Such great news, really happy for you. Onwards and upwards chuck

Gaspar Sletts: (Michael Palin) (Also not giggling) I did.

Defense: (Eric Idle) (Not giggling, too) May I just explain, m'lud, that the reason for my clients behavior was that his wife had died that morning? (This elicits big laughs. Judge bangs gavel again)

Judge: (Graham Chapman) (laughing) I sentence you to be hanged by the neck until you cheer up.

Father Jack would have approved ...

I know what you mean about the Irish Sea though. Same goes for the North Atlantic as well, as many a summer holiday in Portballintrae taught me very early on

My three sisters are visiting from Oz, they came over for my 'ending in a zero' birthday. Two are leaving in the morning and we all went to dinner and drinks in the sunny garden of a nice pub. It was very smile-worthy
