  1. "Close to the Enemy" sounds good. I seem to be on a big WW2 kick right now. Can't get enough of that era and its stories and history.

    2. I don't have the patience for dealing with the public and who knows what kind of nasties come into a hotel. I couldn't work in one!

  4. 'Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gunpowder, treason and plot?' My mind immediately goes to V for Vendetta when hearing that line. Loved that movie.
