    every GF I used to put away a few hundred to use later in the year (other people have wine cellars)

    Paul, my brain and I have to apologise for having read that as 'every girlfriend'...

  • Southerly: Nine Months of Baby Hell,

    Wow, that takes gloating to a whole new level. I'm sending the link to all my American friends right away.

    As an antedote, you may wish to consider The Toronto Song. It even has banjos. Though possibly not enough for Bob.

    The War of 1812. This is a favourite for family car trips.

    Thanks for the tip about 'Saturday Night Fry'.

    Having checked with the Chap, those apparently came from, and I'm quoting here, "some guy". So they may be hard to find. Or, you know, the next time you're in our house with some digital media and the governor general or a librarian...

    Mighty Boosh... watched it this week and it took me places.

    Know what you mean, dude.

    To my embarrassment, I just never got into that. All my friends like it...

    And I did like Alas Smith and Jones as much as some of the other stuff, and more than Reeves and Mortimer, in that it wasn't always brilliant, or even good, but 'Hello, I'm Joanna Lumley' has stuck in my head for what must be over a decade now.

    And, yes, aren't Armstrong & Miller fantastic! Did you know that Ben Miller gave up a Ph.D. in quantum mechanics in order to move sideways into comedy. Can't really blame him.

    What nearly put me off was having seen Alexander Armstrong in so much, oh what's the word, shite.

    And while you're at the Beeb, their Friday Night comedy podcast is also brilliant.

    Mel Smith and Gryff Rhys Jones?

    And that is the very sketch, seen by accident while channel-surfing, which got me on to Armstrong and Miller.

    You can download Saturday Night Fry from the Beeb - the radio show which is basically just Fry, Laurie and Thompson being increasingly surreal.

    as long as the water is carried by a series of tubes. then your upload can get deliveried via a fat pipe.

    So, in conclusion, Craig's house is just a massive bong?

    a) Womens' (Womyns') Sufferage = Isle of Man 1820

    Pff, women in New Jersey had the right to vote explicitly removed in 1807.

    And the people who bought negatively geared investment properties will have to find a way to hang on or give up and sell for what they can get.

    We just spent the weekend in Hanmer. It's for sale. Entire streets of people's holiday homes being offloaded. And yet, they're still ridiculously over-priced.

  • Hard News: Moments,

    It would now be useful to know what the actual consequences of domestic violence are, for all those involved.

    That's a big, big question, Steven. Obviously it's different for everyone: every situation is different, every individual reacts differently. And how do you know if, twenty years down the track, someone's inability to form a stable relationship, say, is a consequence of abuse they suffered or witnessed as a child?

    It certainly wouldn't make for a very punchy or effective message. But I do think it is worth talking about.
