AOL Journals at 5

I know it's still 2 months away (August 21st or something), but AOL Journals are quietly approaching their first lustrum, i.e. their 5th anniversary. At present, I'm not actively involved in J-land, so I'm just putting the baton on the counter and hope someone picks it up.

of all credibility, decency and even his honorary knighthood. Cannot resist putting up this topical video of his rooms. Whose? Oh well, all shall be revealed. No, I haven't returned to blogging as before, but this story plumbs ever deeper depths of depravity. Code word: 1,000,000% inflation.

I have just pushed out over 100 emails to J-landers, and this entry is to reach those I missed by email. This message is to acknowledge the condolences, sympathy and support from J-landers following the sudden death of my mother 6 weeks ago, on May 1st. Everybody's contributions certainly helped to make a very difficult situation bearable in those early days. J-land has shown itself to be a caring community, which I have always believed to be its strong point.

I sincerely hope all are well, or as well as can be under the circumstances. I do intend to return to blogging, but you'll have to watch this journal for updates.

I am currently blogging on my journal from Holland called The Shell Gallery. However, I am not active in J-land (with a few exceptions), and do not respond to comments from that journal. Do feel free to call round though.
