or you could see the "other" K7, K777 near replica on www.youtube.com/watch?v=ju52_kDSfSQ . Needs more ping-pong balls methinks.  Wonder if it will appear at the Speed Week this year.   Details on www.k777club.com

I don't understand this one at all...................is this a totally scratch built replica or is it the original K7 that was raised from Coniston some time ago and which is being restored..............I must read on.

Great actor - I was impressed by his performance in 'Green Mile'.

I wouldn't normally have bought a DVD of a Stephen King film but
'Green Mile' had Tom Hanks starring. (He's a favourite actor of mine)  

The film and the acting were really top notch.

Tom Hanks is also one of my favourite actors... although I've not been impressed with his recent efforts.... apart from the Toy Story series!

My favourite Michael Clarke Duncan film is Armageddon:

Bear: Just for the record, this is a very bad idea!

Bear: [sobbing in front of Dr. Banks] I am not crazy! I'm just a little emotional right now, ok? Ya'll throwing all this stuff at me, man! Look, I mean, after this is over, can I like get a hug from you or something?   {-)

Interesting read with some valid points, but the closing line is just the perfect tool for politicians and despots everywhere - 'If we canít have a decent debate, is that debate worth having to begin with?'

And the question that then arises is "What is a decent debate?"  followed by "Who decides?".

The nature of debate is that it is difficult to stifle completely.
Hitler and others had thrir limited spheres of influence and that was pre the I.T explosion.
Debate continued in the UK and America.

More like Frank Carson to me - but I'm very impressed by the disembodied head of Richard Chartres applying for a job.

Hijacking the lookalikes - has anybody seen the promo ads for the new wheeler dealer series?  Does anybody else think that Mr Brewer, while trying to be John Travolta, winds up looking like an over animated T J Hooker (Captain Kirk when he was combining being a cop and balancing an inappropriate wig)?
