BLUE GREY TAKES A BREAK....


Ok... well it was always coming.

Due to the fact that yesterday I found out that the regional offices I work in will all be merged into one in Sheffield, due to my sisters wedding in Chicago in a fortnight or so, due to my and Anna's impending wedding in Shrewsbury in August and due to other pressing matters, I am afraid to say that I will not be posting regularly on Blue Grey for a few months.


I WILL however be posting very regularly on my online photo album site (the New Warren).

Most people who use that "flickr" photo-hosting site don't add much text to their photographs - I always like to - its pretty well Blue Grey really, without the links.


The Web address for the New Warren is : www.flickr.com/photos/the_black_rabbit and I'm sure once there (if you haven't been already) you'll recognise my "Black Rabbit" avatar (symbol of a Black Rabbit on a blue square).


Should you visit Blue Grey over the next few months or so, you'll see the odd post, from time to time possibly, and the most recent twenty photographs in the New Warren scroll through a slideshow in the top left corner of the home page - but that will be that I expect.


Blue Grey was a bit of an online diary, and so, now, is my flickr account, and at present, I have a lot to do - and that is why I cannot justify running (effectively) TWO online diaries...


Want to still keep up with what Anna and I are up to (and seeing) then nothing's really changed - you just have to visit the Black Rabbit's flickr account...

Easy.

Blue Grey will still be kept open (I will use it if no-one else does, as a very useful links page for myself, so I can keep up to date with Urban Extension, Shirl, Shirley and Words etc...), and soon I hope to start posting on the blog again, but its ta-ta for now grapple fans.


I'll leave you with one of the best photographs I've taken recently. Yesterday, as it happens, of a Red Damselfly in the drainage ditch by the "rec" behind the house.

(As always.... click to enlarge).

This photo and MANY others are of course viewable at the New Warren....

See you there!

I'm sure all your Fans who avidly read Blue Grey understand... I must admit I've thought for some time that you should just use New Warren (as it seemed like you were doubling up so much). I wonder if I can stick New Warren on my Google Reader? (I will have to check).

Sounds like you will have a lot on for the next few months. Hope it doesn't mean you will need to move jobs... always a major pain. Maybe it's time to make the move to Dorset or Devon! (lots of jobs in Bournemouth & Poole... or even Southampton!)

Anyway, good luck with everything (I really mean that) and I'll see you over at New Warren! Jane

Cheers Jane!
Yep - lots of important decisions and work in the next 9 months or so....
But I am still around, (and STILL somehow hoping to get doon to Darzet for a beer)!
See you at UE and the New Warren...

Hello blogger, loved the photos. I am enquiring for a fellow poet, who has to translate some haiku poems into Croatian, and can't find the word in Croatian for crane fly. I wonder, is it possible to find out from your Croatian visitor, what they call them over there? Thank you!
