  • Southerly: A Very Short Stroll Through…,

    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.

    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.

    Pssst: I don't know if you guys were aware of this, but often, an offer to see someone's etchings means you end up examining *so much more* than you bargained for...

    Or so much less. I quite like etchings.

  • Island Life: Get over it,

    Umm. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't using candles and kerosene lamps for lighting be worse for the environment then the equivalent wattage of electric lighting. Kerosene and paraffin are both derived from fossil fuels ...
