I have joined my local independent 'arthouse' style cinema in an attempt to see more films that my family don't want to see. Or - as my daughter gets older - that my husband and son have no wish to see. And the following plan works quite well: some Saturdays my husband and son go to the football, my...

I'm champing at the bit to know whether one can get a refund from the cinema on the basis of hating the film!

Am I alone in this?

I didn't mention that she had quite a deprived childhood including spending 9 months in hospital with the medievally named St Vitus' Dance. At one point she was partially paralysed.

Thanks for all the Beryl stories.

BTW, forgot to mention that perhaps these appearance-conscious young women should be told that cycling is good for the figure. My barnet may resemble a gale-ravaged haystack, but my stomach is admirably flat, and I have been known to flaunt it! And that's just from about 12 miles a week getting aro...

Thank you.

Yep... and that must be why there's been a big drop off in questions about factor 50 lotion... :wink: It's on half-price sale at the moment and I've just bought enough t...

Kwackers, I can only echo what others have said: you do deserve credit! As for circumstances becoming ... ahem .... favourable (to cycling!), remember, "There is nothing as powerful as an idea whose time has come." Victor Hugo One of my favourite quotes. So: well done to you. And your boss...

I have already signed this some time back, but we should keep 'bumping' it to make sure that lots of folks get to see it.
