Egyptology Blog - Updates and 4th Birthday

I will be away from an Internet connection as from today for the next two weeks, so the blog will not be updated. My apologies, but I will backdate the blog as usual on my return. Hopefully nothing astounding happens in my absence!

At the same time, the blog will have its fourth birthday on the 28th March, which is a few days before I return. It is easy to keep track of the age of this blog because, for reasons now lost in the mists of time (or, more probably, the bubbles of Champagne), I started it on my 40th birthday. The blog is 40 years younger than me, but on some days it seems as though it has been around for most of my life!

Many thanks to all visitors for continuing to visit - it is lovely to know that so many people share the same interest. I would also like to partiularly thank those people who provide a safety net for me by picking up some of my errors, typos etc. I am particularly busy at the moment so your help is invaluable.

Special thanks to everyone who has contributed news items and photos. This is my chance to say some sincere thank-yous to some great people, without whom this blog would be a much paler effort:

Have a wonderful & deserved
blog-free holiday!
And do not worry, while you
are gone nothing much will
happen. Zahi will find the
tomb of Kiya, the Bolton mummy
proves to be Khamwaset, and
that spaceship under the Great
Pyramid finally will start
ticking again. Nothing much more.
:-P
Concrats with the 4 year!
