Who am I?

An individual, of no great importance, who is unable to see the natural world as a place for competition. I catch fish, watch birds, derive immense pleasure from simply looking at butterflies, moths, bumble-bees, etc - without the need for rules! I am Dylan and this is my blog - if my opinions offend? Don't bother logging on again - simple!

Microsoft melt-down

Well, that's all over now and I'm back home in "Blighty". Why did I cease my holiday blogging? You need look no further than the latest "Anniversary Update", by Microsoft, which resulted in a complete loss of all my Wi-Fi abilities and many of my familiar apps - so thanks for nothing!

The final five days of our stay on Kefalonia passed, in a blur, as time seemed to accelerate the closer our departure date came. Bev and I have returned home after one of the best holidays we've ever experienced and that has more to do with our "gang" than the weather or accommodation (which was top drawer!). Leon & Pauline, Craig & Carrie, Steve & Sue and Dan & Louisa provided company and entertainment for our entire stay. It was epic; right up there alongside the Icmeler holidays of our past.

I will get around to putting together some kind of trip report, if the blog material needs bulking up but, in the mean time all I can think about is getting back out with the split cane and catching a carp! Only one small problem with this plan - it's called work!

"Yamass" - nuff sed!


  1. Nothing worse than work after a bloody good holiday, by day three of work it'll seem that you never had a holiday, you need to retire mate. In the meantime most of the bird life and some butterflies, are all heading in the direction you've just come from.

  2. Enjoy your first cast in Kentish waters Dylan.
