A discursive look at Napoleonic & ECW wargaming, plus a load of old Hooptedoodle on this & that

We Apologise for This Interruption in Service


Things have been a bit complicated around here recently - personal and family issues connected with my mother's infirmity mean that I am unlikely to have much time for wargaming or any other leisure activity for a little while.

Thanks to everyone who drops in here - it really is appreciated. I hope things will be back to normal for me before too long - I wish you all peace and comfort!

Someone very kindly sent me a link to the following, which is one of the celebrated 1950s Interlude sequences which the BBC used to employ when programme schedules got out of whack, or when the technology had a headache. This is dedicated to all those who remember those hairy old days of TV with affection, and also to anyone who prefers their films not to have too many sudden surprises, or any of that modern, psychological nonsense. Enjoy.

  2. Best wishes.

    I used to watch the local windmill all the time in summer when having lunch. Who needs the new age retreats when you can just sit in the sun and watch grain get turned :)
