Where I live…

I guess I should get to know you. Or you get to know me. What am I about, and why do I think anyone will want to read my blogged bits?

I think a good way to start is with pictures. Have a glimpse into my world. After all, I can’t be bothered typing the thousand words that a picture will save me.
