Hooray for laptops, and hooray for penicillin. My old friend pneumonia loomed on Tuesday, so I cancelled all appointments and stayed indoors with a pile of magazines and Murder, She Wrote. Hooray,too, for the web which means that instead of staring at the wall I can read the papers, see what friends have been up to on Facebook and order some groceries online. Thanks to a great team, preparations for our April 16 event in Moffat is looking good and we have interesting possibilities on the radar for an October followup, including Alistair Moffat's new book (out March 1st) on the genetic makeup of the Scottish population. Ever been to a book event where you could find out who your ancestors are?
