EDIT: The Corner has gone. I asked them (the boffins) to take it down a while back and now it has finally gone.

Re: End of an era

I was prompted by David's note just to look in and see who Ray was promoting during lockdown. I confess that though I vaguely remember Professor Sikora https://i.postimg.cc/qMMn9Nq1/20200407-170442.jpg I'd never seen him connected with Ray before. https://i.postimg.cc/ry4mpWZh/20200407-165742.jpg (W...
