okay, wow, I removed that wide link just for you

Oh, tsuwm, you dear man. Thank you for the change. And AnnaS for your note. The change did make everything go back to usual width again.
What I do not understand is how a post in the middle of a "page" can affect the posts before it, too!
One of AWAD's little mysteries!
Thank you again, tsuwm, for your consideration.
And my apologies to everyone now wondering what happened to tsuwm's nifty link.

wow,

The page widens to accomodate the link. Therefore all posts above and below will be widened accordingly. I don't know of any way to architect ahem a web page so that it widens only on the specific post. Think newspaper columns and you'll understand

Oh. And tsuwm's nifty link is still there. Just narrower

Somebody sent me a site showing the distance between the US and Jakarta. It did include a link for driving directions but not being able to drive anyway I didn't bother to LIU.

Would it not also need a ferry between Kamchatka, the Aleutians, and Alaska?

C'mon, you guys! All you'd need to do, Bingley, is drive onto the long-distance ferry, and come right on over.
Though you do have to transfer after being put ashore on
Australia and then driving over the bridge to New Zealand,
right, CapK?

Of course. Driving to the US is entirely possible. What am I saying?

Anyway, the next instalment of our ongoing saga has now been chiselled in runes on the Internet wall. You have 2,000 years to read it before wind and the other effluxions of time remove it from sight ...

Max, dear, I came to the tropics because the English winter was too much for me. A "hard enough" winter in the Aleutians does not bear thinking of.

2,000 years? Really?
My first grandchild just came into our life 3 days ago and I only have eyes for her right now, so I hope I have that much time to catch up with your superb travel journals.
This is really good news. Then I will be able to reread the complete series in some future time. Maybe when I get off this "graniness" wagon.
