I suspect we've all been there, too - not that that's any consolation. Wishing you something happy to balance things up, Minim.

I've just been looking at the Grammy Awards on MSN.

The men who were in black tie evening dress, and Tony Bennett who wore a tailored suit with a red tie, were fine.

The women's clothes lacked only two things - style and class. They'd obviously spent small fortunes on their clothes, but to me, it was money wasted.

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

*shrug* I guess it wasn't to them, which is really the thing that matters.

I put a bet on the Grand National purely because the jockey was called Davy Russell and have won £20 :D

I wish I'd noticed that the jockey was called Davy Russell, then I'd've picked that one too - mine seemed to give up with about 5 fences to go! Maybe he's Madge and Jem's great-grandson, named after his grandfather David?

I've not really watched much horse racing but any time I hear of a Russell or a Maynard anywhere I wonder if they could be a relation. :)

Yes, like the child in the memorial in Southwark Cathedral: "Mistris Margrit Maynard the daughter of Master John Maynard Minister of Mayfield in Susex [sic] who departed this life March the 14th 1653, being aged 13 yeares 10 months and 14 dayes"

The factory's new supplier in Coronation Street - which obviously is real - is called Bob Maynard.

Completely unrelated to the above, but I found this interesting (especially given the number of preganancies in the CS!)

Still amazed that Joey didn't noticed that Madge was "busy" with Sybil though!

Sometimes people don't know themselves that they're pregnant (even up to the point of birth!). :dontknow: An interesting link :) .

A friend of a friend felt ill a couple of months ago - and later that day produced a baby! She and her husband are thrilled, but were rather under-prepared!
