    Dennis, an interesting read. I have family in Manchester which was the primary decision to move here. It's not as cold as I expected it to be and the sun did come out a few times. I hope we have a summer.

    On a quiz show just now -

    Quiz Host: Who was the captain of the Nautilus in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea?

    a) Ahab
    b) Nemo
    c) Captain Flint


    Contestant: Well it's not Nemo and I don't think it's Ahab... Captain Flint?

    Mike, Russ, never heard of the Before Trilogy, and I don't think I've seen the After Trilogy either. Some Criterion titles are starting pop up in the UK too finally, a bit expensive but the prices do drop after a few months.

    Elizabeth, I'm hoping to see Furious 8 some time next week. It looks spectacular and they might have jumped the shark with scenes of cars being chased by a huge submarine, I heard the next one is set in space. It grossed half a billion dollars worldwide in it's first 3 days, so it doesn't look like people are fed up with the series yet. But how normal that first film looks after the increasingly over the top sequels! :)

    Nemo was a nobody.

    My reading has uncovered an interesting fact about voting in Britain. University graduates once got to cast two votes. This privilege was only abolished by the Representation of the People Act in 1948. Prior to that date holding a degree really was an advantage.

    The Representation of the People Act of 1918 had another good idea. Candidates had to deposit 150 GBP which they forfeited if they failed to get at least 1/8 of the votes cast. This really must have cut down on fringe candidates as that was a considerable sum in those days.

    Well, I'm running down the road
    tryin' to loosen my load
    I've got seven women on
    my mind,
    Four that wanna own me,
    Two that wanna stone me,
    One says she's a friend of mine
    Take It easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels
    drive you crazy
    Lighten up while you still can
    don't even try to understand
    Just find a place to make your stand
    and take it easy
    Well, I'm a standing on a corner
    in Winslow, Arizona
    and such a fine sight to see
    It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
    Ford slowin' down to take a look at me
    Come on, baby, don't say maybe
    I gotta know if your sweet love is
    gonna save me
    We may lose and we may win though
    we will never be here again
    so open up, I'm climbin' in,
    so take it easy
    Well I'm running down the road trying to loosen
    my load, got a world of trouble on my mind
    lookin' for a lover who won't blow my
    cover, she's so hard to find
    Take it easy, take it easy
    don't let the sound of your own
    wheels make you crazy
    come on baby, don't say maybe
    I gotta know if your sweet love is
    gonna save me, oh oh oh
    Oh we got it easy
    We oughta take it easy
