Photography…

As a lot of my readers will know, I love to take photographs and have done since I was 14.  My first job was as a photographic lab technician in charge of enlargements for the company and correcting photographs that had things in them that needed to vanish, a process called spotting.  I had to...

Postage Stamps…

Today I received postcards from Chicago, Finland, Taiwan & Japan, and I have to say I loved the postage stamps on them.  The UK postal system is crap, we do have picture stamps, but try and get them and most post offices have limited supply or, at it would seem most of the time, none...

Scarecrow Season…

Living in the country does have its perks.  Each year the residents start making scarecrows for the festival we have.  So as you are driving through this part of the country there are literally hundreds of them.  Last year we had Trump ones, which were by a carrot farm funny enough.  Even the kids get...

Polecat Rescue…

This week has been a fun one in many ways, but the best part of it, and the saddest was to find a stray polecat.  Yep, live and kicking polecat.  He was so friendly and was wandering about looking a little lost, and hiding under things looking out, presumably for a friendly face.  That friendly...

And we are off.  A lady in Hamburg contacted me and wants to write, so YAY!, here we go.  She is sending the first letter which I am looking forward to receiving and starting this journey again. I have also been chatting to an 82-year-old chap who wants to write, but can only use email... Continue Reading →

Training End…

Tonight I would usually take Mazikeen out to training classes, I decided I did not want to go, although guilt slipped in for a moment.  Lately, in the class, I think Mazikeen is bored too as the last few weeks she has starts playing up and ignores instructions.  She is great during the day and...

Klytus, I’m bored…

It's not just Emperor Ming, I am too.  I have no idea why and what is going on in my head, but I just have that "cannot be arsed" feeling and nothing, nothing seems to take it away.  I think it's boredom setting in and it's dragging me down a little.  I can not settle... Continue Reading →

Penpals…

I wondered the other day, how many of us had penpals when we were growing up, and how many of us had them when we were adults too? I never had a penpal when I was a kid, living in a small village (of French origin) there was not exactly an opportunity to have one,... Continue Reading →

Carpet Cleaning…

We already have a carpet cleaner which I bought about 5 years ago, and over the years it has been good, but it was a cylinder one that had a suction hose with a detergent host attached and it felt like it was not cleaning as good as I once thought.  Yesterday I had ordered... Continue Reading →
