I am running late.. It is all this Christmas stuff, and I also had a day trip, to London, by train, and then there was "that film" on tv, again, which occupied an entire night. But it will work out and there will be a newsletter, or what passes for one, anyway.

Card of the day

Welcome to our Card of the Day teaser. Every night at about midnight a new front appears, so that you can test your card knowledge. The back appears about 8pm the following night. And all cards, plus facts about them, appear in our weekly newsletter, which is uploaded for all visitors to read every Saturday morning.
