  3. I sincrely hope that when Phil the greek pegs it he comes out with the ultimate on-liner as his last words that are immortalised immediately! Will be a truly sad day when he departs us! Best of wishes!

  4. Sadly I guessed something was amiss when Her Majesty did not make an appearance at the Olympic closing ceremony. I said to the missus here "somebody must be ill if HM's not there."

    Hopefully he'll make a quick recovery.

  15. I fear that it is rapidly becoming apparent that there is more than meets the eye to these repeated "precautionary measures," the man is 91 years old after all.
