Ooops!! Thanks to those who have kindly wished me a Happy Birthday but it's not actually my birthday, today... I was writing an advance blog using Blogger's Sheduled Post system which - notionally - permits you to predate your posts.
For some reason, however, Blogger (which is presumably on the blink) decided to post my birthday blog for 14 July a full two weeks early!!
Anyway, your good wishes were, of course, gratefully received and will be kept and opened on the appropriate day!
