Greetings.  it’s that time of the month again.  This time, I’m sitting in the Stretford Bridge Club, getting ready for our Committee Meeting at 10am.  At this time of the year most bridge clubs start courses of lessons and we are no exception.  If you’re in the Manchester area and would like to play this splendid game, contact me and I’ll let you have details.  If you’ve always wanted to learn to play, contact your local club, chances are they will be starting a course soon.

Herzliche Grüße aus der charmanten Stadt Jena in Ostdeutschland!

I’m here for my annual visit to the University’s excellent language course and also my annual disaster travelling to and from the city.  I thought nothing could top last year’s journey from home but I was wrong.  The chaos at St Pancras meant that I had to completely reroute my journey through Paris.  I had a first-class Interrail pass which meant I could have travelled on most trains, but because I couldn’t have a reservation on a specific train that would have allowed me to arrive at midnight rather than the original 9 pm, I had to ensure a journey that got me to Jena at 10 am with six changes.   Good old Eurostar will be getting a bit of a stern letter about their part in this chaos.

Anyway, to matters in hand.  I am suitably refreshed and ready to deal with today’s task which I think is set by the Original Mysteron.  A pleasant solve.
