Untimely absence. Web-design problems.

I have been very pre-occupied this week with resolving some web-design problems in another website I operate so have not had the time to devote to current affairs for the past few days, notably the continuing 'cash for peerages' scandal, the UK Budget delivered by Gordon Brown yesterday and the Iraq situation. Good news today, of course, is that Briton Norman Kember and Canadians James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden were rescued in Iraq earlier today after what is reported to be a 'weeks-long operation led by British troops and involving US and Canadian special forces'. This is a happy outcome, specially after the senseless killing a few weeks back of American Tom Fox, the fourth person captured with those freed today.

The other good news, from my point of view, is that I have resolved the HTML problems I had been encountering on the other website I mention above and have almost finished uploading the amended pages to the server, so I will be able to devote more time to this blog - once I have had lunch that is!
