It's a small world!

Checking to see if there were any references on the web to my school's version of Sweeny Todd (this was in 1976, so it was more in hope than actually expecting to find something) I've just discovered that George Allegiah went to my school and his family are from Sri Lanka. And he went to my friend's college at Durham University.

Philately is the sincerest form of collecting stamps.

Here's a funny thing. Labour, Tories and Lib Dems are all "against" the local Post Office closures. One's in Government and is responsible for them closing, one plans to privatise the whole shooting match and the other party wants to put Post Offices back into the heart of the local community. Guess which crocodile tear shedding parties get the most local press coverage? C'est la Guerre!
