What a lovely part of th...

Re: Tunnels and Chemicals

Ta, muchly, Simon. I spent plenty of memorable time in Nigeria trying to sort out their default and in Brazil trying to sort out Nigeria's default and in London trying to sort out Brazil's default. Now if I had known it was you I'd have asked to be excused Lagos duty; that was even worse than CH. M...

Re: Tunnels and Chemicals

Financial wizard, not genius. I wave my magic wand and another country defaults and we all write of 2 grillion dollars and then go and do it all again.

Certainly no swimming costume until you could swim the 5 lengths; I can't remember about the dive. More interesting was the annual summer visit to the beach near Bognor Regis; I'll allow the "ladies" maginations to run riot! As for the gym; can't remember any splinters but 2 memories stick out: bask...

You didn't get seriously hurt because you were fit; your muscles etc. could take the strain / bumps. You either b...
