My Blog

Post by Zooropa »

Ive decided to dip my toe into the world of blogging and will start with my upcomimg trip to Luxor on August 10th.

Please feel free to leave comments - sarcastic and cutting and plain old p**s taking comments all welcome.

For those that don't know: you will have to enter your email address before posting but its not published or passed on to myself - its to stop spamming I presume.

There wont be any content until the 10th of August and even if your not interested in anything I have to say there will hopefully be photos/video clips of interest and hopefully some snap shots of you ugly lot!.

All comments appreciated!

When I click on your link there is a title and, of course, a post "nothing found" but there is nothing that would give me an option to post nor a prompt as to how I could sign up to post.

Hi, I don't think you will be able to post until there is content.

Then you will have that option.

As the saying goes; Forewarned is forearmed. So, if Zooropa, you suddenly feel the need to photograph Dusak in any compromising positions on one of your very privileged invites into my life once here, you will not be doing a blog, but experiencing a bog. A very deep one. :lol: Of course, any photo's you do take will obviously be valued by the many, so a percentage of moneys collected would have to be split. :up Good luck with the blog, good idea and as you can imagine, I will participate most enthusiastically. ;)
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.

Ummm that's true, Z I will bring the contract for your signature all photo's have to have approval before printing.... Do not worry I have already complied compromising piccies of D, was thinking blackmail but percentage of the profits would probably raise a hell of a lot more :ks

Really looking forward to this Mr Z!
Hope it's "warts and all."
Hope it's honest.
Hope you don't see the place through rose tinted glasses.
Hope you meet up with some ex-pats.
Hope you don't suffer abuse and hassle.
Hope you don't succumb to "orfi"marriage during a visit to any kinda "Nubian"village.
And sincerely hope that you actually get to Luxor after all the preparation and hassle with flight times,transfer times and everything else that just makes a trip there SO complicated now!
Hope it's all worth it and you're not disappointed!

There seems to be a lot of people having blogs nowadays, we have two but we never advertise them especially on a forum. We were fortunate to be able to have Armitage Shanks. OH! B----r my dislexia is getting worse!!! :lol: :lol:
