At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

Another Lulu self publishing project

I have started a new book using Lulu  (self publishing website - if you're interested click on the link).

The idea is to group anecdotes and thoughts I have assimilated over the years under a number of headings such as "getting lost", "fear", "trespassing" etc. and experiences and thoughts will not necessarily be restricted to outdoor activities. So far I have written 3000 words and sourced a number of photos which will be integrated with the text. My previous six books have all had the themed titles of "Conrad Walks...", so for this one I have provisionally decided on "Conrad Talks".

The knee

I now have a pre-operation appointment for 7th February, so I will get an appointment after that for the operation. In the meantime I have had a few more modest bike rides. The only consolation (for me) is that the weather has been horrible.

l da P - What about: "?" or "...and Walks".

I wouldn't like to live up to your third suggestion. I don't think I am the bombastic type, that is until I am pushed over the edge, and then I become a loose cannon, in which case the usage meaning of ballistic may apply, but Conrad Walks Ballistically doesn't have a satisfying ring . Ah well! thinking caps back on.

I have just had an email from Gimmer saying he was having difficulty making a comment to this post, so I am just doing this test myself to see what happens.
