On the way home from the supermarket, post office, fruit shop and bakery, I dropped into my local newsagency, which I have not needed to visit much since I got the iPad. The owners still remember me and greet me by name even though it is years since I had the paper delivered. They even remember where I live: "Are you really going to walk down there with all that shopping?"
They have decided to close on Sundays soon as they have so few customers. Feeling really guilty about not buying the paper any more, I bought some cards that I didn't really need and slunk out of the shop.
