Your Lupins Or Your Life


A forgotten catchphrase from a forgotten sketch from the increasingly forgotten troupe - Monty Python.

Working in an office full of youngsters, I do find that a mention of "I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition" is met by blank stares.

Damn.  Getting old.

Mrs Goldstein's Flower


Mrs Gloria Goldstein was inordinately proud of her abundant Chrysanthemums.
