Well Hello!

First post here in the new blog.

Why the change? Just my fickle nature I suppose.... no real reason to change I know, but that's the way it goes.

What are the differences? Well, here at there is more control over what the page looks like- font style, colours etc. There are more ways for me to compose and send in blog posts than on the yahoo site and there are more ways for me to keep track of the visits to the blog.......yes I do keep a check on the numbers of views.
On the flip side, this site is less visual, the links to the flikr photostream on the right of this page are only text, so there's no tempting you with pretty images unless I embed them into the blog and there are no smilies () built in........but that's not a problem.

That's the nitty gritty dealt with, now for the housekeeping.
Links to the photostream are in the Right hand column, as are the links to other sites that are either useful suppliers or other places I like. You will also be able to access the archive of posts here when I get more stuff posted.

At the bottom of the screen is a link to the old Yahoo blog, so you can still have a look at those posts if you should so wish.

That's all for now.........just got to tidy up at the old place.......more to come before we jet off next Thursday.

Using the 'subscribe to post (Atom Feed)' link works in the same way as the little orange RSS logo in the old blog- or at least it does when i've tried.
Let me know how you get on.
