How to use this Blog

What is a blog? A weblog, shortened to blog, is an informal journal where the content is often referred to as blog posts or entries. It differs from a website in that the content is often changing rather than static, and all posts are listed in an Archive. The Archive is a reverse chronological listing of all entries since the blog started. Visitors are encouraged to comment on the entries, to add new opinions or share thoughts about them. You can think of this blog as an online magazine or newspaper all about Grasshopper Island, where text, photos and even video clips can be found.  How to use the blog Some visitors will simply visit, browse the Archive and read some articles (posts).

A Google account such as Gmail is needed in order to add a comment. But if you prefer only to browse, you can do that without a Google account. Archive A listing of all

We hope that you will join us in celebrating the occasion and follow our blog, where over time we will share some wonderful - never seen publicly before -  facts, tidbits, photos and footage from the production all those years ago! We are honoured and fortunate indeed to have the supp
