After many false starts I decided to leave this blog until I had more time and some new experiences to tell you all about. The last few months have probably been the most active of my life. I have(I hope correctly) set my next five posts up to time release so this blog should be increasingly active. I also have drafts for at least ten more based on notes I have been making for the last three months.
A little indicator of what has been going on in my life - I am now married! I have a new job, I have discovered various new ales and my reading list is finally getting smaller after years of books being added at a greater rate than I can read.
Hopefully at least some of this will provide passable reading to anyone still keeping an eye on this blog.
