After a number of years of posting to this Blog I have decided it is time to retire the Blog and put it out to archive. I have been running a number of Blogs day in and day out for years (except when taking a break for sickness, holidays, a rest, etc) and I think it is now time I look to focus on those that mean the most to me, while also giving me more time for reading, enjoying life, etc. So it has been a good run, but it is time to move on from here. The site will stay up as an archive of those past years. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the site.
Bit of a Break
Just a small note to let my readers know that I will soon be returning to this Blog and my other Blogs after a short break. I took a couple of days off and went on a short trip, then returned home to scenes of a major storm and more damage around the place, with no electricity for a short period. Also when I went away I forgot to pack the power lead for my lap top.
I had originally not planned any breaks from Blogging, so a series of events has led to my breaking from posting.
Posts for the Time Being
I thought I’d post a quick update on what is currently happening with me and posts to my Blog. It is a short story really. I live in a town which is a massive tourist destination during the holiday season – especially at this time of year. What this means for me – being reliant on wireless access to the Internet – is real difficulty gaining Internet access. There are so many people in the area, using so many gadgets and the like, that the Internet is locked into a constant traffic jam. It is practically impossible to get Internet access most of the time. You do get the odd time where you can get access, but it is so slow that it is pointless to try and use it. For example – it takes minutes and minutes just for one page of the Blog to load.
I’ll keep trying to access the Net every so often, but it is likely I’ll be unable to post much for the next couple of weeks. There is good news – the number of tourists in the shopping centre here have diminished, which probably means we are heading back to some form of normality.
I have had some surgery in recent times and while everything seems to be going OK, healing well and all the rest, I have been finding some difficulty while sitting at the computer – so I have been easing off on the posts in recent times. I expect this will continue for the next couple of weeks or perhaps a bit longer than that. I don’t intend to stop posting completely, but there will be far fewer posts during this period. One or two Blogs that I have will receive no posts during this time, while one or two others will continue to receive the same number of posts throughout this period. However, it is all a bit of a daily thing as to just how many posts I upload.
So all is going well, but a bit of a break and rest is needed to ensure a full recovery. Thanks all 🙂
I have had to change two themes on two of my Blogs recently because the titles of posts weren’t showing up on the front page anymore. I think one has led to an improved look, while the second one still does not convince me. So I still need to find a theme that satisfies me (for Kevin’s Walk on the Wild Side). The only problem is there is not a lot of good ones to choose from. Eventually I’ll be happy with what I have.
Tumblr Blog: Wilderness Photos & Videos
The link below is to another of my Blogs, this time on Tumblr. I use this Blog to post photos and videos that I like across the web (including some of my own) of wilderness.

That Time of Month
Well, it’s that time of month when I’m struggling with bandwidth. The last couple of months have been good, but I’m about to crash and burn with the amount of available bandwidth that I have. I have been trying to get enough Blog posts ready for every day until my total allowable bandwidth is renewed (next Monday). However, I’m not going to quite make it. The very slow download speed makes it virtually impossible to achieve anything. So I expect I’ll be offline quite a lot.
As seems to happen on a regular basis, life gets in the way of my Blog posting plans and schedule. This week has been particularly difficult with various family members in hospital and a serious car accident involving my mother. So again I find myself playing catch up with emails, Blog posts and the like. At the very least I am back on annual leave for another two weeks so that will help enormously.
So that is just a quick post to let readers know why my ‘extra’ daily posts seem so few and far between at the moment – hopefully they will soon become more regular.
The Book Stand
The link below is to one of my Tumblr Blogs, ‘The Book Stand.’ The Book Stand is a place for finding free books available in Kindle and/or PDF formats. I post anywhere up to a dozen a day on the Blog and they are all free when posted (but they don’t all stay that way for long).
I Only Forget what I don’t Remember
It is taking me a while to get used to posting this extra post on what’s happening in and around me each day. These are my ‘365 Posts’ for the Blog, where I try and do one post a day concerning my life, something I experience, etc – for each day of the week. I haven’t bee too successful in being consistent at this as of yet. Hopefully soon I’ll achieve it.
The problem is I keep forgetting, but I only ever forget what I don’t remember, and that which I remember I never forget.
