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.

Damn and blast

Date: 15th March 2008

I don't believe it.  I've just spent an hour typing all the latest news only to lose it twice.  Sorry folks but I'm too tired to do it again. It's all this technology which completely foxes me.  

You were going to get an update on my son's visit and his Sky dive for Cancer Research - but I really cannot set to and type it all again.  I've just noticed a little message at the top of the page which says that I will be logged out after 18 minutes.  I always have been verbose and as I am a touch typist, I write to you as thought I'm talking and that's why I keep losing copy.  I type for too long.

OK well I'm not going to type all the news again - I'll have to find out how I can extend my Log time or else be less verbose.

But I will tell you that Jonathan, my son, is going to do a Skydive for Cancer Research.  Having had Testicular Cancer almost three years ago, he now tries to raise money for Orchid - an essentially Male Cancer dealing with Testicular, Penile and Prostate Cancers.

He's booked his Skydive but we are praying for less wind.  The Cape is known for the wind - known as the Cape Doctor as it's supposed to blow away disease and infection - but the last two months have been totally abnormal.  Today the wind was ridiculous.  Had I been carrying an umbrella, I would have taken off like Mary Poppins.

Anyway, Jonathan has already raised over £3,000 in sponsorship.  So if you are feeling generous and lucky to be alive and without illness this is the site http://www.bmycharity.com/LeemoLeaps    it is secure.

Better log out before I lose this little lot.  Will write at more length when we get back from our mini Safari.

Affectionately, Jan

Hey, I've just read about that tourist who ended up with her head in the Lion's mouth.  Well, if that happens, I'll get Jonathan to tell you on the Blog.
