Today Sandi mostly read from the Bible, she was alarmed to read that Leviticus 19 verse 19 states that you shouldn't wear two different types of thread together. She worried that Vicars who wear polyester wool mix shirts might be stonned by their congregation. The serious side of this conversation was - should we always accept literal truth? To discuss this and a tourists guide to Bratislava was Jack Klaff.

This is the EMail which won Tim's soiled clothing on Wednesday:

Dear Sandi,
In the Hamsphire Chronicle there was a news story about a farmer who had found some treasure burried in a field. Upon having a discussion about what to do with the loot, a huge argument ensued in the town hall, which was reported by the paper. And what was the treasure? 500 tins of World War 2 hair wax! It had been burried by a black marketeer! Tom (Winchester)
