Hey, I have no idea what either product is, all I know is that on checking my computer somebody calling himself Jack Spratt – a likely name methinks, kindly offered me inordinate quantities of these products by email this afternoon.  The joys of junk mail. Over the past few days I have once again been […]

A beautiful morning here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House deep in the tranquil Umbrian countryside sees my friend Anne out early picking figs. Whilst the guys have a leisurely breakfast on the terrace, Anne who flew in last night to nearby Ancona airport on a direct flight from Stockholm is already hard at work under […]

I awoke to sun streaming through the bedroom windows, the gentle gyrations  of the cement mixer, and the distant rumble of a tractor ploughing down in the valley.  Another day has started early here at Bellaugello, my gay guest house in the sun. Yesterday morning thanks to Ryanair Tom arrived here safely and on time […]
