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: 25th August 2014

One of the kind people who wrote in support of my criticism of poor diction told me that the BBC does have a Voice training department which costs £1,000,000 (unless he got his 0's incorrect) per annum.

I simply do not believe it.  Please tell me it isn't true.  If it is - what a dreadful waste of money.

How I wish I'd kept up my Speech and Drama exams - I could have been a qualified teacher and helped the many people who, over the years, asked to be helped with Public speaking.  I always refused because I didn't have the full qualifications.

I really must get on - this is becoming like a networking site which it was never meant to be.  In fact it was my son who persuaded me to have a Website many years ago claiming that it would probably help with regard to work.  It doesn't but I do enjoy sharing my experiences with others - if I think they are interesting enough.  And it has proved a very valuable source for research when I was putting together my documentary on René Mouchotte.  Several people responded to my requests for information and without Mark Chapman I'd never have known the married name of René's sister and my research would have come to a grinding halt.
