Cavalry, Alice and toffee.

1. Anna emails a soup recipe she says will help a cold; and Fenella offers to drop in some supplies if we need them.

2. Bryan Talbot's Alice in Sunderland has spent a lot of time lying heavy in my lap in the last 24 hours. It's a lavish and ambitious comic that guides the reader round a fascinating part of England by way of a variety performance of illustration, photographs and collages.

3. I discover that chewing treacle toffee helps earache.


  1. Apparently hedgehog oil too helps ear ache. Should you be able to net a passing hedgehog of course.
    And should you have the stomach for such a task.

  2. Den -- how... why... who...?!

  3. Some books are for tasting... is open to the public at the University for the Creative Arts George Rodger Gallery Oakwood park Maidstone between 3 June and 3 July, you are invited to the private view on 2 June.5pm

  4. Romany remedy apparently.
