This blog is dedicated to my eldest daughter, Tanya, as she has often requested I open up such a blog and share all the knowledge collected over many years.  A blog is a great way to do this as all the posts can be easily searched or found listed under categories.

This blog is also dedicated to my youngest daughter, Natalie, and my two wonderful grandchildren, Zora and Hanna, who are on the threshold of springing out into the great wide world and as the blog grows in size, they may find a number of items which turn out to be very helpful in their journeys.

For all the rest of you out there sharing this unique ride on earth through the galaxy, may you also find some gems of knowledge on this blog.

God bless and take care..
