I'm back, newly refreshed from my week in Donegal and Mayo. Unfortunately, I expect the feeling to last for all of a day while I go about trying to chip away at the mountain of work that awaits me this week.

Anyway - here's a fascinating link to the online 'Proceedings of the Old Bailey London 1674 to 1834'. Each case is a snapshot of somebody's personal tragedy - including this one relating to some poor unfortunate who paid the ultimate penalty for doing the unspeakable with a horse; (his defence was he was merely "making water"). Via Incoming Signals (no relation..).
