-blow, but there will be snippets and ‘impressions’ – things that occurred to me in the course of this trip;...

You all know I love my doggie Ben…

From childhood on I’ve loved dogs, and at times when I didn’t have a doggie companion I knew I was missing something important in my life… And you also know I have an aversion (?) for – no, that’s not the correct word – I detest Islamonaziism because of its teachings, its treatment of infidels in...

We’ve had a mild winter – and then came March…

It’s not merely that which makes me abscond from these parts for a bit – but it's a bit of a push. I’ll be flying to Amsterdam next week, and from there – who knows; although I’ve decided not to go to Paris or anywhere else in France or Belgium … I’ve been working hard a straightening out my study...
