Off To The Brethren!



Many of you will be familiar with my annual visit to the Brethren in the Monastery. I have been associated with them for many years now…….🤓 I have always tried to make at least one visit a year to the Community. Over the past several years I have gone to share in their lifestyle….entering into the rhythm that prevails in the Community.

Will be joining them on Saturday, next,  for the whole of the following week. I’m unlikely to be spending much time here on the blog.

Will be holding you all….family, friends et al in my prayerful thoughts.

Take Care!

Be Blest!

To All My Friends….


As many of you may have noticed, I have not been as active/present around here for some weeks – going back to late September.

All is Well!

I have been otherwise occupied…not least with visiting daughter in Germany…and writing.

We are soon off on an extended holiday in South Africa….until after New Year.

Will be revisiting the much loved Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and back….

Since there is never a guarantee of getting ‘online’ I am unlikely to be very active here or elsewhere;

Moreover, if/when I comment on any posts, reactions will be notified and my E-mail box is likely to be flooded.

So, I might well be ‘reading’ posts and ‘reacting’ to them but will refrain from posting comments..or posting anything on my blogs.

Deo Volente, departure is scheduled for end of month….return early January.

May I now wish you all, Festive Season Blessings…and Good Wishes for 2017!!!

Be thinking of you…

God Bless!

Week-end Whoopee!!!

Two Swiss lawyers were sitting in a restaurant, talking shop.

One of them called across to the waiter and asked:

“Does anyone here have a copy of the Swiss Criminal code

by any chance?”

The owner immediately went up to the table,

his face scarlet:

“Of course, I’ll take the wine back, gentlemen……”

A reporter asked a football trainer:

“How can your team manage to win every match?”

“I don’t understand it, either. What’s more,

before every game I bet the referee

five thousand pounds that we’ll lose.”

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
