This is great ...means I'm getting out there.
I just love the internet!!
It appeals to me on so many levels.
Firstly, I am pretty well obsessed with information and you know back in the day you had to look things up at in books and I was sooo disappointed when I couldn't find the right book or find anything that would quench the current thirst....but now we have the internet and I sometimes find myself getting up in the middle of the night to look something up that I have been thinking about.
Does anyone else do this or is it just me?
Secondly, it is amazing when you are isolated as I am and also can look at art and artist from all over the world. I can see what is happening in every part of the world and how good is that! I love to google stuff...random stuff like " What did Elvis do on his last day on earth "...or " Or how do I make a really great orange colour and bang there it is AMAZING.
Or I can follow a dog race on the other side of the word....and really feel like I'm involved!!
This is how my new American readers came about...see killed 2 birds with the 1 stone...and learnt something to boot.
At first I couldn't figure out how this had happened....but then I realized that due to my information obsession I had been following the Yukon Quest which is a 1000 mile Dog Sled Race which starts in Whitehorse Yukon Territory Canada and finishers 7 to 9 days later in Fairbanks Alaska.
I had made a few random comments and liked their facebook page which.... OF COURSE... led to people then looking at me.
I feel as though I have made a big step forward with my understanding of how things work.....some may think this is elementary dear Watson...but not for little ol' sometimes slow on the up take me!!
So I welcome my USA readers.
These are some photo's taken by my daughter Lucy who is currently living and working in Whitehorse

As you can see they just love it and are very keen to get on the "trail'
I could go on and on about this race and the people and dogs involved.
I love things that are a little 'left of centre' or where man and beast combine to achieve amazing feats.
Think I am going to have to go see this first hand.
That's it for now
