  • Weekends to keep dashing
    It’s been a long time since I last wrote in English. This morning the idea dawned on me, and incidently it is dawn ;-)… I feel peaceful and happy this morning.

These weekends in Valais in winter are a… Read More »Weekends to keep dashing

  • Do you like the Downton Abbey series?
    Yesterday I succumbed to the temptation of binge watching: I got hooked and gulped down at least three episodes of the the Downton Abbey series.
