    cold beach

    A fairly pleasant month has been overshadowed by  internet service has exploding in my corner of the Italian countryside. So as most of this has been tapped out on a phone must be brief. Thanks particularly to all those who sent links in for the roundups. None of those for a couple of days while internet away. thanks too for all those who spoke up on posts in the last month! Have a great March and note that Bechcombing is now on something called Facebook.
