Ding dong the witch is dead

Hello everyone,

Sorry I have been in poor contact - my phone is being repaired and our internet has been down for most of the last week. Makes it awfully hard to stay in touch - it took me 14 hours after the fact to find out that Margaret Thatcher had died.

Speaking of which, loved this article today: apparently Judy Garland's 'Ding Dong the Witch is Dead' song from the Wizard of Oz is racing up the UK singles chart following her passing.

However, one quote from Thatcher finds her getting one over me (and Mark) from beyond the grave: when questioned in parliament about how her privatisation of public transport in London had caused major price rises and endangered livelihoods, she replied that "any man who finds himself on a bus at the age of 26 can account himself a failure."

Thanks Maggie!
