Sky Watch Friday!

Sylvia, wonderful. 'the friend who does not consult his calendar' and the one on 'time lost is a part of life lost' - just out of the world. And a lesson learnt. Thanks Syvia and have a great time.

Your headers get better and better, soon you will be on the cover of Time magazine! Inventive hardly expresses it.

On a clear day . . .you have seen the mountain. Isn't it magic when it rears its head above the clouds? Glorious!
