Sir - I attended a bonfire last night (Tuesday the eve of St Johns) and had a great time, like I did years ago.

What's so great or odd about that you may ask? Well, the thing is I was on my own in my own back garden and I utilised all available combustible material. I sat down on a tree stump and reminisced on bonfires gone by. I looked around in all directions, but there was not sight nor light of another bonfire to be seen in any direction, and I thought what a change and what a pity.
