    I went for a trip round various charity shops a few days ago and was surprised that two of them were shut, due to lack of staff/volunteers. Of the ones that were open, the chain ones like Barnardos and Red Cross were much emptier than usual. Wonder if this is a sign of the times that people aren't donating so much or if stock is getting bought more from charity shops as people can't afford to buy new?
    By the same token the few chazzers I nipped into were heaving, so much so that I walked out of 2 without browsing!
    No man is worth crawling on this earth.

    So much to read, so little time.
