Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

My heartfelt thanks to those who have continued to drop in* since things got rather quiet around here.

A combination of a drastically increased workload, swine flu and a serious attack of blogging fatigue have kept me incommunicado for some months, though I have been regularly reading the output of the tougher souls listed in the sidebar - I doff my tricorn to you one and all for your valiant persistence in the face of society's ills.

Normal service may be resumed in the not-too-distant future...
