FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS I spent some time this morning on my allotment plot, mainly pulling weeds out of my strawberry patch. As I pulled up roots, I couldn't help but think of my own roots, especially when I heard the school bell ring from the adjoining Testwood school, where I was a pupil…
I have listened to this three times now. It is awesome, absolutely awesome… I never imagined that poetry could be quite so powerful as this. I don't think President Biden will mind at all being upstaged by this young lady. Maybe because of the contrast with the message that we got from Trump for four…
