      Dear Mike, sorry it took so long to respond! Too much happening in my busy life at 82.
      Yes Jessie is my beautiful grand niece. I keep in contact with Brain occasionally. Will not be ravelling to Canada again sadly. BUT I do spend a few months in far North Thailand in the small Mekong Riverside town of Chiang Khong. I need help re-organising my blog. Want to reduce to 5 categories and start loading some of my 20,000 files on to them.
