Goodbye to All That: Robert Graves
Reading it again, just because I've just read a biography of W.H.R Rivers by Richard Slobodin and he's mentioned in that.

Re: D you have a pet?

We have a very large, grumpy rabbit, who is quite old in rabbit terms at 7.
He's got a very definite personality and deeply devoted to my wife, I think he sees me as a rival ::):

Re: Sad News

I haven't been on here in a long while and have just come across this.
I never met Josef personally, my interaction with him was via PMs and it was always enjoyable to debate with him.

Re: 'Style Mile' Monstrosity

Mmmm I wonder if they still use brown envelopes or do they create a company, who creates another company, who creates another company offshore in some far flung destination and then pays money in via BACS which goes to a holding company on behalf of another 'charitable' organisation who then loans ...

Re: 'Style Mile' Monstrosity

From the illustration, it looks totally out of proportion to the adjoining buildings. You wonder why GCC Planning would pass it, at all.
There seems to be an addiction amongst designers for these glass and metal monstrosities.
