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.

NELLIE'S TREE

Date: 29th January 2019

NELLIE’S TREE

I went up to York to make the Promotion for my Series Idea. My best friend lives at Barwick in Elmet and another friend suggested a Production Company in York so I combined business with a visit.

A friend of my friend asked me if I’d do a little piece of advertising for @NelliesTree which is being entered into European Tree of the Year Competition 2019 having won the British Tree of the Year in 2018.

I was expecting to do a little piece on the Video of a mobile phone but they’d got the services of a professional cameraman (who incidentally used to work with my friend Sue) Tony Mewse.

Nellie’s Tree - In 1920 on the Parlington Estate near Aberford (Leeds) a young man trained some saplings into an “N” to impress his sweetheart. He won her heart and the rest is history.

My website won't accept the download - maybe later.  However you could look up European Tree of the Year and cast a vote - I think the site becomes active in a few days.

Many thanks
