  Thanks Jim,  No further blog entries received since your comment a year ago. I have put site details on a hard drive Don't really know why.............................perhaps it is that I just don't want to let go of it.

Hope you and yours have a good Christmas.

  With effect from 31/12/2015 this site will no longer be monitored. If you need to contact me about any aspect please email me at  [email protected]   So sad to leave but  no one is interested in the musings of an old man.

Had my fun establishing and maintaining site, but lack of traffic volume forces me to call it a day. Site will run until provider pulls the plug..


Goodbye to all and to Telegs in particular    AR AR AR.   :roll:  Farewell National Service... The end of an era.

  This could be the death knell entry

 The site is withering on the vine. I have had 1592 hits on my video without the courtesy of an acknowledgement.

 I am p????d off by the rudeness of my so called guests.

I'm letting the site run for another 2 months and then goodbye all.



Hits and misses

As you all well can see [sarcasm] there have not been any entries since last year and the site is withwering on the vine.

Too bad, I had fun building/maintaining but banging my head on the wall is not one of my traits !

Farewell. I fear many of my contemporaries have fallen off their perches, now going to let the site run it's course into oblivion.

Found a comment on one of my albums which did not show on a notification from site admin. Please if you look at my site leave a blog "footprint" and by all means become a member..........It's FREE !.

Site visitors

  Well at least the lack of visitors is partly solved. I was talking to my son yesterday and I told him I had posted photos of his wedding and  some Tenerife pics.on my site. He said yes he knew and had seen them. I said theres no trace of your vsiit. He replied that it was too much hassle and too many hoops to navigate to get into to leave a comment.

Perhaps this applies to other visitors? I'll never know though.. the gateway is a necessity, otherwise I would be bombarded with rubbish.


Tenerife re-visited photos

 Well bugger it ! Had three wasted attempts to position add photos in correct order with comment. Failure each time "Timed Out" They will have to stay as they are for now until I summon up patience for another try. Not happy.  :mad:  Mike.
