Madrid, Dec. 17, 2013

As we head into the home stretch of yet another year, my thoughts turn to all the surviving muggs all over the world, wondering if, in fact, they have survived and, if so, what they might be up to.

Some will doubtless be sitting in their slippers glued to their TV sets, veritable couch potatoes; others may still hobble around the streets and countryside; the younger ones, it is to be hoped, will be gainfully employed and active. A few may still be writing or working on novels and other artistic ventures.

All of which is merely a preamble to once again urge you to drop me a few lines telling us what you’ve been up to in the course of 2013 so we can include your comments in Simesite’s Year End Roundup.

So do take off ten minutes and kindly send your brief or long input, the sooner the better, to Our faithful Ian Watkins in London will post on the Site whatever I have received at year’s end.

In the meantime, we send you all Season’s Greetings and our best wishes for a healthy and happy New Year.

Ian and Peter
