My 160th Post: Still Rambling on

Well, I can’t believe that this is my 160th post!  What on earth have I found to write (or ramble on about?)  I now have 11 categories.  Some of these are well left behind – like the London Jaunt and LasVegas.  They’re nice to look back on though.  I am continuing with my Transcription.  ThatContinue reading “My 160th Post: Still Rambling on”

My 130th post:How’s it going so far? Well…….

This is my 130th post!  I’m quite proud of that!  So far, since I started on 29th November 2008, I have only missed 4 days (and one of them was a time difference when I went away).   Although primarily, my blog is about art, there’s also categories, such as holidays, and uncategorised (me, goingContinue reading “My 130th post:How’s it going so far?
