John Clease - allegedly - used to tell a story about his American wife.  She came running in, a bit flustered, "John, John.  The cat's just gone to the bathroom in the kitchen!"

"What the hell are you on about, Woman?  We don't have a bathroom in the kitchen."

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

I can remember the old "fair suck of the sav" saying when I was growing up. Just meant "You are kidding me aren't you."

I think a lot of the English language stayed in Oz after you shackled the best you had and sent them to the Land of Milk and Honey.  ;D ;D
