HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all

Still recovering from yesterdays excitement.  Have to pack a bag as have a conference in Oxford that means an overnight stay - if the place has wi-fi i will check back in this evening.  Staying in one of the Oxford colleges - one of the old ones with quads and spires and everything.  Will play at Brideshead Revisited for 24hours ... Or was it Chariots of Fire??

Oh, and Panda, your echinaceas are called Tiki Torch  - i bet Verdun's got them in his garden.
