Changing places

Well, folks, I've finally decided to take the plunge and move this blog over to Wordpress - not least in response to Minnie's input about difficulties in leaving comments here.  We'll get all the links and archives and stuff sorted out shortly, but in the meantime you can find the all-new blog over here.  Look forward to seeing you there.
