Folks keep peeping…..

You know you’re in France……

  ….. when you open the fridge and subsequently faint from the cheese smell jumping at you ! Nina and I DO have some different tastes ! 😉 You also know you’re in France when you cannot get any international NEWS on tv. Local ‘summer festivals’ in St. Quoi are…

Riding ends before it started?

The recent ‘stupid move’ I made, i.e. punching a chair in anger a week ago, may well end my riding season before it even started. Doctor thinks I have a ‘Boxer’s Hand’ and a ruptured middle-hand bone. I can use my hand fine, it only hurts when I try and…

Our Alaska Flight

I finally managed to finish the first of a row of articles dealing with my/our flying in the States last October/November. The first in the range is the story about our flight through the Misty Fjords, near Ketchikan, Alaska. This was something I had been wishing for since many years…

Vacation or Work?

I tell you, this is a tough question. This year we’re in France for 6 weeks and no way I can be away from the Internet and my business for that long. So I brought the Flightsim PC and the notebook along, and 2 1Tb disk with most of my…

We’re back !

Just a ‘quickie’ to note we’ve returned safely back home, and wish we didn’t… much more fun in our ‘other’ home…. but as long as the crisis doesn’t clear and we don’t sell the house, this will be where we’re stuck for a while longer I’m afraid. So now, back…

Some skiing

Yup, some pictures of the last day skiing….. glorious weather, getting a bit warmer even, deep blue skies after the high Cirrus clouds left, and sunshine. There will be more pics in the next few weeks, but I have been too busy in between the skiing, snow shoe-ing and trying…

Been busy….

I don’t intend to make this a weekly blog, but it sure looks like it lately. Been trying to follow up on th MS ACES fiasco and my open letter. Apart from a very few really amazingly dumb replies on simFlight just about everybody (in the FS industry) agreed with…

Hulloooooooo…….

No, I’m not gone (yet). Just been way too busy. Nina and I will give another try at some vacation (or holiday, for my British friends) and leave Friday for France again. I’ve been frantically trying these past 5 days to get everything DONE that I promised people to have…
