Wasn't there some way of resetting your old password? But good to have you back, and I like your determination to continue, regardless of password hassles.

Yes, there's a password reset, but it's no use to me. A couple of years ago our family had a hacking scare so I changed all my passwords & promptly forgot my email one. It's still causing me problems!

Death in Siberia - Alex Dryden
A spy novel set in modern Russia. Not much plot & poor characterisation (both main characters were rather Sue-ish). The descriptive writing was AMAZING though, & I loved that it was set in areas of Russia we don't usually hear about, as well as a side-plot focusing on the Evenki (one of Russia's indigenous groups).

Wingless Victory - Anthony Richardson
Basil Embry's escape from France in WW2. After being shot down, he continually tried to rejoin the British but they were in retreat, & every time he thought he'd caught up with them they'd moved again. It took him over 2 months and he ended up getting out through Spain.

Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography
As a major Who & SJA fan, I was thrilled to find this! She finished it not long before she died. Fascinating to read about how she got into her character, dealing with switching Doctors twice, & the K-9 and Company fiasco!

I Feel Bad About my Neck - Nora Ephron
A bit of a guilty read haha...Not usually into comedy but I found it quite funny.

That is so annoying. But pleased to see you back here anyway.
