Apologies from Jo Winters

21/03/2014 Leave a comment

Sincere apologies for updates from the March edition of Criss Cross not appearing on this site. Unfortunately I suffered a hacking into my computer at the time when new entries are normally made and was not completely put to rights until last week. Hopefully now all will be well.  As a consequence of that April articles is entered into the site a little prematurely,.

Faith has not yet been restored in technology.          Jo Winters
