    An early summer visit to Seattle.

    Thank you for that suggestion. I am really looking forward to visiting, it is funny though the whole world seems to be descending on London and I am escaping! I'm hoping there is some kind of jive night too. x

    hello there, Over here in England we have been a bit grumpy lately, our hot sun was driven away by driving rain, Vintage at Goodwood annoyed the hell out of dozens of people and we are being governed by twits.
