Let me take this opportunity of wishing you a Merry Christmas one and all, and the best for a prosperous New Year.
And a very special one for those who have donated to keep this site going against a continuous onslaught by colouful characters in the region.
We will of course continue to tilt at windmills in Thailand and South East Asia and on the investigative side maybe bring you a series of whole new villains and walter mittys.
But for now its time to be uplifting. So here's American Drew Noyes as a Christmas elf.
Myself. well with three children I'm taking a break to do all the fun children's stuff - as well as taking them down to the beach.
I will of course be keeping one eye open and will be coming on line again if there is something interesting enough to distract you from your turkey and Cherry Brandy.
And thank you to all those who sent me the video of two well stacked woman in Santa outfits doing breathing exercises.
Have a great Christmas................and to Noyes, Goudie, Hanks etc....
