I thought it was time to blow the dust off my blog.  To be honest, it has been so long that it is going to require the services of a Dyson to clear the dust.  After a long quiet period, I have been going through a busy patch of blog worthy activities.  As is often the case, this has centred on a big trip.  I had planned, to mark my 50th birthday, to return to New Zealand.  The last trip had been back in 1990 with my father.  Now about half a life time later, I was going to return with…
