Trying to drum up business?"How did you know D_M?"Could a natural rhythm - which some experts believe we all possess - be a cure for a variety of health problems?Some certainly think so.Musician Simon Lee, from Kent, is called on to teach drumming to patients with problems ranging from addiction to autism, and learning difficulties to mental health issues"http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7872043.stm?lss Tue 10 Feb 2009 12:41:00 GMT+1 Piper http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/02/are_you_using_your_car_less_th.shtml?page=89#comment26 D_M 2 4"Why give us the ability to comment here then tell us to do so on the rarely used iPM blog? Trying to drum up business?"I think you've hit the spot D_M.For what it's worth, I'd like to see an audience debate on iPM and it's purpose. I can't help feeling the programme's a bit lost at present.Not every week, but many, many, times the programme seems to have been on some sort of esoteric flight of fancy. If its' purpose really is that of a minority interest service provider then, the present scheduled slot is probably correct.I wonder?

Maybe I'll Google......some day.

Likewise the Volvo estate before it. We think the Russian petrol we bought in Poland killed it.

It was lifted yesterday.I will now be checking your posts verrrry carefully, Mr Pedant.

It's not my real name, though. David. Poor Sandusky is stuck with its name. It can't change it like I can mine.Please don't think I'm impersonating Sandusky. I'm not. I'm not a town in Ohio, honestly.I hope that's clear. I'd hate to become a number. Although when you're around David, everyone, even those in Portmeirion, know who Number One is.

I did investigate public transport, but that would take at least three changes and three hours each way. The hour and a quarter each way by car is simply the only option..."

Is it an anti social glass-box (behaviour) order, McNickle?I bet they're badges of honor where you come from.
