The Monk will be away for a few days and isn't sure of internet access, so there may be a break here, no doubt to the relief of some readers.
Normal posting will resume at the weekend, but in the meantime the 'spirit' may move Josephus or Mausi to tackle a subject near and dear to them. Harry may even make a contribution in between walks, games, redesigning his 'day bed,' excavating parts of the garden in search of field mice or making new friends.
In the meantime - Pax vobiscum.
