IW: The holiday in The Shop, away from The Valley continues, as does the newsfast, as I suppose does the Olympics and war in Georgia.
The quarry is growing on me; it is tucked away from the main 'village'.
Today the weather is bad; so we will go and visit some friends.
As we drive out through the village, the shops are all open, and many, many people are out in the rain, shopping. They look very unhappy and very prosperous.
