Whilst I was in the process of constructing a post about the Holocaust and associated events and trying not to fall prey to a bout of man ‘flu that appears to be taking hold a furtive figure under the impression that he was immune on account of his flight to climes Antipodean crept up on me and issued me with a tag, the bounder.  Since I have not done one for a while I thought this would make for a mild interlude and allow me to tag some others who would comprehensively fail to respond!

The rules, I am told, are as follows: Each player answers the given questions about themselves. At the end of which, a further 5-6 people are tagged and informed accordingly on their own blogs.  The unfortunate ‘beneficiary’ is requested to let the person who tagged them know when they’ve posted their answer so they can be subjected to pointing and ridicule.
