Sometimes, when someone goes away for a while and then returns, there is much rejoicing and killing of the fatted calf (vegetarian option available). And then again, as here, sometimes not.
The purpose of this post is to tidy up a loose end from a few months ago. I doubt if anyone remembers or cares, but I asked if readers could identify the location featured in the current header photograph. Now, most of my early hillwalking pics are transparencies, and I haven’t yet got the technology to digitise them. This was a rare print, and from the context, I at first assumed that it was Culter Fell. However, after some consideration, I decided that I didn’t recall a fence on top of Culter Fell, and that it was much more likely to be Windlestraw Law. I hope this helps !
One of the reasons for my absence was the increasing difficulty that I was having blogging with my previous computer running Windows XP. I fought against the corporate marketing rip-off for a while, then had to admit defeat and get a refurbished Tosh with Windows7 (avoiding the obligatory Windows8 on all new machines).
I now find that the Blogger editor works much better, though it’s still far from perfect, but Livewriter won’t let me in because of some issue with my Google identity !
