Hello everyone, just a very quick note to say Merry Christmas to one and all. I've just realized that with leave and overtime added up I'm finished for the year so there'll be no more blogs till January. You won't be missing anything though as we've actually stopped removing coins for now so the picture hasn't changed much since my last blog. Most of our energy this week has actually been spent debating the spelling of torque (or torc). We've always been a torque island, probably due to our links with France but I became aware over the last few months that everybody else in Britain belongs to the torc clan. I've cautiously embraced the "C" over the last couple of weeks but now the spelling conclave has met and we are apparently staying with the Q. So once again Merry Quistmas and see you in the new year
