I am among a handful of us who much miss the once frequent contributions of our man in South Wales. For some technical reason beyond his and my comprehension he no longer finds himself able to log on to this site, but the good news that he is in excellent form, as I discovered yesterday when I phoned him just after the great Welsh win against France. We shall remain sworn friends until a short period of enmity intervenes when England play Wales in the final, but the friendship will resume immediately after that.

He asked to be remembered to his friends on this site - and I hope that one day he will find a way of rejoining us.

I've never been totally sure what tech problem caused the issue of access but if I can link BJ to SN HQ for help to get him back online let me know.
