    Skype

    We use it at work to communicate with homeworkers. One thing to bear in mind is that it's pretty much unusable if you don't have broadband. (For the voice part - it's got a message client as well)

    "The Queen" at the Areas

    I don't think that the National Anthem is associated with racism, the reason I don't like it is because it's associated with the monarchy and I'm a republican!

    Do you believe in God?

    No - for many reasons. But, for those who do, could they answer this - According to the Old Testament (I think, it's a while since I was at school), God created Adam and Eve, and therefore every human being on the planet is descended from two people. With what we now about genetics, it is a...

    Tax Returns

    It's not necessarily a bad thing - if you pay 40% tax and have a pension you get a nice rebate each year. You can also get some money back if you do business related travel in a personal car. I like the tax man!

    Who is the most frightening driver on our roads?

    Sums up the attitude of most lorry drivers I come across these days! Pulling out on motorways with 1 flash of an indicator, driving up your backside when you're obeying speed limits in roadworks etc etc etc.

    Fox hunting?

    You say that you value democracy and then complain about a bill that has been voted through the House Of Commons (several times, don't get me started on the House Of Lords) by a majority of directly elected MP's on a free vote. If that's not democracy then I don't know what is. If you disagree...

    Book Club?

    Have to agreee with most people above - Iain M Banks/Peter F Hamilton/Alastair Reynolds are all great. There's always the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov, found it a bit of hard work to get into, but well worth the effort. Avoid the Shannara series of books by Terry Brooks at all costs -...

    Marching...hoe do you do yours?

    Can normally manage OK, although I'm quite tall, so if we don't go fast enough I end up mincing down the road in tiny steps :!: Was weaving from side to side by the end of the night though, can't think why :guiness

    Highlights of the Evening

    Should have made clear I was part of the band doing the singing. :D Now work out who I am Maggie :!:

    Highlights of the Evening

    Apart from the whole thing (first Whit Friday) it has to be the Swiss guys in the band singing in the contest march at Denshaw. Heard a rumour Derek Broadbent was adjudicating there - it was his music - bonus points :?:

    Fuel Prices

    I might be in a minority here, but the price of petrol doesn't bother me in the slightest. I pay tax, it so happens that some of it comes from petrol. If people don't like it they should buy a smaller car. I'll be a lot more annoyed if the (so-called) People's Fuel Lobby start blocking things...

    Who make the better drivers...men or women?

    Not sure about the gender thing... but I know that BMW drivers are the worst (closely followed by anyone in a white van)
