Peter, I won't make Jarvo jealous. I am a great fan of Jarvo's poetry; it's wonderful and it inspires me. I'd love to see Jarvo's work in print but I dodn't think he wishes to go down that line.

Golden Bear, I too remember the last whistle and running to Wallgate to try to catch the last bus. Yes, a long walk home when I missed it, as taxis were far too expensive!
