This is my hat, well it's actually a photo of a variation, mine was a sand color. If the saying "All hat no cattle" springs to mind, your right I don't own any cattle. No horses either.

Last week I was still in travel mode. Back from South America and stopped at a mates place for a couple of day's, even helped pour a bit of concrete, sort of get my bones moving after struggling with boredom sitting in aeroplanes and wandering around airports waiting for flights. Time to get back to my place and so into my car for a 800klm (thereabouts) trip home. Once I would have tried to break records 800ks, 8 hrs,maybe less. What speed would I have to average to maintain 100ks and hour con

Back from about 4 weeks in Colombia. Many people seem horrified as to why I would go to such a place. To be honest, I never once felt unsafe, I found the people friendly, even some street vendors from Venezuela who were living pretty rough.It seems I will always be up with the birds no matter where I am, it was no different in Colombia. Out of my hostel room in Santa Marta, early one morning and out onto the patio, I was greeted by 4 scruffy looking youngsters, maybe about 18 -20 yrs. Looking a

Since joining Wealthy Affiliate I have learnt some interesting things. I have 2 universal twins. Probably there are more but I am not active in accumulating followers. In Bootcamp I have been doing the best I can with the time I have, and last weekend after finishing a post, I went to a friends shop down the road.for a coffee.

Another post done on my blog. The first one for about 3 weeks.Hopefully it gets indexed quickly. Over the Xmas break I felt I was just getting into the rhythm of writing fluently after about 4 or 5 1000+ word posts. Yesterday's effort was done in about 3 or 4 hours for 1260 words. I am not sure it flows as well as it should. But happy I have it out there. you can see it hereI read a lot of the posts put up by those I follow or follow me, and I do a mental critique, some are laser focused, some
