escape from jam-jars."

    1. What other kind of way would you mean, doomed, I say DOOMED, to live in this gloomy, mist-shrouded and soaking wet country? But don't despair. On the other hand . . why not?

I welcome your comments, the gloomier the better. I don't think there's much hope, but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in what you have to say. If you expect me to approve your comment before it appears, you're about to be disappointed. Never have understood why some hypersensitive bloggers need to see what others say before they allow the comment. Poor, sensitive wee souls.
