It's nice to be back after a brief holiday in Venice. I took my camera and expected a haunted medieval archipelago, wreathed in fog and full of medieval-faced extras from a Fellini film. As it turned out (thankfully for Mrs. BC) it was really sunny and so all the pictures I took were ones of duomos and gondolas and things, and so of absolutely no interest to anyone who regularly reads this blog.

The late Brian Jones hands over the proceedings and a hazardous oil stove will soon be bubbling away in the corner of the parlour.
