                  Thursday August 9th Dear Family & Friends, This is the official start of the Old Farts United Kingdom Motorcycle Tour (OFUKMT). My four friends from California arrived in the UK Tuesday afternoon. Duane Leib, Brian Louwe, Ray Reid, and Mark Johnston. All from the SLO area and the Coast Riders Motorcycle Club.  I rode my motorcycle down to Woking to meet them at...
  Dear Family & Friends, I thought I would get one more blog off before I hit the road with my motorcycle. For the last 9 days my niece Leah has come over from California to the UK on her summer break from college. I thought I would give her a treat and take her on a whirlwind tour of London and Paris....
Friday July 13th Dear Family & Friends, Today was our first full day in Lake Como and it did not disappoint. But before I get into our day I would like to discuss some social issues of Italy since I like to observe different cultures. First, one of the things I am really starting to miss about home is going to a...
Dear Family and Friends,   This morning Hannah and John headed home to Portland and Bonnie and I flew off to Milan, Italy to continue our vacation. The flight was easy and we were in our B&B by 4pm, just in time to watch England beat Sweden in the world cup! We are staying in downtown Milan in a modest but charming...
Saturday July 7th   Dear Family & Friends   Bonnie and I just finished up a week in London with our daughter and son in law Hannah and John. It was so good to spend time with them. It was one HOT week.. England is having a major drought and heat wave this month. It has been four weeks since it has rained and the...
Monday June 25th   Dear Family & Friends,   I now have absolute proof of global warming… The weather is England is unbelievably good. Clear blue sky and it is getting warmer and warmer.. Today it actually reached the 80s..!! The prediction is for record heat this week. It is hard to believe I am in England except for the beautiful countryside. Last night I stayed...
Saturday June 23rd Dear Family & Friends, Another day, another bit of culture…. I left my B&B near Oxford this morning and rode an entire 20 minutes to Bicester.. the next town north. Just outside of town there is an abandoned WW2 air field. A few years ago a developer tried to buy it and build a large housing development but a group...

A 90% Day…

Tuesday June 19th Dear Family & Friends, Today was quite a full day.. Before I get into talking about today's activities I will pontificate a bit…. First I have noticed very surprisingly that houses in Ireland tend to be rather new. Most that I have seen are 20-30 years old and many much newer. Unlike England where there are lots of old...
Dear Family and Friends,   The last couple of days I toured the local country side with Bonnie and her friend Mireille in a car.. Taking in the local sites and taking in to much shopping, gin, and food. All good fun.  One of the highlights was a beautiful B&B we stayed in. One of the nicest places I have stayed so...
Saturday June 16th Dear Family & Friends, Before I get into today's activities I would like to address a comment I received from a friend of mine.. (I do consider him a friend even though we have very different political views) He emailed me to question my comments about people I am meeting here not liking Americans or Trump. He accused me...
