Mother in Law arrives home from shop to find her son in law Paddy in a steaming rage hurriedly packing his suitcase, What happened Paddy she asked anxiously?  What Happened? I'll tell you what happened. I sent her an e Mail telling her I was coming home from my fishing trip. I get home and guess what, I find your daughter Jean, my wife naked in bed with   Joe Murphy. This is unforgivable, the end of our marriage ,I'm done, leaving home..
Now calm down Paddy says Mother in Law, there's something odd going on here. Jean would never do such a thing, there must be an explanation, I'll go and speak with her and find out what  happened.
Moments later Mother in Law comes back with a big smile,  Paddy, I told you there was a simple explanation..

   "She never got your e Mail " ::)

We had a power outage at our house this morning and my PC, laptop,
cordless phone, and my new surround sound system shut down.
Then I discovered that my iPad and iPhone batteries  were flat, and to top it off it was raining outside so I couldn't play golf.
I went to the kitchen to make a coffee, then remembered that also needs power, So I sat down and talked to my wife for a while.
                     She seems like a nice person.

Talking about the pubs on Scotland St, brought to mind that I went to school with a boy named Bryan Downing who lived in one of the Pubs down there .  Cannot recall which it was as I was about 12/13 at the time (app,1939), and I do not see the name of a Publican of that name in the good book!..

Right! The murder rate in Midsomer has got to be the highest in the world based on population.
One sees all the various actors in most of the British TV shows seen here. whether it be Midsomer, Lewis ,Monarch of the Glen,, New tricks and   Wake the Dead . It must be a good business to be in, never out of work/
