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.

Dear All Wonder if you can offer any advice. Today I received a package from Guangdong, China.  In it was a pair of Gucci Sunglasses - obviously fake.   I have never ordered anything online from China.  Gucci Sunglasses are out of my price-range and anyway I have to have prescription lenses...

As you know I have a Twitter account.  Through it I met and became friendly with a lady who'd rescued a severely traumatised feral dog from Romania.  Through patience, love and kindness, he is now a gorgeous domestic animal and I met him.  We've remained in touch and she recently wrote to say...

A few weeks ago I did a Hospital Radio recording and a friend has now transferred it for me.  For some reason I couldn't open the sound recording so he has put it onto Vimeo and put photos on to the screen so one isn't staring at black whilst listening. If you are interested it is about a half hour... Read more...

GREETINGS to my followers

Date: 30th January 2019

Dear All,  Apologies for neglecting you for so long but I’ve been busy working on a project and I also find that Twitter is taking up more time than it should. I tend to report goings on through Twitter because I have to keep my news to very limited characters. As I’m verbose and tend to... Read more...

There's another series of "Marigolds on Tour" and I was lucky enough to be asked to film in Argentina. Just been told that the programme will go out on BBC 1 on Wednesday 20th February at 9.00 pm. Once I'm given the go ahead I'll post some of the photos I took in Buenos Aires.... Read more...

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... Read more...
