Weekly Roundup, Good Friday 19 April 2019

Good morning I hope your Good Friday is off to a good start, and your Easter Weekend will be spent most pleasantly, including, for the Christians among our readers, some extra time pondering and being thankful for our salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus. If this was New Zealand, we’d all be on holiday today […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 12 April 2019

Good morning An unplanned, but interesting (I hope) attached article today, being a review of a third emergency car battery “jump-start” unit.  Unlike the two reviewed last week, this one works well and I can recommend it with only a very little bit of “maybe” appended to the recommendation. I’m so pleased to no longer […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 5 April 2019

Good morning I hope you had a great April Fool’s Day on Monday.  This year, more than previously, I found myself struggling to tell the jokes from reality.  For example, this story about a tiny town in Denmark with only 7,000 people being the location for a new 1050 ft tower, to become the tallest […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 15 March 2019

Good morning Wow, what a wild and crazy week this one has been, with the added dimension, for me personally but I trust not for you, of (hopefully just) experiencing another kidney stone event.  These seem to be occurring with increasing frequency. The extraordinarily dysfunctional nature of Obamacare was driven home to me.  When it […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 1 February 2019

Good morning While there are no attachments to this morning’s nice long newsletter, that is due to a quirk in how these emails work.  I’ve actually been very busy this last week preparing the pages of information for our lovely Loire Valley “land cruise” in late September. You can see the main tour page here […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 12 October, 2018

Good morning First computer problems then medical problems (an ankle) forced an unplanned silence upon me, but here I am, happily back once more and sharing another selection of the great and the grim. Simultaneously on the great and grim side of things, we had a cancellation off our Christmas “Landcruise” of Northern France and […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 14 September, 2018

Good morning It has been another busy week here at the Travel Insider Galactic Headquarters. To my amazement, I found myself actually liking the latest release of new iPhones, so much so that I’m staring at my now four year old iPhone 6+, complete with cracked screen, and wondering if it is getting close to […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 7 September, 2018

Good morning I hope you had a great long weekend, and that there’s still a generous measure of Indian summer for you to enjoy. It is certainly way too soon to start feeling the winter blues, but it is not way too soon to start planning an escape from that phenomenon.  And have I got […]
