If the quality of the humour declines for a while please do not feel that you are being fobbed off – it is a technical matter. This afternoon I have been informed that the hard drive of the main computer is dead, and there is an undefined fault in the backup laptop that stops it from working… The question of repair or replacement will now occupy the next few weeks. Money will be a consideration, and I am not in the position of some: ie throw a card at the Apple shop and order it done. I need to spend carefully or not at all.
Fortunately I am able to write via the iPad and while you may not get images, you will get text. If it contains more ## and *** than heretofore please put it down to the stress.
It is a privileged problem. We still eat regular, sleep warm, and are not in jail.
