My idea is to make this Website a stable location describing both our family travels, and my persistent, but somewhat idiosyncratic, interest in past civilisations and modern-day science & technology. In addition my idea is to slowly integrate my ‘Brain’, a personal network of facts, links, references, etc. I see my Website and my ‘Brain’  as complimenting each other. That is the plan, but who knows what it will actually become in the distant future. 

At the moment I am in the process of reorganising and revising my site for greater simplicity, clarity, readability and relevance. 

I am also moving the entire site from iWeb to Sandvox (with the page template Apex by Blueball Design). 

One issue is that I have collected images from many different places, each have differing sizes and qualities. At times it might have been nice to enlarge one or other picture, but because the template I am using is ‘responsive’ it automatically scales images to fit the viewers browser. This means that images scale automatically for different screen sizes of laptops, tablets, and smartphones. It also means that the original images must remain ‘native’ and cannot be manipulated just for viewing on a larger or smaller screen.

A related issue is the way media resources are archived on the server means that the text arrives quickly but occasionally it can take just a bit longer to download and paste the images into the page.

Best regards, and I hope you enjoy the content of this site.
