OK, so you are probably asking yourselves, what ever happened to his blog? Well the reality was that the blog needed to be on line in order for me to upload postings and getting internet access on the passage for my laptop was very problematical. I could get it for my iPhone but posting to the blog from my iPhone proved to be beyond my capabilities. So what will follow is not a contemperaneous account of the passage but it does reflect my thoughts and jotting as we progressed, so next best thing. I will publish a posting every day from now. Hope you enjoy!
