While David's away (Introduction)

Apart from our discussions and occasional comebacks from old friends like George Jelliss, xeno, and balance_maintained, it is David's research that has kept this website going for the last few years. I don't know how long he'll be willing or able to provide this amazing service, but I'll take the opportunity now to express my gratitude to him.

David and his wife Susan will end their holiday by flying back to Texas from London, and my daughter and I will drive to meet them at Heathrow on 3 May. It will be our second meeting, the first having taken place in January 2014, when my wife died and they flew over to attend the funeral. Despite our fierce public disagreements and diametrically opposite views on many subjects, we have remained firm friends in our private correspondence, and this friendship has truly brought a wonderful new dimension to the lives of "two stubborn old men", as my daughter fondly calls us.

While David is away, I will log onto the forum every day, in case anyone wishes to make any comments. Please feel free to do so. If I find any interesting articles in the newspaper, I will post them. Otherwise, "nothing will come of nothing" - as King Lear might have said about the universe - but I hope (sorry, but I would find it very difficult to pray) that normal service will be resumed in May.
