The biggest worry the TVNZ reporter had tonight was that the organisers had forgotten to ensure there were dunnies/loos for the crowds of people how will be there for hours.

Well, I don't know:   if exactly while the happy couple are tying the knot you can't be at the lathe heavily involved in screw cutting a triple start LH square thread nut to match a 5/16" OD screw, in a sticky bit of phosphor bronze of unknown origin, and still have joy in your heart somewhere deep down, well then, you're not trying very hard....

Bllooody 'Ell Dave Now there's a real 'blast' from the past. Haven't heard him mentioned for many a year - a truly 'one off' extraordinarily funny man.  I've never thought to look but I guess his stuff must be available on CD?

A friend had several LPs and we spent quite a few :lolb: evenings listening to his tales - that must have been the early seventies. Just after I met Sue he appeared at Lowestoft in a small theatre now long gone. The the place was packed and he had everyone in tears from his opening line to the last. One of the funniest evenings live entertainment we've ever been to.

Who on earth would want to hear about a wedding if Blaster was in full thrutch  ;)

We are hoping the rain does not reach this far north (though its supposed to) - we have a big RC event at the pond tomorrow. Rain would be a 'Royal' pain!

The wedding is causing quite a stir on this side of the pond as well. I was hoping for an invite but to no avail  :-[  :lolb:
