At 90, I walk my lurcher twice a day (1.5 miles minimum), do the cryptic crossword (93% success this year), take more than two services a month at Methodist churches, preach once a month in my parish church, and am looking forward to the annual Wainwright challenge (climbing 2,176ft Tarn Crag) and the reopening of our village youth club (Letters, 21 June). My God is being good to me!

• In 1954, Picasso taught me an infallible cure for hiccups (Report, 18 June). With your right hand, grip a (preferably rusty) knife, knuckles turned inwards. In your left hand hold a tumbler half full of water. Carefully place the knife into the glass and, raising both elbows as high as possible, sip the water slowly. No more hiccups.
