Due to an ongoing health crisis in the family, blogging will be 'on and off' as time and circumstances permit for the foreseeable future. I also beg your indulgence if I am slow in responding to emails. New posts will appear below this notice.

Quote of the day...


'There are three things I like about Italian ships. First, their cuisine, which is unsurpassed. Second, their service, which is quite superb. And then - in time of emergency - there is none of this nonsense about women and children first.'
- Sir Winston Churchill when once asked why he had booked on an Italian liner when the RMS Queen Elizabeth was available.

You know, the news item about the Captain who accidentally abandoned ship reminds me of the sheep-shagger, who, complaining to the judge about his arrest, whined that he had just been minding his own business when that nasty sheep backed into him.
