So, concerning this blog, I’ve “remained inactive” for 3 months and “indoors for an extended period”. Spot on!

Well, with the clocks having changed, and spring well established, there’s probably no further excuse I can make. Thanks to those readers who wondered what was going on (nothing, is the short answer).

The simple truth is that I just took a break – why, I don’t really know; it’s not as though there’s been nothing of interest going on in Bulgaria and elsewhere.

By the way, if you happen to see adverts on the blog pages – it’s nothing directly to do with me. I was surprised to find some on checking a couple of older entries. It’s all down to WordPress – they are inserting ads on free sites such as this one.

They state:

  1. The site is part of the WordAds program and has elected to show ads to earn money from their site.
  2. The site is one of the sites hosted on WordPress.com that has not purchased the No Ads upgrade, and we are running ads to cover the costs of operating the site for the user.

Option 1 is not applicable to this site, as I have no intention of trying to earn money from it. Option 2 does apply; I have to pursue this, to eliminate the ads for the future. Basically, they want $99 per year out of my pocket (sigh).

Apologies, meanwhile, if unexpected adverts suddenly appear, and annoy you.

Huh! I just realised – it’s April Fool’s Day! How appropriate…
