Good morning from South Staffs where the sun is just coming over the horizon as I type this, which I notice is my 50th posting. Doesn’t time fly?

Rather more significantly, a note in the paper tells us that this is Giovanni’s 500th Telegraph Crossword, and I think today’s thematic offering has given us quite a work-out – well into *** territory for me – though if comments from the last couple of weeks are any guide, others may sail through it. Many congratulations to the Don.
