    Ps

    PS. I discovered today that rather then just tolerating the music of "Chess, The Musical", my wife actually enjoys it! (Especially the London Symphony Orchestra parts.) WE (and maybe White Elephant?) own the London version rather than the Broadway version, with Elaine Paige, Barbara Dickson and Murray Head. Now for Stephenson...

    I love Chess The Musical, I have seen 2 different productions of it...I believe there is another short season coming soon in Sydney.

    My favourite song is Quartet (A Model of Decorum)

    Twice, too

    I've seen it twice, too. Once a stage production with the Broadway cast in Wellington, New Zealand. Second time a couple of years ago in Sydney - an amateur production. It has just finished a season at the Theatre Royal - this version done by a Balmain group, BLOC (Balmain Light Opera Company). I thought about going but the tickets were over $60. Now the tickets for my forthcoming show are only $25!
    WE, all the best for that (now famous) intended date!!

    Sry to hear about that headache TCN's

    Try this right away and within a couple hours youll feel better & the headache wont come back at all. eat a whole bannana. yup-yup Believe it or not this will work for the worse headaches. Bannanas work even better than asprin. This is due to the potasium. Also within a couple days the worse backaches will go away if you eat bannanas 2-3 times a day.

    Try it out next time a headache comes onz- watch it melt away & youll even become more mentally stronger as well

    Had a good laugh with bus driver and other Pax (oops transport speak for passengers)

    Went to weight watchers.... lost .6 in the last two weeks.... not happy need to be more conscientious.

    Respect, Baz. Pleased to report that this information confirms the propriety of one of your HADBBAs.

    As for the other HADBBA(s)

    • More carpentry (cabinet wrecking making) in kitchen to build in dishwasher. Good daddy. I was happy with our previous dishwasher, but Renee didn't see the funny side.
    • Celebrated dad's 72nd. Damn good trifle with Grand Marnier at the bottom.
    • Played a move in Corro thread and promptly resigned.
    • Gave some advice to my brother about his impending motorbike purchase. As usual I was talking through my hat.
    • Brainstormed over great dot.com names to register. Most suggestions are unprintable and certainly not registerable!
    • Entered Freytag Checkmate Open Chess Tournament online.
