    at such short notice. For one thing, he owes me a salt beef on rye with pickle and a portion of potato salad and a can of cola from a certain department store on Oxford Street which shall remain nameless for security reasons. He can also buy me a cake from Konditor and Cook for me to take away and eat privately at my leisure and a packet of Reece's peanut butter cups which I find most satisfactory, these days.

    Also, I have a bottle of Absinthe if he wants it.

    If any of you are in touch with him will you please pass on this news?

    Thank you.

    PS are any of you subscribers to Times Online?

    PPS Private Eye did NOT publish in today's edition my important news about a certain Broadcasting Corporation and a certain board, again, I shall name neither for security reasons.

    Your co-operation is appreciated.

    Good morning, Sir C.

    I agree: mentalas cannot go.
    I sense he is much missed already.

    Well, I can help. For I have one particular messenger in mind, an excellent friend.
    He is first man for the job.

    But perhaps contact has already been made?
    If so, just say.

    Thanking you,

    PS: No, not yet...
    PPS: We await developments.

    Your discretion is most apt.

    PP. Thank you, but I see he has launched a comeback tour.

    He'll be wearing a toupee and singing "My Way" before we know it.

    May as well forget the Salt Beef.

    No worries, Sir C.
    Hope all is well with you.
    I subscribed to The Times online yesterday, and tomorrow I hope to draft a letter to my MP. I'll keep people informed of developments...

    Clicks heels together, loses balance and crashes onto sofa.

    That was your fault.

    PP, your Times subscription news is excellent

    I used to buy the Times most days, but refused to PAY to read it online.

    I have been hacked off by its ever-more rightwing attitude in recent months and am trying to wean myself off it with mixed feelings.

    Yesterday's Guardian had a story about Prince, who is a full-blown Jehovah's Witness and likes being given one option only in Islamic countries.

    Anyway, I used to make the below all the time, and have it for breakfast and seve it to Leg-iron in the now defunkt PV, or is it the other way round, serve it to the defunkt Leg-iron in the POV - I forget.

    But I have lost the recipe,

    I used

    300ml milk
    4 eggs
    butter cherries etc

    But I can't remember how much flour and how much sugar was involved.

    I wonder if you would be kind enough to look at the recipe and tell me how much, I should use. think one was 100g and the other was 50g.

    I explained my dilemma to a friend who stayed a few weeks ago but he blew a gasket, called me a stupid old fs jfapf fhosjdqueen et and said but there are hundreds of recipes for clafoutis on the internet.

    He couldnot listed. He did not understand. He did not know how.

    Starts singing "Vincent".

    Anyway, would you be kind enough to help me?

    Much depends on it.

    Thank you.


    Her recipes are good, I think.

    "It looks temptingly bouffant"

    I was temptingly bouffant when I was younger. Sigh.

    Good Day, Sir C

    Yes, must keep up with the news. I do think it's a bit cheeky to have to pay, especially as other papers are free, so I'll probably dip in and out of the Guardian too...
    I don't know politics as well as I should, but I am gaining ground. I read recently the Green party's plans for the NHS, and thought them most sound, but a friend pointed out that it is one thing to have noble thoughts, and another to shoulder the burden of responsibility. I thought this quite wise...

    *waves to pete*
