Dear Milkman.  My wife has just had a baby.  Please leave another one.

(Note on doorstep for Milkman.)
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 want to be a glow worm. A glow worm's never glum. How can you be sad when the sun shines out your bum! :D

...how do you lose a pony? Did she misplace it somewhere? I hope she checked her other coat pocket; that would just be embarrassing.
