Getting confused a bit. Is it being suggested that Marilyn Monroe died as a virgin. :-S

I would like to have met two gentlemen who lived in Olney back in 18th century. One a lovely, gentle man who was a famous poet. The other a big and blustering man who was a slave ship captain in his earlier days and could swear and fight for England.

In later life, this unlikley couple were very close friends. Love to have joined them over a cup of tea in Olney - John Newton and William Cowper (pronounced cooper) :-) :-)

William Cowper was mad as a packet of wasps.
