    The first May competition is for the chance to win some good summer holiday reading. Set in Florence, The Dead Season is a crime/thriller with the usual dead bodies and missing people. It is by a good author, Christobel Kent, who sets most of her stories in Italy.

    The competition can be entered in the usual way by completing the entry form. The competition will run until Sunday 13 May 2012 at around midday (ish).

    One of the reviewers told me that they now have a copy of the book so have asked for it to be reallocated to I got another number drawn and the lucky person is pussers-hard. (I take it that that is a nautical not porno-graphical term)
     
  19. Pussers hard is/was naval issue soap, it looked like solidified beeswax and was totally impervious to water.........and I still reckon I wuz robbed.
     
  20. Wasn't Wits, was it? [Depending on inflection, that can sound either like a question or as an accusation actually . . .]
