When You Give Your Dog A Nicely Alliterative Name....



...and the 'Evening Standard' headline writer mangles it on his one moment of fame.

Jools, sorry for the 'spam' but I have been asked by Anne Raccoon to let everyone know that she is not a well gal atm and will be off games for a while. Her blog will be closed/comments turned off (amazingly Mr . G managed that!) for a while. As several of your readers also read her blog, i thought posting here might be a good idea.

Ha ha ha, Julia! Love it!

And another recent headline was that the various whingers were blaming the prison stabbings on 'Staff cuts'!

Had a text from the Raccoon today, it seems she is on the mend again (if someone with terminal cancer can ever be said to be 'on the mend') and even hopes to be out of hospital in the near future.

I'm hoping she can train G to put up a proper 'Off getting medicalised' notice on the blog itself in future. That would be better all round than getting the odd regular to post notices around the global village that is the intraweb.

(and Gareth, no need to apologise, The Arms can get a bit 'rough n tumble' after last orders, part of it's charm.)

Excellent news!
