What’s in a blog?
Words, words, words ….of course….But surely, I hear you say, there are already too many words in the world, as the wise and brilliant Alan Bennett has already observed?  Of course there are (although it clearly hasn’t stopped him, viz the recent publication of his Diaries) but why show restraint?  Welcome to the world of a complete innocent – me – in the brave new world of THE BLOG… welcome to our Hurtwood MUSE.
