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,.
