Word of the Week

Backstand } resistance

That’s all Charles Mackay has to say about it, and a modern dictionary search turns up: a device for regulating machinery belt tension.

Today, as we take in the atrocity of the Manchester Arena bombing, our hearts go out to those caught up in it, and our heartfelt thanks go to those helping to deal with it – whether in the emergency services, or simply by having offered shelter and human kindness. I can’t help thinking that we’re all going to be doing a lot more backstanding in the months and years to come.
