Brief update:Firstly, apologies for sparse

Brief update:

  • Firstly, apologies for sparse posting here. I’m incredibly busy, working very long hours, and when I get home, I’m exhausted. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
  • Secondly, irritating, defamatory and derogatory comments left at this site by visitors will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be blocked. Got it?
  • Thirdly, my team has won division 13 of Congratulations also due to Nico for a creditable second place. I’m looking forward to a great battle in division 12 as I deal with my aging team that needs refreshing with new talent.
  • Fourthly, I gave a lecture to a local horticultural society tonight, where a member said to me afterwards that I was the best speaker they had ever had. Praise indeed, and probably not deserved. But nice to hear anyway.
  • And finally, just to keep Lord Percy happy, I note that the weather forecast for my birthday is excellent (as it always is).
