Our hearts go out this morning to our friend Arsenal Muse. Come on, mate. It was only a game. (wasn't it???)
An unrelated apology to our friends at All About Opera, to which I set up a link some months ago. This morning I realised it had never actually appeared on screen, despite existing in my template. Some basic remedial html (a missing ") seems to have worked.
Next, a tip for the person who found this blog by doing a search on "how to train a duchen": it helps if you feed us chocolate.
Last but not least, to anyone heading for Glyndebourne today for the dress rehearsal of Die Fledermaus: WRAP UP WARM AND BRING A BROLLY.
