Not much blogging

During the siege of Leningrad some of the soldiers who had helped evacuate the artworks in the Hermitage to safety many mules inland were given guided tours of the paintings: the guides lovingly described them as the soldiers stood before the empty frames.

There has been too much going on in the last couple of weeks and I shall be in retreat for much of next week, so this picture from our trip to Blenheim a short while ago and this thought from a 'live streamed' film about the Hermitage more recently will have to do for the moment.
