Jo’s Monday Walk2017-Wk-13


Last week I left this journey as we reached

the end of our train trip at almost the top of

Mt Rigi, in Switzerland.

This week I have jumped to the very top of Mt Rigi…

mainly because the walk up was leaving me

a little breathless, although it was nice

to see some of the younger generations

fall behind me…

 Mt Rigi is almost surrounded by three lakes; namely,

Lake Lucerne, Lake Zug and Lake Lauerz.

After a few minutes at the top it was time to retrace our steps…

which I though would be a slower journey

as my knees do no like walking down stairs/hills etc.

It was slower, but it also gave me time to take a few shots.

About half way and still well above the kiosk, on the right,

with the train terminal further down in the middle background.

Mt Rigi kiosk.

This group is just beginning their trek up to the pinnacle…

while we had jostled for our seats on the train

before departing Mt Rigi for a comfortable cruise,

on Lake Lucerne, back to Lucerne.

Book Review-Cut-To-The-Bone


Cut To The Bone 


Alex Caan

Cut to the Bone, written by Alex Caan, deals with all things ranging from an apparent abduction, kidnapping, Vlogging (video blogging), social media and how teens or young adults mange to converse happily expose their lives to a faceless online community.

While in pursuit of a hobby which provides a source of income a young girl is abducted.  It is here that we see how vulnerable the young are and how they can groom and be groomed, by a friend, or fan pretending to being someone else in an on-line persona.

The involvement of a multi-national company to financially support vloggers contributes to the plot when the vlogger discovers that sponsors often do not share the same ideals as young bloggers.

As I have often stated the narrator can make or break an audio book.

In this instance I thought Imogen Church injected life into each of the characters in Cut to the Bone, especially the male characters. Doubtless, not everyone will agree with my assessment.


A definite three star read.
