  1. Dreams and aspirations or memories or both?

  2. Sorry Katherine, I've had to take some time off from my searching Google Earth for a visit to the physio. I now have to wear one of those collar thingys for my " computer neck" and buy some ergonomic furniture to correct my posture while sitting in frontt of the computer for extended periods of time if I am to continue the search for your mystery island.
    Hope you have found a nice stream of fresh water and some coconuts to eat.

  3. The main thing is fresh water. You have got to drink! I thought I'd located you but when Maung, Thuza and I got to the little island in question all we found was a naked Japanese hermit. He said his name was Masafumi Nagasaki but I'd understood that his island was closer to Japan. Our hunt for you will continue. Be not afraid.

  4. Pay no attention to Yorkshire Pudding. Masafumi Nagasaki is not a naked Japanese hermit on a little island in the Indian Ocean. Masafumi Nagasaki is the dish of the week at Atlanta's newest Japanese restaurant, Sosumi, which happens to be owned by a Jewish lawyer. Two other experimental dishes that had been aimed at a largely Southern clientele, Messacatfish Nagasaki and Messacollards Nagasaki, did not make it onto the menu.
