I think you can blame Augustus Caesar for two of the lost days.

Thirty days has September, April, June and November.
All the rest have thirty one excepting February alone Which
has but twenty eight days clear and twenty nine on each leap year.

I found myself hearing my brother's voice in my head saying ......

"Pull the other one, it has bells on it"

Apparently a saying he picked up when he was in the Sea Cadets, and always used whenever someone tried to pull the wool over his eyes :-D :-D


Kense Report 11 Feb 2019 11:34

I must admit I didn't twig straightaway. I assumed Bob typed Feb instead of March and that it was GR's plan to cope with a hard Brexit.


Island Report 11 Feb 2019 11:38

Oo you little lateral thinker you Ken :-D


nameslessone Report 11 Feb 2019 12:45

I keep expecting someone from Genes to add to the thread explaining wha is happening.

D C Thomson are making lots of money even allowing for Parragon Books. The Beano, BrightSolid and FMP are doing especially well. So long as GR runs a profit it will be safe if increasingly pointless.
