We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Ken Barmy's been telling me about a Doctor Who event in one of his libraries. "More daleks than Doctor Zhivago!" he says.

We used to have a big dalek in the foyer at Grimley Library. It was useful for keeping the rough trade out of the library (staff would hide inside and say 'Ex-term-in-ate!'). I wonder whatever happened to that.

"More daleks than Doctor Zhivago!" That's a comedy line beyond even Spike Milligan on acid. I think Ken's missed his calling in life.

Absolutely! Three cheers for Ken Barmy; I think I love him. Tell him I have already used his line, and I think I got away with it. Mrs P xxxx

Tell Ken I love him too. (What a choice!)

What is a dalek? Once again my limited intellect fails to measure up to your cultural or linguistic references.

A dalek's a sort of big pepperpot on wheels with a bad attitude, Lavinia.

I won't tell Ken that everyone loves him, it'll only turn his head.
