Just so you know

Long Dog Samplers is about to move home and will
be without an internet connection until 30th May 2017.

All this means that I will be unable to send or
indeed receive emails until that date so if you do try
to contact me in the interim please be patient because
I will eventually reply but not at the speed of light
as is my usual wont.

Thank you.
