Apologies

Sorry if anybody has sent comments and messages over the last 2 weeks -- I'm abroad just now, and am having Email - broadband problems!  So comments are not reaching my laptop computer -- will have broadband installed next week, and I hope things will be resolved then.  So rest assured that nobody is being censored or discouraged from contributing.  Please be patient.....

Brian,

If you are to be away from your blog for some foreseeable time the proper think to do is to inform your readers/contributors beforehand. That way they will not form the impression you have abandoned ship while they are still in their cabins typing away SOSs.

Brian,

We are all still here waiting for your repairs to be completed.

Incidentally, while researching something else in the Rift Valley, I've come across stone circles near Lake Turkana. These involve basalt pillars about 1 metre tall dragged about 1 kilometre from the nearest outcrop to create a circle (ish). They date to about 4,000 BP.

Don't panic, Mr Constantinos Ragazas, don't panic! All will be revealed in good time, sir. Time, especially geological time, goes by exceedingly slow, sir. All will be revealed, just don't panic! Those archaeologists, sir, they don't like it up 'em..... especially if it's COLD AS ICE...

Don't panic, Mr Ragazas Sir, don't panic! Captain Brian has merely taken some leave in order to regain his strength for the choppy seas ahead.

We must all Keep Calm And Carry On.

Captain Brian thinks about the great spans of Geological time when considering the great issues of Rhos-y-felin, for example, Sir. Other men cannot see beyond the lifespan of humanity and its petty impact, puny by comparison.
Keep your ice frozen, and don't panic!

Thanks Tony -- quite right -- just charging the batteries here in Sweden. Fantastic weather -- bright sun and a stiff breeze -- just right for quite a challenging trip in the kayak round the little island we can see from the cottage. Got a bit wet, but managed to resist falling over into the sea....

And investigating the amazing erosional features on the rock surfaces of the archipelago. They never cease to amaze me.
