    Mrs Henry and I apologise for being offline for a bit. Circumstances conspired, about which more in a minute.

    But first to alarming news from Old Mr Henry, temporary custodian of the Mr Henry Institute while Mrs Henry and myself do the hard grind of international travel.

    ... clearly the preferred flavour. Oh yes, and the overly friendly ducks also found our toes quite delectible. By the time we had finished our meal - and I must admit, we ate faster and faster as it went on - we were well and truly ready for the mad dash back to our motel and to the sanctuary of a room fortified by mosquito nets.
