Just collected the turkey so I think that's enough blogging for now. All that remains is to wish you all a very happy Christmas. Normal service will be resumed in the New Year. Next week there will be an open thread for people to comment as you wish. I may also publish some archive material so do drop by.
PS. The Daily Telegraph reports that Gentleman's smoking lounge makes Parisian comeback. On that half decent note, I bid you au revoir.
