surfwide'n interwebber lopers

In a week when we have lost Ivor Cutler, and I have been thinking about Viv Stanshall, there should also be room to remember Stanley Unwin. There is a sense in which Viv - for all his originality - was an heir to, and perhaps even the culmination of, a whimsical British tradtion that has almost died out today.

So from today "Nick Browne's Stammtisch Table" is no more, and for the foreseeable future, A Welsh Born Icon's strapline shall become "Hi ho and a jolly welcode to all you surfwide'n interwebber lopers. Here beholdy manifold things" in honour of Mr Unwin".

Deep joy.
