Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 28th August 2009

I shouldn't complain as, in 25 years of using Apple Mac Computers, I've hardly had a problem but I've got one now.

Apologies for not writing anything in the Blog.  Got a problem with my computer - fans over-heating like mad.

I took it up to the Apple Store in Bluewater last Sunday but it was declared fit and well.  It isn't.  Even 

typing these few words is making the fans whirr. (But the Apple Store staff are delightful - helpful, polite and lovely)

So until it is fixed - and please God it is soon as I need it for my Cruise Talks on the P & O Cruise up the Baltic - I can't write anything much.

Please don't go away.  Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Best wishes,  Jan.

P.S.  The upside of not being able to use the computer is that I've devoted my time to transferring dozens of videotapes of my work - covering almost 40 years - onto DVD. 

And what fun it's been to watch programmes I'd forgotten about - to see old news coverage of events like the Iranian Siege - and so many excellent and highly amusing quiz shows in 

which I took part.  Wish I could share them with you.
