The office is tidied, everything is switched off and a very tired fatman is off to Greece for a Christmas break.
There isn't much chance of a post for a few days so I would just like to wish everyone who drops by here all the best, even if they feel like this.
And something for the government to mull over from Patrick Geddes, written in 1917;

Just heard from Greece. They have been without power for 16 hours and the cleaner found two dead rats under the sofa. Paradise.
