Apologies for the long gap in posting on the blog. Two reasons:
1) The laptop's on its last legs, so scanning etc can be difficult.
2) Blogger decided to change its publishing gizmos and, quite frankly, it's fucking horrendous and it's all but hacked me off to the point where I'm thinking of putting the blog into cold storage. They really have made it ten times more laborious to post. I'll see it out till the end of 2020, and see how I feel about it in the New Year.
