      LA Story has some hilarious scenes, like this guy accosting them with a gun on the mall, saying, 'Hi, I'm your robber for the night! '

      i liked the part where caine was hitting him with the stick to test the feeling in his legs, he really gave it everything he had and steve martin never blinked or cryed out till he left the room

    Blues Brothers is a classic of the era, any era. I still crack up when the get-away car falls to bits, when (they) get out and slam the doors. Just brilliant.

    Does anyone using the 'email this to a friend' facility (?) find that it does a U-turn on the way and comes back as from friend to you? It's happened twice to me in the last few days...

      I haven't used that one, but the Poetry Cards (can be sent with any poem) are really nice, unless the lines are extremely long!

    ps.. if you decide to copy and paste from here - remember to delet the space that PH places after the http: _

    Just like the double 'p' that dogs the word 'drop' dometimes - it's one of those gremlins on this site.

    Greetings Movers and Shakers! May be, just may be we've seen and read the last of England's Paul. 'I have a dream! ' All that aside, here's another mind-blowing Mal Morgan poem. Tissues are provided free. Cheers, Jerry


    You do up your face go out.
    Have a nice day.
    I and the dog
    the hebe blue gem
    the salvia sublime red
    which I havde watered earnestly
    my faded flags
    all my streaming colours
    on the clothsline
    wait for you to come home
    liberated, your face undone.
    Remember me
    as the man who once said
    I knew a man who lived a perfect day.
    It was in the sixties
    now it's the nineties.
    The sixties are coming.

      I can see why Mal was a friend. A depth meter wouldn't go astray with either of your minds. Best H
