    I follow an Englishmans website at

    https://derrickjknight.com

    now Derrick is an extraordinary intelligent sort of bloke. For 20 years he compiled the cryptic crossword in the London “Times” newspaper, when it was the “Times” under the pseudonym Mordred.
    He is now retired from that sadistic job and produces a most delightful picturesque website.
    You might enjoy visiting him, He has many American visitors who seem to adore him,
    I used to be an avid crossword solver.


I'd love to hear what you have to say.
