Bad cracker joke:

Another Christmas cracker from me.

Motto:
Tea and books - two of life's exquisite pleasures that together bring near bliss.

Question: Who is the best travelled author?
Answer: Jules Verne. He went Around the World in Eighty Days, on A Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and From the Earth to the Moon.

Gift:
