Despite having a problem in getting this Blog properly off the ground, we continue to get viewers from distant parts; one such place being Indonesia! You are very welcome, indeed! We will list those countries at a later stage. Our ONLY problem is getting a co-author installed on the site. This has eluded us, despite various attempts. If YOU know how to install a co-author, kindly contact us and let us know. The only solution appears to be to create a new Blog, with a new author taking charge of the text, and the present author looking after the photography. This we may have to do shortly. In the meantime, thank you for your patience!
