Many companies credit themselves as being eco friendly, but a few would go as far as The Eco Plumber to reduce their carbon footprint. I’d like to introduce you to Justin, also known as The Eco Plumber. Justin has been in the plumbing and heating business for 30 years and recently ditched his four-wheeled vehicle in favour of a more environmentally friendly version. The Eco Plumber will get to you not in a van but on his bike.
Choosing London for my second virtual postcard might seem strange since I live here. However, it is also an obvious choice for me as I miss my city.
I love New York and it has been way too long since my last visit. I am having serious withdrawal symptoms. As soon as the governments end the lockdowns and lift the travel bans, I am heading to the Big Apple with my partner, Justin. We have both been there before but not together and I want to create beautiful memories with him in this beautiful city.
Who doesn’t love a good sing-a-long? My Quarantine Karaoke playlist is a mix of songs that most people will recognise and some less familiar ones but no less brilliant for a home karaoke.

Ayla Ayla is the main character in the Earth’s Children series by Jean M. Auel. An earthquake kills her mother and leaves Ayla an orphan. She wanders around aimlessly, ending on a path of a cave lion, which chases her. Ayla hides in a crack in a rock wall. The lion cannot pull her out put scratches her thigh leaving four deep wounds. A group of Neanderthals eventually find her by a river and the Clan's medicine woman, Iza, adopts her. As Ayla grows up, Iza teaches her about medicines and healing.
The biography of Calamity Jane is a mix of fantastic tales and some accurate facts. Many of these tales she created and promoted herself in her autobiography, written in 1896. However, she was a woman living in a man’s world, occasionally taking on men’s work and sporting men’s clothes. She could ride a horse, shoot, drink and chew tobacco like the toughest cowboys. She was a woman who did not confine herself and became known for her daredevil ways. She was a woman who became a legend.
