Last night in the Banner Cross Hotel

... where I can't get a signal, I learned that Dmitri  died that morning. He would have been 50 on Thursday. He had throat cancer, and was in a "bad place" according to Janet.
He died peacefully in his sleep.

Dmitri was one of the Lounge Bar regulars and used to frequent the "Bird Table". He was Greek, and had been a jeweller. His wife, whose name I forget, is sweet and talks to David when they go outside for a smoke.

I was wrong about the Android Blogger app showing all its naked html tags to the world. It opens in edit mode; you have to hit the phone's menu button and select View Blog to see your blog as other see it. These things come without a book of words, you know.

Arising from the quiz:

The tower housing Big Ben is to be renamed Elizabeth Tower by Act of Parliament. Not Queen Elizabeth Tower. St Stephen was invited to comment, but was too stoned to reply.
