Beautiful and from a fellow Londoner but how do we know his data are dependable?

I lived for a year at chelsea cloisters near kings road while doing crypto training for the Air Force. Then for four years in a small village between Banbury and Brackley. Do you know the area? I visit often.

Too much now seems like long ago for me Jeff! I know the area you mean and it's lovely but I don't know it well. I've lived in N.E. Scotland for the past 45 years. My Wife stayed for a while in Chelsea when she arrived in the UK (from S. Africa) You sure knew how to pick nice spots to live.

Oh! So that was you then - thought I recognised you! At that time my Wife had a flat on the Royal Mile (down the way from Tron Square) and I lived in the Uni residences at the Pollock Halls and we were both doing research in an MRC Unit in Buccleuch Place.

I was always at the Howard Hotel on Great Kings St. Just around the corner from "Marks and Sparks. Ain't it great to talk about something other than RCC?

Sorry adman - OK. I suggest the title "Serendipity" - what do you think? ;-)

While you were at the Howard Hotel, by 1972, we looked across to it from 50 yards away in our Georgian maindoor flat above the Unicorn antique shop.

Drinking a pint of Guinness and a Bitter Shandy for the lady......listening to Tony Blackburn on Radio One. I believe in 72 it was Cliff Richard singing "Congraulations"..............

Better stop now or MGS might throw his toys out of the pram :)
