Epilogue to `A Rum Punch'

I have added an epilogue to the story --- it's more like the end of the saga --- although I am not sure if it is over yet.

A Rum Punch***(81Kb pdf)

It is a story about a holiday that didn't quite go according to plan... or the next plan...

site history

The record of the site is contained in past home pages, previous news at 10 pages and the the present range of pages on the ring tabs in the navigation row..

(Courtesy of stu nicholls at
I have designed a drop down menu at the top of the navigation column which lists the previous home pages.

In the event of this menu not working for a particular browser, there is a duplicate list in link form lower down the column. I shall be setting up a similar menu for the list of previous news at 10 pages.

You can of course search the site through the google facility located at the foot of the navigation column.

*** & ==

As an aid to looking for what is new and what is coming, I have continued to mark

  • new or updated items on the site with `***'
  • and items in the pipeline with `=='.
