This is my 100th entry anniversary of my Yum Yum Café blog!
Who would have thought it would be so much fun. Now I know (through the sitemeter) that there are a few loyal fans among family and friends who read my blog regularly. Some of you have even, on occasion, written me emails about subject material you liked. What I would be interested in hearing is what type of topic material do you like best or not at all.
Guy Kawasaki recently wrote a very interesting entry in his blog called, The 120 Day Wonder: How to Evangelize a Blog. In it, he made a very succinct suggestion to “think book not diary”: meaning I should write my blog entries with you guys in mind and not just something that randomly comes to mind.
Point taken, so, I wish to send out an appeal to all my readers, what do you want to read? Help me change this diary into a book.

Does anyone remember when flying was fun? Or you felt as if you belonged to an elite club of worldly travellers? Seriously, that was only around twenty-five or thirty years ago…

The colours of the garden seem to glow from within, no matter how subtle they are.
We went yesterday to one of our favourite beaches and the children spent the hours body surfing and digging holes to

Just came back from taking some photos with Chris as my loyal chauffeur. She drives me around in her open jeep and when I see anything of interest, I just yell out for her to stop. She is really good at signaling, pulling over, and stopping on a dime.
Julien has been taking a lot of photos with the digital camera we bought.
Lots of sunsets and sunrises. Who can resist.
And then quirky one as well.

The dry season arrived a few days ago. No rain, but the vegetation is still lush with greens. The newly built house looks spectacular.
We woke up yesterday before dawn, our first morning here, to sit out by the pool, overlooking the wild wind capped seas. The trade winds are still a blowing.
We arrived in
