CHRISTMAS NEWSLETTER

It’s the beginning of December, and I really don’t know where the year has gone !

Denise and I have had a great year, and we made our annual pilgrimage to Scotland in May, crossing on the Queen Mary 2 from New York to Southhampton and flying home from Glasgow. Over the years I have been trying to visit islands that we were not able to include on our Scottish tours. This year, Tiree was the choice, and to reach it we took a 4 ½ hour sail from Oban. The big attraction for visitors are the wonderful beaches, and the winds, which attract surfers from all over the U.K. and beyond. Denise and I can attest to the fact that it is windy in Tiree, and trees are few and far between !! However, we did enjoy our stay there, and glad we visited.

In the fall we were joined by a great group of friends as we journeyed from Amsterdam to Vienna on a river cruise. This was a new experience for all of us, and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting new towns every day, and no-one felt the motion of the ocean !

October of course saw the show celebrate it’s 46th birthday, a little more subdued that our 45th birthday. It still amazes me, and a lot of other folks too, that the show has been on the air for so long. It just seems like yesterday when it all began.

The podcasts have really taken off, and it’s a great way of catching up on previous shows that you may have missed, or just wanted to give a listen to again. There is no excuse now to miss a show !!!

In case you need reminding, you can find the podcast at www.am740.ca and follow the links. Perhaps you know of someone who might enjoy the show, please pass on the link to them. This is especially good for those who do not live in our time zone, or country.

May I take this opportunity once again to thank you for your loyalty and support over the years.

Denise and I would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
