Back up North. Nice and calm here. Posting from Mums new PC which I sorted out with broadband today. Gramps is totally staggered by his first encounter with the internet. For him it's as if an interstellar hyperdrive warp speed spaceship from Zorg has landed in his back garden. Mark Linkous from Sparklehorse was interviewed on the radio on the way up. He said he could smell the grass growing at his place in North Carolina. I like the countryside again now.
