Thank you everso to my old, dear and quite fit friend Betty for guest editing for the week. And hullo and welcome to the new people that she has attracted.

Whilst I hear what you’re saying about wanting her to start a blog all of her own (bettythemysteriousactress dot blogspot dot com or suchlike), frankly I am quite happy with her having to rely on me and be grateful for the chance of some exposure to the cutting edge internet readers I have. So sorry, I won’t let her. He who pays the Piper, etc.

An emergency bowls match has dashed my plan to write something this evening, so I shall be back tomorrow.
