Be All My Links Remembered

The Wizard’s Cave stretches, labyrinth-like, across the Internet, its nooks and crannies leading deep through the Web. Unwary travellers meander through, with nary a string or breadcrumbs to guide them back. More prepared souls reach for their Bookmarks and Favourite-Lists, marking their passage as they go. But even these may miss unseen passages, unmarked ways, unnamed doors.

Being a friendly sort, The Crystal Wizard has compiled a list of the major delights, and how to get to them! So, without further ado, The Links: : The Central Point of The Crystal Caves, this portal will allow access to most areas.

Which Crystal is Right For You?

He Waits. That’s What He Does.

And I tell you what; tick followed tock followed tick followed tock followed tick …

The website is up, the shop is open, products stacked neatly on the (virtual) shelves.
I’ve tested the site, run Checking Tools over it, hand-checked the links.
I’ve let everyone I can think of know about it, and done as much SEO as I can (without spending my first year’s takings on a ‘professional’).

And now I wait …

… and wait …

Hopefully my next post will be “HELP! Too busy! Too many orders!”. Hopefully. Not holding my breath.
Just waiting.

Rainbow Mountains In China

Rainbow Mountains In Chinas Danxia Landform Geological Park Are Very, Very Real PHOTOS.

Rainbow mountains! No, really!

A friend who studied geology in Wales always remarked that he was becoming an expert in Grey Rocks. (This was before Ms James’s novel, or I’m sure he would have made some comparative pun.)
China, on the other hand, seems to have a wider selection of colours to choose from!

The Danxia Landform Geological Park is formed from 24 million year old sandstone, and buckled by tectonic forces, giving rise to a startling range of multicoloured mountains!

Wow. Just Wow! 🙂
