The Editor's Bit

Nobody responded to last month’s Cover Competition, not even the people that joined me on the IJ when I scattered Elly’s ashes! Café West Indië used to be in that building and I chose it as last month’s cover photo because Elly was living above the bar when we spent our first night together.

I can see that building from my house, so it made sense to scatter Elly’s ashes between where we spent our first and last nights together. A flotilla of small boats, filled with family & friends, went out on the IJ on a sunny Sunday afternoon and after a cruise around the canals, we finished up in Molly Malone’s; see pages 14-15 for the photos.

And so to this month’s Cover Competition: If you can tell me the (current) name of the restaurant featured on this month’s cover, I’ll give you an Honourable Mention on this page next month. I think it’s easier than last month’s, so if I get too many correct answers, I’ll limit it to the first five.

All of our usual stuff is here, including an entry form for our Premier Prediction League, so enjoy your July edition of the Stun.
