  1. I was about to say “fantastic, now all we need is somebody to bring back Tin Can Alley”. But then I found it for �7.50 (that’s less than two pints of Stella!) in Argos.

Both were, I thought, rather disappointing – much more impressive was my neighbour’s punch-card programmed car. They should bring those back as a teaching aid, actually.
