Oh, and thanks -
- to everyone who expressed concern about the parasite situation at casa Sharp. Its been a lot better thanks, there was a back up charge from the cavalry pre-Christmas, and we're gradually winning, although we deeply regret the length of the conflict.
For the record, the more people have responded to me off-line about the flea post than any other missive, and miraculously not to sever the friendship due to unreconcilable differences of hygiene standards. Astounding. You're all a bunch of freaks.
