Still around!

Hi everybody! Thanks for all your comments. I’m still here.. I’ve been off the cruise ships for about a year and have some nice gigs on land. I am also learning to be a piano tuner which is quite exciting for me! I haven’t felt much like blogging lately but it seems a shame to quit. I guess the advance of social media has filled the gap that this blog used to fill. So maybe it’s time to get started again slowly. I might move to wordpress, I like their designs.. I still have a lot of great stories to tell.

Which was a shame, really.. but then I got a call to volunteer to play for the Hospice Society at a benefit they were having.  They were hosting a Penthouse tour with the proceeds going to the local Hospice. This penthouse was at the Falls building in downtown Victoria. It was extremely spacious and my favourite feature was the gas fire pit on the landscaped outside deck. Here are some photos:

Alexandria Egypt, where we didn’t go.

We never made it to Alexandria this year, due to a strange combination of pirates and swine flu. It is usually the base for our tour departures to the Pyramids, but the guests instead did an overnight tour and missed … Continue reading
