And thank you for all your support. Please feel free to and don't forget to stop by my site to look at my latest (and classic) photographs.


You can get back to home page whenever you like; and you can still read my original homepage.


Note that all the advertisments on this site are supplied by third party feeds. I just provide the real estate, and earn rent when someone is interested enough in the ad content to click on one. While I have no control over the commercials' contnents, they should to be tailored to the story line -- they are context sensitive. So please feel free to view any of the sponsors' sites that are of interest to you.

Here is the list of my yarns thus far. Please stay tuned for more. I don't like dating the narratives, but in order to give some idea of timeline, I supply a date here and there. Time is fluid and my stories are immemorial.

Want to tell me something -- or have a look at my photograph galleries (each gallery from a different part of the world and representing a different theme - worship in Thailand, Eating Out in Bangkok, Sydney Harbour and Beaches, Hong Kong, New York and non location themes: the World in Reflection and Actualities in Black & Orange). I've also produced two benchers, birchonim: Gush Katif and Hevron (Hebron).
