Ok, its not Friday and there's no Time Out section, so to lighten the mood as we approach 'stressy season' I thought we could play a game of 'Blankety Blank'.

Me too, I think. Was it figurative?

I don't think I've read Forward by John Stokdyk. Is it a book about going on with new website designs against all evidence it is a good idea?

(I assume you actually meant Foreword)

It's your own fault! Try not to ask dumb questions; and how many times must I tell you to hide the gin bottle?

......... Bottle of wine.

OK so that might sound absurd to anyone who started in this job <10 years ago, but it used to be fairly common!

...and pulled out a Yorkshireman, who was lucky compared to his three pals; one of whom lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. He used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When he got home, 'is Dad would thrash 'im to sleep with his belt!

But you try and tell the young people today that...

A new client came to see me today, oh boy
About his books, they didn't make the grade
And though the books were rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
I saw the fee I'd charge

He blew his nose in mild distress;
He didn't have the readies he'd need to pay
A look then flickered cross his face
I'd seen that face before
Now he'll do himself just using Accounting Web
