  1. I am desperately sorry to read this. My thoughts with you.
  2. I am sure there are others who could do that. He had many friends. I will just say that he was witty, colossally intelligent, had an anarchic sense of humour, and was pretty much unbiddable If you were his friend you had to take him as you found him, but it was worth it. He has left a hollow in my world at any rate. And since I'm posting on this forum, I'll say that he was also a Zep scholar. Thanks for reading.

  4. Well,whoever he turns up with, I have my ticket.

You know you should have walked home.

  10. Seeing any of them play,in any form or indeed format,is worth everything. "gonna miss me when I'm gone". (apologies to the Dead) Red wine can induce melancholy on occasion.
  11. Hello back, Aquamarine! I think the implication was the US would only be happy if it were top of the medals table, and I was indulging in an ill-mannered smirk. Very base behaviour. Hope you're well!
  12. Nicely said Hang-man. How are you doing?
  13. Boris Johnson isn't a comic genius; simply a journalist well versed in writing witty little sketches. How he'll manage his responsibilities is another matter entirely. Show me a Tory and I'll show you a...well, never mind. Apologies for the threadjack, I really enjoyed watching Jimmy and Leona!
