Do you ever sleep, Daniel?  Or do you take your work home with you?  We DO appreciate your continued input - but I also worry that you are always there:  Open the Chardonnay, for goodness sake, and chill out for a bit (Please).

Jimmy Jewel rings a bell.   Warris doesn't, though.

Hello Daniel - and thanks for the continued support and changes that have already made a real difference.

Just wondering about your crystal ball, however.  "detailed feedback you've given tomorrow"???  Hmmmm.  Oh to understand the complexities of the English Language and syntax, eh? 

(sorry - couldn't resist!)

Good one Malcolm.  But just wondering - who are/were "Jewel and Warriss"?  Not names I recognise, I'm afraid.

PP - what a joy it is to smile and see the funny side of life!  There's too much negative day by day, and, like you, having discovered this thread, I have had a permanent grin on my face!

I read today PP that talking to yourself out loud is a sign of intelligence.

There once was a lady called Vi

Who chatted out loud and said "hi"

to her image in glass

though she talked out her a***

And thought she was of IQ quite  high.

Oh, what joy!  No longer having to scroll down acres of wasted space!  Lovely. Now - if we could only be able to go to "last unread post" my cup would "runneth over".

There is  a young man who's called Dan

Of whom I am really a fan.

He answers us all

And is not known to call

old and unreconstructed who don't understand how to rhyme or scan "idiots"
