Pandemic days, and birthdays

Today is my birthday. I don’t say this as an enticement to comment and wish me a happy day, as I have few followers and expect nothing from the disclosure. It’s just another day really, since there will be no dinner out, or long weekend to get away from home and do something different. It's... Continue Reading →

Beginning Again

I'm going to give this one more chance. Last year was excellent in many ways, and also really challenging. So far this year looks pretty good, though it's early days yet.
