Hi Howard, wondered why we had not heard from you. Nice to have you back.
Helen and I went to the LUG meeting in Barcelona and are now sunning
ourselves in Southern Spain. Ronda at the moment. Here its all bull fights
and the horses are more 'refined' ;-) I'd post some images, but looks like
the wifi like everything else here at this hotel is a bit unloved :-)

Already looking forward to Africa.
