Yesterday It’s become something of a tradition this winter for some of us to get together at The Sunrise Café and ‘do the Sunday Crossword’.

It’s Christmas Eve and my ADSL line isn’t working so I’m having to revert to the standby ISDN which is even slower than the ADSL, so I’m not going to hang around. Besides, I have to go down town and buy things… no idea what, just things. Presents and sherry (not for me) are on […]
