Do you seek guidance in your life, let Yorkshiresoul help you

Sortes (Latin), The seeking of guidance by the chance selection of a passage in a book.

This sounds brilliant, if you have problems, if your life isn't going quite as you would like it, if you face a difficult choice today, just relax as I pull a random book from my extensive collection and allow the knowledge and wisdom contained therein to illuminate your life and make your path clear and obvious...

Right then, today's store of knowledge and wisdom is The Shipping News by E Annie Proulx, let's open it up at a random page, stab at a paragraph, here we go, the solution to all today's problems is nigh...

"It was an infamous craft they said would drown him one time.  On the way back he skirted a small iceberg drifting down the bay.  Curious about the thing, a lean piece of ice riddled with arches and caves.  But big as a bingo hall."

There you go then, I do hope that has made everything much clearer for you, the fog has lifted and your road is clearly marked.  On the other hand, if it turns out to be bollocks, blame Annie Proulx and we'll try another book tomorrow.
