Good Afternoon J-land, today is the second birthday of Joan's Musings two years ago today I saw the word blog on my home page and clicked it and the rest is history so here I am 382 entries later still going strong and hope to do so for a long tome to come God willing. When I was counting the entries just now I noticed that this year I have been very irregular but I have not had that much to say of late but will try harder the next few months of the year to make amends. I would like to say thank you to all who visit me give me advice and keep me cheerful when I need it and thank you for letting me read all about your happenings it keeps me going many a day. Thank You.
You may or not remember that Stuart gave me a 'Reading Notes' note book at Christmas and I have kept it up faithfully with all my reading, that being so I have started penning another journal about my reading and writing a review about each book, I am able to do this because of the little book Stu bought me. It is not ready for reading yet but I will send you the address when I get it up to date it will take me a day or two yet to get all the entries done.
Have been watching the Tour de France today as they are in the Pyrenees today in a long mountain stage. The scenery is spectacular. Again the tour has been marred by drugs as one of the main contenders has tested positive for blood doping. It is such a shame as these riders that are clean work so hard all year for this event and this happens. Most newspapers don't report every day on The Tour until this sort of thing happens then it is front page news it would be nice if they reported the positive side to this great event.
That's it for today will have to get downstairs to see the guys climbing the next mountain The Col De Marie Blanc.
Col De Marie Blanc.
