“That one can convince one’s opponents with printed reasons, I have not believed since the year 1764. It is not for that purpose that I have taken up my pen, but rather merely to annoy them, and to give strength and courage to those on our side, and to make it known to the others that they have not convinced us.”

Actually, it began the night before. God knows where I picked it up because I wouldn't go into an Indian restaurant if you paid me. It is, to me, an amazing thing that an itsy-bitsy, titchy, little microbe that you can only spy through a microscope can wreak such havoc to a healthy body. Anyway, in line with my policy when taken down with a truly serious illness like the dreaded Man Flu, or a dose of the trots, I have instantly taken to my bed. Fortunately, the 'Memsahib' is only too happy to trot up and down stairs to sooth my fevered brow, although in this case my brow is not the problem! Anyway, no more blogging today - hopefully I will see you tomorrow.
