    What a design of genius that was. A double-decker ( I almost put Double Decca) bus that could go under low bridges, with a central gangway upstairs instead of a channel which had the by-product of a part-lowered roof on the lower deck and the 'lower your head when leaving your seat' notice, which led to many bumped pates.

    I notice that yesterday the forum broke another record too: over 500 posts in one day (515 in fact). Is there something going on I should be told about?

    In recognition of the link between music and mathematics you should be lauding the 1024th new member. I'm sure you know why.
