Seven years of sunsets. Tuesday 18th October St-Jean-de-Losne

Having finally left Lagarde by about ten minutes past lunchtime, by the time the sun was going down we found ourselves back at the “scene of the crime”.  On board “Tiara” with Ron and Robin themselves in an advanced state of packed for winter, the second glass of fizzy water ...

I thought when I removed myself quietly from the instution known colloquially as "the work force", that my days of working without sleep were over.

I am not sure how it came to be that I now find myself in 2012, with five domains, half a dozen or maybe more sub-domains, several thousand pages of blog to maintain and at least hundreds of web pages in need of taming, as well as a small but terribly distracting mail list to run.

Did I mention that after more than a decade, we have been discretely evicted from Apple's MobleMe hosting, so as all sites are currently, like the economies of the Eurozone, under reconstruction.

So if my pages have a link or two missing don't fret for a week or two, at least until after this message has been removed, by which time I will once again be happy to hear from anyone!

In the meantime, please browse this one page and try your luck with any link that works. You will probably have to use your browser's "back button" to return though.
