OK Ian, I'll admit to sloppy English, but I've got Welsh blood in me - and
poetry is better than pedantry if it gets an idea over! :-)
I'm fully aware that by bridging two bricks by one (or one by two on the next
course) makes for a stronger bond - in my 'spare' time I go out with the
Waterway Recovery Group (www.wrg.org.uk) whose mission in life is to restore
Britain's canals and I've laid the odd brick or two. Some people say that I
lay the oddest bricks around!
