  1. Interesting stuff in self talk John. I am always muttering to myself. Someone asked me recently if it disturbed me to be traveling in the UK alone. No one to talk to.

    It does not bother me in the slightest. In fact, I explained that I did a lot of traveling on my own in my work in the gov’t, and usually never even turn on a radio in the car as I find my own thoughts more interesting than anything on any radio. Cheers, BT
