Hi all, I think this blog has now reached the end of the road, i have attempted to relist my blog on the new site (god knows why after 5 years) but having tried a new account , resetting my password twice, i am now met with i need a mobile phone (why?) which i havn't got and have NO INTENTION of getting, also they want a second e mail address which again i do not have, so looks like all will be removed at the end of May.
Thank you all for you commemts/support over the years, even though my blogs were infrequent of late a few stayed with me.
Hoping to see you all out there somewhere, keep well. Bob
