i do not speak italian


, and therefore it would be wrong of me to take the mickey out of an Italian's English.

Portofino World Dot Com has a piece on Marconi, who spent a lot of time there. It opens:
Only out of respect for chronological order have we waited until now to remember in this review of personalities connected with Portofino, the scientist of world importance and genius of physics, Guglielmo Marconi and his mythical yacht the “Electra”.
What's not to like about this? It doesn't get worse, either.

In other wireless news, my mobile phone's screen has gone on the dodgy. This is annoying but doesn't affect you unless you are trying to contact me. Then it does.

In other news entirely, Marie and I have finally written Episode 5 of Warhorses of Letters. Be afraid. (Don't be afraid.)
