We had a six-hour power cut last night and I am now finding it difficult to comment - as might you. I will try and rouse - no, not a-rouse - one of those delicious Californian ladies who hold my hand when I'm in trouble with TypePad and hopefully normal service will soon be resumed. If you are having similar troubles please send me your comments via e-mail and I will publish them later.
ADDITIONAL: Aha! I have just remembered, er, my memory! Because of the power cut I had to fill in the details (name, e-mail and website - if you have one) just below the 'Comments' box in order make it work. God, I'm brilliant when I put my mind to it. Now, where did I put my mind, it was here just a minute ago , Darling, have you seen my mind . . .)
