Re: Mc D's are back.

Don't believe the council hype. This happens every summer, the current council are incapable of dealing with it. If you say so. Indeed. The beach is eight miles long.

Re: Olympus quits camera business after 84 years

A few years ago Minolta also dropped out of the camera market. They'd been making consistently high quality cameras for many years. Kodak also stopped making cameras after more than a hundred years.

[ A place of which Samuel Johnson said 'The noblest prospect which a Scotchman ever sees, is the high road that leads him to England.'
