A visitor arrives .

Sorry for my absence on the web , but my computer has been under severe viral attack for more than a week , resulting in complete breakdown and a total loss of the hard drive ; 35 gigabytes of information lost . All documents research papers and 200 e-books everything .
To brighten my mood Doc Jr. has come to visit for 3 weeks , to check on " The Old Man " , his first words on seeing me " my , but you are looking old ", he nearly got dumped on the side of the motorway .
He tells me that a further 630,000 became jobless in March , the US is not a great place for employment prospects at the moment , I wonder if Chicago is being especially hard hit . I can tell you that he is not enamoured with Brown's Britain and that the chances of him returning
permanently are remote , vanishingly so . I do however thank him for a 14oz. tin of Sir Walter Raleigh pipe tobacco , this should keep me happy for a few days .
Lady Doc Jr. had a birthday today and we enjoyed a
truly excellent lunch in a restaurant that I had not previously tried , I can say that it will not be neglected any more ; having lunch with family is one of life's greatest pleasures .
