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: 21st April 2014


My apologies for not writing any blogs for a long time. I’ve been very busy with talks, visits and the multitude of tasks which seem never ending. I sometimes wonder how I found time to work. And today’s internet doesn’t really help. I think it makes more work. Once upon a time you’d make a list of what you wished to discuss and then make a phone call – now emails fly back and forth as if they were going out of fashion.
People appear to be attached by an invisible umbilical chord to their ‘devices’. Although I find it rude when youngsters bring out their mobiles etc rather than join in conversations, I’m horrified to see so many older folk also doing so. At dinner in a restaurant with friends the other evening we heard this odd loud sound and there were four ‘oldies’ listening to some music on a device at the dining table.
Anyway, we can’t change the world and I’m afraid this dependence on technology is not going to lessen. It’s not going to be much fun for the biographers of the future – instead of dog eared letters, scripts, coffee stained notes and individual handwriting etc. all they’ll have to refer to are a load of emails – that’s if they don’t disappear into the ether.


I'll attempt to go through my diary and write up some of the more interesting experiences but having left it so long, they might be shorter than usual.  As we are now into April you will have to go to the left hand side of the page and click on March - my newly written blogs will start appearing there as they were experiences in March.
