  4. Hi, “Aphra”

    No I didn’t get your comment, unless you meant the one you left in response to my comment on your blog (thank you, by the way!). I must remember to add you to my blogroll. What did your comment say?! Send it again, I’m curious!

    Hope things are good over your way and that your migraine has cleared up.

    Take care,


  5. Hmm,I could be tempted by a pair of swans for the pond outside the Library of Doom. It’s quite a big pond…

    Great post. Made me smile.

  6. Glad you liked it Archie. 🙂

    Séverine thanks for dropping by.

    From what I now of the Library of Doom, a pair of swans would increase the average level of sanity around the place. Have them Mr Librarian, and welcome!

    Thanks for commenting, all!
