Guttet-Feschel, Wallis, Switzerland

The ubiquity of tourist information in Switzerland and the wide-ranging coverage of the internet means that it’s usually pretty easy to find out about places. However, as was the case for the Brentjong satellite station, details of this massive tower – a television and communications broadcast antenna – are, as yet, unlisted anywhere that I […]

Sunset in Taormina

It was only when collating photos for my 2010 calendar and for the Review of my Year 2009 that I realized I have yet to post any of my photos from when Jo and I were in Taormina this May. Time flies so fast; it seems like just days ago that we were there. Stay […]

God Went Out With The Priest

At the end of the Catholic masses I attended as a child, it was customary for the congregation to wait for the priest to leave the church before leaving their places amongst the aisles. There was a childhood saying that you had to wait for Jesus to leave, as he went out with the priest.
