God Not British


God is not British, it transpires. Matthew 20:16 clearly states; "So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen." Given the etiquette of the Great British Queue, that's just about conclusive! Must be one of these foreign Johnnies - French, or German probably. Certainly doesn't pass the migrant test.

Arrived in Rome last night and a taxi driver who thought I was wet behind the ears tried to charge me 90 Euro off-meter to take me to Pomezia - a 30 minute ride. Immediately got out of the car when he mentioned the price and took a metered taxi for 56 Euro. The rip-off artist was an immigrant.

Hotel is fine, but when they say free Wi-Fi, you do expect it to extend to the rooms and be a bit faster than a snail's pace.

Hay sent me a photo of the result of the electricity cable and grey water pipe laying operation for the cabin last night - my poor garden! OK, it may look like a grass prairie at present, but wait till next year.
