Kardashians? Had to look that word up I'm afraid! Sounded like another central Asian civil war brewing somewhere but I see that it's something to do with an American TV programme. Google says the ...

Blimey, Alan! There has certainly been some tripe dished up in the tabloids & elsewhere lately, admittedly catering for a pretty cerebrally challenged readership, shall we say, but this one takes ...

Five grand? That price surprises me Bill. I'd much rather see it deposited in an archive but, hopefully, you'll get that photocopy.
