Nice to have him back - phew: blog sitting is actually not straightforward. I hope I didn't alienate or confuse too many of his usual visitors. Though it seems from the arrival of JoeInVegas in my comments box that I have at least acquired a new reader from the experience: hey Joe!
Anyway, as title indicates, Rob is back and I especially found his opening remark very well expressed. Qualified "yays" all round.
PS yes, I know, I couldn't spell. "Thinsg" indeed. Doh.
