A friend recently came to my house and commented disparagingly about my furniture. I guess it’s like the doctor who neglects his own health while busying himself with everybody else’s. Said friend did not stop at the furniture but progressed to my hair, clothes and website. To be fair she was right – we’d been turning out some stellar work in the Porterhouse but I’d neglected myself a little bit – OK a lot. But that’s all changed now with a website that better reflects who we are and what we’re about. I’ve even cut my hair and smartened myself up a bit. I’m turning the Journal part of this website over to her on the promise that she keeps some of her more acerbic observations of life in the Porterhouse to herself. In return she promises a fair and fluent commentary.
