I'm fairly sure my last post was some sort of placeholder-ish thing apologising for the general lack of posts and assuring my loyal reader* that normal service would be resumed shortly.
For this I can blame any number of things, chief among them the far too early death of Richard's father, Mick, who we all miss very much.
Life, however, goes on, the world turns, the sun continues to shine even when the moon gets in the way, and children continue to grow in all manner of unexpected directions.
So the blog is back in all its rambling, ranting, footnoted, pie-eyed splendour.
Sorry it took us so long.
*I'm sure we had one.
