Well Done Ian on reaching this milestone post!!!!

Some facts about 500:
500 is the natural number following 499 and preceding 501.
Earlier this month in Sydney Australia and on Takepuna Beach, Auckland, NZ, celebrations took place to mark 500 days to the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015

This year is the 500th anniversary of:
The Battle of Flodden;
The discovery, and naming of Florida by the Spanish;
And not least The Kennet Morris Men of Reading.

Yes, wow!
well done, you!

I think I can safely
say that I have read them all!
And, I sometimes flip back
and read odd ones again ...
believe me,
they're there!!

Hope you are having a good
week in Vancouver. Can you
actually believe where you
are ... or where you've
been ... or where you're

I was thinking about it today,
and thinking it must be hard
not being able to bring back
things you'd like to - because
they won't fit in your

Never mind, I'm hoping
there'll be a few (!)
photos to look through
in November!

Bon voyage. xxx
