Someone called Silk had cricket and rugby Englands caps, allegedly.

Kit Aitken (Housemaster, Col A) also played for Harlequins.

As Mr Bourne would declare

"Ooloo"

Just take it that he didn't have a wooden leg in his mother's (if he had one) womb.

Tractors - got sold to those green fellas Deere (as in Oh Deere).

Cars: No I didn't invent them - that was done in the last century by some clever geezers. Now an upmarket Mondeo
I merely grabbed the bits when they crashed at Goodwood

Thanks for the info - I didn't realise that Aston Martin cars were made in the Victorian era. Along with those Lambourghinis, I expect. They started out on tractors too. Never saw the link between tractors and flash sports cars - wonder if there is a missing link?

Odd you mention Goodwood - my uncle ran the motor racing circuit in the 60's and I met Brabham and Surtees among other boyhood heroes.

Talking of which..............

A friend of our has been looking for a property in Miami.

He telephoned the largest realty company, (estate agent), and asked what the housing market was like at the moment.

"Buoyant.................." came the immediate reply.

Saw Eric on TV the other evening on a pop programme.

Hasn't he aged ? :drinkers:

They had to change its name.

It's now called "House of the sinking sun"

I think you'll find that when The Animals did their recording in the sixties, they had to change a line or two ?

Any comment, RR ??

Since thios is the only communication method open to me, FWIW there is a PM to you answering that (politely, surprisingly) together with one to Spoonbill dated 14th Nov (beware surgery in Amersham - funny things come out of hospitals there), to JR today (don't stop taking the pills) and Simon K dated Feb 16th (answering a question about dinosaurs).

I've sent a message to Julian so don't be surprised if you get something totally out of date.
