Some things come if you wait long enough... Things like independence, old age and John Brownlie's new blog which can be accessed at http://jrbrownlie.blogspot.com/ and which you can find in the side bar somewhere over ....=============>
John's been a great contributor to Munguin's Republic and I've enjoyed his sharp sense of humour and our sparring enormously. His first post is howler.
I remember when we started up this blog, Spook, AMW, Omar, call him what you will, wrote a bit about it on his very popular blog and suddenly we had load s of hits...
It made a big difference for me, so I am happy to do the same for john.
Good luck with the blog, John. And get Munguin's Republic on your list!
