This is not a funny link, but a very interesting music/video source. I strongly recommend you have a look at it.

Seconded. YouTube has a ten minute limit but this seems to have no time limit - I'm now listening to a 36 minute concert from Houston in very good quality sound.
Thanks Philip

Christie is my niece and will be on BBC Breakfast next Monday to talk about her experiences.

Kerren will probably understand some of this, and I only have to take my glasses off to understand another part.

I should have volunteered, a week without texts asking for money (student son) and lifts hither and yon (everyone else) BLISS

This is a joke. At least once a month we receive mail for No 66 or they receive mail for us (no 68) not just handwritten but printed.

One day I received 4 pieces of mail for next door - when I checked the post office box of the return address is was a debt collection company. The original bills had probably been delivered to the incorrect address as well!

Sorry ! ---- I don't read the Sunday Times !

Apropos "Mummy tell me a story" -- I have been reminded by my sons (In their 50s) of the bed-time story, which they still remember.

It always started "Adolphus was an elephant, and he lived in High Wycombe, every morning he caught the 8. 30 train to London ----"

He had numerous adventures, made up as the story went alomg ---- one of their favourites was when he missed his train and finished up in a Circus ---

I am now told I must continue the saga, for our latest Grandson Josh, who is 2.5 ! :oops:

Perhaps we should have a Topic, on favourite bed-time stories ?

Yes, of course, now that the NTW is no longer extant --- where can we look for "Fairy-Tales" ??
