Hello everyone, I’ll be away for the rest of the month and this is my last post until I return.

May I suggest that those who do not already know Ian Grice – please do pop over to his blog http://ianscyberspace.com/

He lives on the Sunshine Coast, Australia and is a retired accountant/administrator. He also spent time in the military – a kind of rite of passage for most young men in many countries.

Ian has travelled extensively in Asia/the Indian subcontinent and lived in this neck of the woods for about 30 years. He is a keen observer of local customs and written several short stories anchored in India, Sri Lanka, Thailand etc. I’ve read and enjoyed every one of them – you will not be disappointed.

He also writes poetry – thought provoking verses, just the way I relish them.

You will find his posts and comments brimming with experience and wisdom – and love – of humanity, flora and fauna.

A true gentle soul, he is now, I reckon. But look carefully – I say this is a nice way – and you’ll see evidence of some rubbed off edges 🙂 battle scars of life.

Ian is not into awards but that has not stopped many from recognising his works.

Like me, I’m sure you’ll enjoy his thoughts and writings. Do check out his archives.

Be back in Blogsville second week of August.

Meanwhile, don’t do anything I won’t do – if you do (especially the naughty ones) – I must insist on all the salacious details 🙂

All good wishes, Eric
