  1. Love the Great Green Monster! I’ll post that for my facebook friends, if I may – some of them may look at f’bk before they go to Congregation at 2.00…

  2. There is an article in this weeks Sunday Times about this- they suggest taking one storey down- horse – bolted- etc

  3. Nice to see some humour in a totally depressing story – and now we know the outcome… the whips and whipping boys were out in numbers
