I've just read, for the first time, Helen McInnes' book 'Above Suspicion'.

A young married couple become entangled in Nazi intrigues just after the Germans have taken over Austria.

The book is very detailed about the German menace, how quickly life became dangerous, and also how brave some Austrians were in helping absolute strangers whose lives were in danger.

Oh yes, it was set in and around Pertisau for a good deal of the action.

A certain edge when she spoke of Mrs Maynard, certainly, but, after all, not everyone could love Joey.

I find this influx of Korean(?) spam mildly amusing. :dontknow:

I'm worse! I work doing internet orders and names and addresses invariably get me thinking " I wonder if they're related to so-and-so? - books AND musicals!!! :dontknow: :lol:


Yes I do that with patients. Lots of ours join from friend and family recommendation, as we don’t really do much advertising. So I’m quite used to seeing a name and wondering whether they are connected to each other - can’t ask unless they say, with patient confidentiality.

So I often spend half the test of a Chalet School name thinking, I wonder if they are related to... then realising NO, they won’t be. :banghead:
