Yes, kayaking seems to be heriditary, also fiddling with aircraft and old motors. But the poetry seems to be the definer. Old family rumour has it that we have written poor poetry for a long time - God Save the King is supposed to be by one of our lot. Good Grief. I myself specialize in very bad poetry. For the honour of the family, do not go and write anything good, now, promise?
When did the Ravenscraft variation come in? It seems to be a huge improvemnent. May the rest of us borrow it? I am dog-weary of explaining what a croft is.
