Gale force winds in Scotland

Most of Scotland and other parts of the UK and Ireland had strong winds today.  Up to 90 mph were predicted for our area, with higher winds measured in other areas.  Schools and businesses were closed.  Ferries cancelled.  Bridges closed.

Winds reached up 165 mph in some areas.

New blogs

I have recently added two blogs  I thought might be helpful.  

The first is How I quit smoking.

The other is How I got fit and healthy at 60.

We are getting ready for our trek to Michigan for the holidays and leave next week.  We're looking forward to seeing family, but not really anxious to see the snow!

Some blog readers ask where my photos are kept.  I have a link in the sidebar of this blog but if you only get updates by email, you won't see it.  Photo collections
