Happy Anniversary to……Us!

Hello and hope everyone is ok in these trying times?

Not to put a miserable tone on things for you, but I lost 4 people amongst close relatives, some due to Covid19, some possibly had it but were undiagnosed until it was too late.

So sad. What can we do. Totally and utterly powerless. We just have to grit our teeth, take all precautions we can, get on with life, and hope for the best.

That’s the sad part over. Now for some happier news!

I received this message from WordPress just now….

9 Year Anniversary Achievement
Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 9 years ago.
Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.
9 whole years since I created this blog? I cant believe it! Time has flown past.
So, as a thank you to all of you whom I have had the pleasure of knowing since then, I am sending you a little lovely tune that stirs my memories every time I hear it, decades after it was written and sung….I watched the film this week….then re-watched it again…it’s such a great story, so emotional!
Enjoy….it here

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!
