Some thanks

Okay - first up.

Thanks to anyone still hanging around here wondering whether or not I'm ever going to post again.

Thanks to those who have mailed me to ask if I'm okay.

No thanks to the bloke who drove into me on the roundabout on the way home tonight but thanks to Charles Clarke for giving me a giggle while trying to balance the call for biometric ID cards with the idea that, despite having people banged up, he administered a system which failed to deport known criminals.

But the biggest thanks have to go to Two Jags. When those of us who are of a certain age and shape see young, fit guys enjoying the company of ladies we tend to nod and accept that this is the natural order but when we see John Prescott, a man who even he himself wouldn't describe as a young Adonis, being hounded because he's been courting an attractive young lady it gives us all hope - however fleeting and brief. The natural order has been attacked, the fat bloke got the girl - albeit because of power and politics and that should be something we all celebrate shouldn't it?

Marathon and on and on.

Don't forget to sponsor Gill in the London marathon - the money is for a good cause (great cause actually). If you drink just think of it as the price of a few beers or a few peach martinis. If you smoke donate the price of a day's ciggies. If you work how about an hour's pay and if you drive how about a couple of gallons of petrol. The Children's Society do some amazing things for people who need stuf and help far more than most of us - go on, you know it makes sense and the more good you do in life the more good you get back.
