Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's probably my fault,  having rained down inelegant curses upon the heads of the wielders of umbrellas on my last trip to a big city. Strangely, all the people I meet carrying umbrellas tend to be quite short, which brings umbrellas steaming down the pavement towards me to roughly eye level. Having once agin run into a flotilla of their wielders and nearly lost an eye I did have a somewhat unsubtle chat with the west wind, and he agreed to destroy, along with his brothers and sisters any umbrella held too tight by people on pavements.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
