Hi Barn People ... or are you Barneys?

Oh, and a hearty "cheers, mate" to the makophiles who are visiting. Please have passports and visa ready and say hello below. You'll find it very easy to clear immigration here, and please stay as long as you like.

You'll be pleased to know your favorite barn dweller got a well-deserved (and only partially needed) 12-hour beauty rest, no doubt exhausted by the long flight and George's attack on his delicated Sondheim sensibilities. He's now halfway through his 2nd Bloody Mary. I, on the other hand, am not on holiday and so I've had an invigorating 6-mile run and am enjoying a protein shake.

And that is not a euphemism.
