"St George's Day is on the 24th April ('our May 6th'), and the night before is, by tradition, a Witches' Sabbat." (Quoted from Bram Stoker's working papers for 'Dracula')

Contentment is a fugacious state in Saint George's street. New lodgers have moved in to the ground floor apartments. This has proved a rude awakening for my companion and I. We have become acustomed to noise (as any regular reader on these journals will know) but these new neighbours are vociferous exponents of the art of smoking and we find ourselves in a fug.
