Feeling somewhat better today. Went about normal Saturday business, grocery shopping, etcetera. Weather's moderated a bit - a spotting of rain, but generally milder.

Have been rereading a couple of the Appleby books by Michael Innes, which I remember enjoying or at least appreciating in my teens. Am finding them much less enjoyable now - clever rather than intelligent, and with some unpleasant underlying attitudes. On the other hand, if I ever need Irene to impersonate an art snob, at least I now have some background material.

Shame on Theresa May for not immediately repudiating Trump's latest Executive Order. I already disliked my current (unelected) Prime Minister, but now I'm positively ashamed of her.

From all that terror teaches,
From lies of tongue and pen,
From all the easy speeches
That comfort cruel men,
From sale and profanation
Of honour and the sword,
From sleep and from damnation,
Deliver us, good Lord!

-- from A Hymn, GK Chesterton
