I share absolutely your lack of need to persuade anybody of anything.....;
I even regard it as a gross indulgence to express one's 'opinions' on message boards such as we are doing now......;
so what am I doing here you may welll ask?
It's that other need we humans seem to be subject to- the simple need for communication.[ My preference would be to converse with birds- there are fabulous black cockatoos in my garden and a range of parrots that dazzle the eyes with their splendour- but alas, they seem immune to my overtures ].
So..., here in the early hours I give way to my indulgence and sound off once more.
Hope it is getting cooler in the west- thank god for that good old Fremantle Doctor; and btw: you don't sound half as addled as I usually am
