New Lift saga has taken an unexpected turn today.
We were surprised, this morning, to find that The first New Lift is now working, and very smooooth it is too.
Sadly there was no grand launch party, or anything of that sort. Perhaps this is because it was, apparently, ready weeks ago, but a flat ceiling had been installed when the plans called for a curved one.
Obviously the new lift couldn't be used without a curved ceiling.
 Those of a more "New World" disposition might like to substitute "elevator" for "lift".
