My Holy Grail is a burner that when immersed in water goes out instantly
without leaving any residue in the water that might stain or taint. So far,
the little candles are my best shot.
(When I went up to the University, I was rostered to light the candles in
the ancient college chapel. I was very anxious about this and asked the
chaplain about their significance. "To light up the chapel" he said
cheerfully, "it'll be dark by Evening Prayer". Went back there last
Saturday with No4 Sprog. It was as though I'd only been away a week.)
