Blogging will be light this week. In fact, apart from a few things I've prepared to keep the place ticking over, it will be non-existent. I'm sailing around Corfu, courtesy of some kind friends who have a boat. Since I've not been on a non-ferry sea-going vessel of any description in, oh, at least 15 years, I trust I won't be expected to do more than hold the end of a rope from time to time. There was a reason I joined the RAF section of shirkers, not the Royal Navy wastrels back in those not-so-fondly remembered CCF days... See you next week!
