Eleanor Roosevelt, 1958

'Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person... Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.' Eleanor Roosevelt, 1958

Happy Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve.  The cat has been bundled into the car, driven up the M5 and is now eyeing up my in-laws’ Christmas Tree.  Carols from Kings is on the radio.  The presents are wrapped, tomorrow’s veg are being prepared, I am drinking a cup of mulled tea (I know: mulled tea, it’s quite nice) and it seemed like a good time to redesign the blog.  This one’s for you Richard.  Happy Christmas, season’s greetings and have a wonderful new year everyone.  Now I’d better go and retrieve that cat...
