I decided to transfer my feeds into google - so far I like it much better and it has the added bonus that I can look at them during work!

I have a couple of posts up on my new blog about our trip to London. I hope to add one every couple of days. I'm not just putting up pictures - I'm going to try and put information about what the pictures are and some history behind the places we went. Please stop by!

The phrase 'mind the gap' always reminds me of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere!

I enjoyed reading your blog, Tanzanite, and will have to remember to keep stopping by!

Sorry it didn't work out for us to meet up on this trip, Daphne.

Always interesting to read visitors' experiences of this country and London, in particular. The Tube does have its plus points, but it can be an absolute nightmare and it's ridiculously expensive compared to systems in other cities round the world. I don't use the trains much but you've got to be lucky and they have improved a lot recently. Some lines are notoriously more problematic than others.
Well, it sounds like you had a good time. Look forward to reading your other posts.

I am using google reader, and not just for blogs. You can use it for news sites, Amazon friends and more, just add the URL to your subscriptions and you're set. I hated it when Amazon changed the profile pages and didn't show you what your friends were reading/reviewing so now I can stay on top of it.

It's also handy for blogs or other sites with a lot of pics and graphics that take a while to load - the reader gets you right to the meat of things to read. I think the reader has a lot more bells and whistles than that but I'm not quite that advanced and too busy reading to play with it much ;)

I have two blogs:

My Live Journal, which I have been keeping since 2001:


I make the posts friends locked at the end of every month so there isn't much to see right now.

I also have my writing blog here:


I am working on a pair of novels about Marie Antoinette before she became Queen of France and as I have been blogging for so long, it made sense to post it online. I have had loads of really great feedback and now have a couple of interested agents as well although I am not sure that publication is a route that I want to follow. :)

I have re-posted a lot of my original essays (which were at a popular culture and mil-blog called The Daily Brief to an Open Salon blog, here.
or at the Historical Fiction sidebar to TheDeepening, here.

My main book website is http://www.celiahayes.com, and I have gathered a number of essays on historical events and personalities on this page. Enjoy.

Today is the 456th Anniversary of the day Lady Jane Grey was told she was Queen of England.

I've updated the website with 49 images of 32 items.

To see the newest images go to

Hope you enjoy them, and leave a guestbook msg if you're so inclined.

PS. Sadly it's getting harder and harder to find new images and so the next update may not be until Feb 12, 2010, instead of 0ct 12, 2009.
