WordPress ,you and me 2022 !!!

Right off the bat, I thank you very much for reading my blog, Paris1972-Versailles2003. This blog kept me busy and has been uplifting and deeply appreciate all comments and likes over the years since 26 November 2010! There has been some old virtual friends gone and some new ones I see, all welcome and glad you made my day in time. I started on WordPress after advice from an American friend living in Madrid for over 30 years who told me it was easy to work for the non technical guy in me and it has been a blast ,in part thanks to you. Of course, as you know, will do this post in my black and white series, no pictures. Hope you enjoy it as I.

Many good well wishes for 2023.  It cannot be worse than 2022 so may all your hopes and dreams come true in good health. We stay home as in the last wishing you all a very very Happy New Year and best wishes to all. Another year goes by, and I am now on retirement or it is here pre retirement on a deal with my last employer, The sensations are weird, glad to finally make it and spent more time at home ,but also sad that my travels will be cut in half as no more business trips to far away lands. I was hoping to do more consulting work but the covid virus and my father illness kept me home.

I like to give out some statistics that nicely WordPress give us and I look at it every year at least. Again thank you all for your kind comments and likes, really appreciated.

He is 87 years old and saw the world with me always tagged him along ,so at least he lived a full life ,cannot say the same of my dear mom and wife who went out at 72 and 59.
