This year, for a change the date of Easter for western churches coincides with the date for the Eastern Orthodox churches so for me it will be a chance to overeat chocolate eggs and crack coloured boiled eggs. So good. For others, it is a chance to go camping with... Continue reading

I would like to recognise the unsung heroes who supply us with acronyms. They are the dinosaur age whose work evolved into SMS so we can walk around saying LOL and IMHO or YOLO and everyone knows what we mean. We almost had in the 1990s the Federal Administrative Review... Continue reading
