Which was that in the Old Testament the characters are constantly slogging up mountains to sacrifice sons, ...
... were fine, even the Australians. Interestingly Alex, the man who set it up fell in love with one of the visiting pilgrims and did a runner. David (a former electrical engineer for Unilever!) maintains the tradition - not sure whether this includes checking out the pilgrims? Walked to a tiny church where 1€ bought a huge candle which I lit, with a prayer, for the four grandparents in our lives. Suspect it will still be burning when I'm a grandparent. Upstairs it ...
