The Finger of Time having wrote….

– Moves on, or so they say.  Who are they? ancestral voices probably: echoes of the past that linger on in us.  I’m talking about Genealogy of course, that’s what I’ve been doing today.  I started researching my family tree a few years ago.  I think most people do when they get to that ‘certain’Continue reading “The Finger of Time having wrote….”

Dear Reader I read it: ‘Daphne’ by Justine Picardie and ‘Christ the Lord, out of Egypt’ by Anne Rice

Cocktails: My New Art Form?

Firstly, I’d like to say that I know nothing about cocktails.  I’ve only ever had a couple of cocktails in my whole life.   By this, I mean Pina Colada’s, Margueritas etc: old hat.    The cocktails I had in Las Vegas were an entirely different matter though: they has lots of different stuff in em.   Maybe it’s becauseContinue reading “Cocktails: My New Art Form?”
