Thanks for your information, I would have thought that the council would be on to this if they want people to visit Lewis!! We will not be shopping there again.

It's about a 10 hour drive to Lewis, so I doubt if I will either.

Respect TP. I suspect that, with several breaks, it would take me double that. I would like to go there, but not for the shopping.

You probably would imagine that, but I said poetry, not adolescent doggerel.

I could point you in the direction of my latest best seller, "Double Glazing and the Rage for Truth". I did see a dog eared copy in Help the Aged about thirty years ago, it's probably still there.

I bought it - worth every penny of the 15p. But I made a killing at Christies - last copy in private hands.
I still remember the start of sonnet XXII:
Transparent couplings move me to much pane,
As cold calls neverending do I take.
My anger strong I cannot now contain;
Who knows which claims are true and which ones fake?

Amazing that you remembered it, IBM, I've forgotten it all and swapped my copy for a pint of Harveys in my wilderness years. Such is fame, or the lack of it. I now live in hope that my fickle mistress, the muse will return some day and rescue me from a Forum even more corrupt than that of Ancient Rome, where mighty Caesar kicked the bucket.
