Eye Spy ~ When Ms Looshan met Harry . . . or was it his Dad?

From time to time I succumb to the temptation to visit the swamp known as “social media”, despite that there’s nothing you might dream up more anti-social. It’s my job, you understand. And sometimes it involves going where angels fear … Continue reading
