UPS just came to the door with a new Tom Tom Sat Nav for me. The driver apologetically said that there was a £54+ import charge to pay. “What happens if I say no thank you” I said. “It just goes back to whoever sent it I think”, he said. ” Is it Brexit ?” I said. “Yes it is” he replied. So I apologised to him as he stood there in the pouring rain, but declined to take it in, and away it and he went.

Where is it ?
A reminder from John Ruskin, . . .
“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest, who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.”
From “Unto this Last”, 1860.
