    Hi

    Thanks for the follow(s) * (+ likes), as the reason I write is to share.
    * (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

    # By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Kind regards and all the best with your blog

    • Dear Mr Craig,

      Many thanks for your detailed email and suggestions and nice words as well. I agree with you and your family that it would be more entertaining with video camera. Some use mobile phones, digital tools or other “techno geek” as you say. Probably an old fashioned tool will never be a part of history as long as there are people still using it. I just hope. Wishing you all the best Thank you for the last quote, sounds amazing and very true. (“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”).

      My best regards and all the best with your blog,

      Amela
