what's up?

rare species saved from extinction

Here comes the obligatory reminder: Please, if you wish to enter the draw, leave a comment over there on the blog post of July 12. I will pick the happy winner(s) tomorrow, Wednesday, late in the day (US Time), meaning, early Thursday morning Swiss time.

And for those who already commented and wished me well and said hello and more: THANK YOU!

It feels really good and is a motivation to continue! I am sort of flushing and get red like a tomato (see picture to get an idea how red) when reading these lovely comments of yours.

And here we continue:  As you have seen… my IT gurus sure worked a lot and they continue to do so. There are a few its and bits not working yet, like the blog feed. But the feed should be up and running soon. In a sense, it was a smooth transition. Compared to other IT project it felt like cycling down hill.  Thus, it turned out all well. And what follows now: cleaning up the glasses and bottles after the party and move on. Moving on translates into: Me hiking tomorrow. Us (W.-factor and me) filling 30 ml flacons with Rose vermeille and Rose chyprée the day after tomorrow.

And finally: coming up with some crystal clear thoughts on the near future. The website is there, “HOMAGES” is set in place of Memorables (that never really worked and that was hard to pronounce, especially for me), but we need to continue working on a nice and decent transition from old to new. OLD = 15 ml flacon of rose chyprée, NEW=AUTUMN 2010= 30 ml flacon of rose chyprée and rose vermeille. And somewhere in between is the CARILLON POUR UN ANGE, that remains in PRELAUNCH mode until spring 2011.

But I think the Carillon is worth an extra post after hiking and clearing the mind and nose.
