This is simply to let you know that having left the Deanery at Durham Cathedral, I am blogging at a new site and under a (slightly) new name. If you've followed the Decanal Wool Gatherer for the last three years, you may like to switch over to another channel, http://northernwoolgatherer.blogspot.co.uk where I shall be blogging from now on (if spared....). A first attempt at limbering up in so-called retirement is already posted. My addresses and sermons are still at my (renamed) http://michaelstalks.blogspot.co.uk.
I shall keep this site live for any who want to revisit it. Thanks for reading and for company and conversation online.
