Weekly Roundup, Friday 8 September, 2017

Good morning Although official summer continues for another two weeks, traditional summer has finished, the schools are back, and traffic patterns, at least in Seattle, are returning to their terribly jammed state.  Perhaps Amazon’s announcement this week of creating a second HQ in North America employing as many as 50,000 people – a crazy concept […]

Good morning Labor Weekend looms large on our horizon, the end of summer, and apparently also, one week into this year’s hurricane season.  I do hope if you are in TX, or if you have friends/family in TX, that you are okay and have managed to endure this week’s challenges. We had another couple join […]

Good morning The searing heat of midsummer seems to be softening, and the traditional end of summer – Labor Day – is just around the corner.  How quickly the summer passed, although for sure, my garden is gasping for water. We had another two people join next year’s Grand Expedition of Great Britain this week.  […]

Good morning I hope your summer is proving as wonderful as mine is here.  At times like this, it is hard to think of living anywhere else in the world, but think about it, I did, after noting an article on Forbes suggesting I could quit my job and live in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, for […]

Good morning We’re having a ‘heat wave’ here in the Seattle area, with temperatures in the mid-90s.  That’s a problem for two-thirds of the population – the two-thirds who don’t have a/c.  Making things much worse is an astonishing amount of smoke everywhere, massively reducing visibility, and threatening the practicality of a Blue Angels display […]

Good morning The last week has seen an exciting increase of people joining our Grand Expedition of Great Britain next June.  Astonishingly, nine of the 11 people who have joined have been on one of the earlier Scotland tours, which is a much appreciated endorsement and indication that we must be doing something right. We’ve […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 14 July, 2017

Good morning I hope you had a nice long break for July 4 last week.  I did, although in truth I spent most of it working on what I’m now terming our Grand Expedition of Great Britain next June.  You can decide whether it is grand or not – there’s an article telling you more […]

Good morning As much as I enjoy traveling, it is always good to be home again.  Perhaps that’s the true concept of ‘home’ – the place you’re always most happy to return to. My return from London on Delta was surprisingly good.  Things got off to a rocky start with the plane that was supposed […]
