Laurence, here's a belated *thank-you* for backing my Acres of Diamonds! (I've been Awol a couple of days...) It's very kind of you - just hope you didn't mind the U.S. spellings!
I believe I read your Cross of Goa some time ago...(!!! Well, I've been here since the year dot.) But, I shall revisit as soon as I possibly can, to see if it's gone from excellence to beyond excellence. Ha. (Seriously, I do remember it being worthy of such a description.) Thanks again for now, from Kay x
