Hello dragon fans. I'm sorry to say the author is not very well. The neckache he reported last week has turned into something more akin to dragonpox (he says!) Personally, I think it may be stress due to the anxiety of watching England perform in the World Cup. So I need to stick by his bedside for now. But we are hoping to put up a proper blog on Wednesday, instead, though I might make him do it as I have some serious pondering to do. Hang on, he's just muttered something about his 'England World Cup Song'. He says to keep you amused until Wednesday, any England soccer fans might like to click on this YouTube link to hear his latest bit of warbling- sorry, singing. Till Wednesday. Happy reading. Hrrr!
