Annie Caulfield was Sandi's right hand woman. Neil, Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Innes came in and happened to mention a new DVD 'Do Not Adjust Your Set' available in all good stores now.

And now those wholesome Christian games in full:

'Credo' a lot of religious philosophers hang around in rooms, for instance is it a Jewish philospher in the library with the Torah?

'Pin the nose on the leper' very bad taste and we all disaproved of that one.

'Pass the Pharacy' you wrap a religious leader up in a lot of paper and pass them around, when the holy music stops, whoever's holding the Pharacy gets to unwrap a layer.

TOPICS TODAY: Death by Z bed, Edited reality, Kermit the frog at fifty and your favourite roads, things about Tuesday and Victorian London in all its stinky, rude splendour.

Jack Klaff was crouching by home base and at first base Melissa Rossi author of The Armchair Diplomat on Europe (Penguin) told Sandi about Americans attitude to foreign countries - 'where are they? and can we build a McDonalds* on them.' The delightful Liza Picard revealed the dirty truth about Victorian London and Jack Klaff spoke of his mother-in-laws chest.

*Or Burger King or a branch of Sears etc etc

Monday 8th August - 'Samantha had two Dicks together' - Sandi (Talking about the TV show Bewitched)

TOPICS TODAY: Why air stewards can't tell fish from chicken, (see cartoon) donkeys in the news, cows with cataracts.
