That's a good age. I think I must be in a small minority then because I've never seen The Sound of Music. I'm not and never have been a fan of musicals. 

Edited to add, that will be me and James then Smile

   FOUR.    maybe a snippet and an about turn is as much as I have given it.

               I can never get on with a film where folk burst into song, not natural to me- Hey I even prefer songs without words!

  Think a pattern is forming here, a character trait for POE members emerging.

             John , I have found said pics today but will need to get them transferred from slide to disc so it will be a while yet. You may not like them but will be well interested.

Bob Crow died today 11th March 2014.  He was leader of the Rail & Maritime Trade Union.  A fine man who served the interest of British working class people.  It is to Bob and people like him that we owe so much.  A hero of the working classes who tried so hard to prevent workers being crushed by the dictatorship.  Rest in peace.

Its been some 30 hours plus since I posted the above.  Its really heart warming to see all the working class members sticking together and offering some gratitude for the work of Bob Crow.

Without Bob and other union workers you would be working for £2 a week, doffing your cap to the masters, dying young due to no safety at work whilst your 14 year old son's are shoved up chimneys as sweeps.  

Working class ?  don't make me laugh.  At this rate we will have five more years of Cameron as the disabled are kicked in to ditches and left to starve.  Of course you will not become sick or unemployed and visiting food charity banks ?

Disgusted.
