One month to go

Until Heino gets here.

This is a community service announcement for the benefit of Kathy.

Well, at least it was less disruptive than the 'emergency cable tests' they insist on doing here. There you are, 1:30 AM, (or watching something recorded at that time) and an announcement scrolls in at the top of the screen, right to left, informing us that the monthly test of the emergency communications system is in progress. Always accompanied by a sinking of the spirits as the sound is overridden by something that sounds like a cross between a modem and a duck being strangled. You wouldn't believe how much dialogue I've missed that way.

Mutually Assured Destruction[^] and the 1950's have much to answer for!

I'll mark it on my calendar! We shall have to see if Phoenix can survive the both of you!
