Even without occasional reminders from friends who have posted little messages, here and at Salut!, I am aware that a little time has elapsed since my last posting.
This is inevitable given the pressure on time created by involvement in a newspaper launch in Abu Dhabi and also by the small matter of moving into a new flat.
Normal service will be resumed before long. In the meantime, feel free to explore the mass of material available at the other Salut! sites and at The National site - see the links in the sidebars.
And be patient: there is more to come on Angels of the North, the dignity of labour and more - whether you like it or not.
