I need some help here to understand this. My regional newspaper reported that 5000 fake magic wands had been seized by HM Customs. Does this mean real magic wands actually exist?

Karen Matthews the most hated mother in Britain
5 Posts Last Activity 22/12/2016View
Karen Matthews has done her time in prison for kidnapping her own daughter in 2008. She wants plastic surgery to change her face so that she can live unrecognised and in peace. Should she now be forgiven?
Death of Andrew Sachs on the 23rd November aged 86

I heard of the death recently of Andrew Sachs who played the part of the beloved and much abused Manuel in the Fawlty Towers series. He suffered many a "smack on head" by the praying mantis like Basil Fawlty. His "I know nothing" is a byword all over the world. Andrew had severe dementia the last four years of his life. Unassuming, and talented in many fields, he was also an accomplished photographer and playwright. So sad to see him go.
Black Friday - I've had enough!

Sitting watching breakfast news, and all the reports are about Black Friday! When did Christmas become all about the money? I love a bargain as much as anyone but each year it seems the spirit of Christmas is being overtaken by the money and the need to buy presents. What happened to the season of goodwill?

My local branch of Royal British Legion advertised for help selling poppies in a local 'superstore' and I volunteered four year ago and I have not regretted it for one moment. We share the time into blocks of 3 hours two people together and different times of the day, I met again friends and neighbours long lost and become close to other 'poppy' sellers. The public are so generous for the very worthwhile charity and I'm proud to help if only in a small way. Does anyone else help in this way?

Sad to read that Jill Gascoine is in the late stages of Alzheimer's disease - I used to love her in The Gentle Touch and C.A.T.S. Eyes when I was younger. Her partner, the actor Alfred Molina, has been speaking about it - it must be so awful watching a loved one slip away from you like this.

Male Contraception Breakthrough

At last! A contraceptive for Males. I wonder how that is going to change the demographics of the world. Still not thoroughly tried and tested, how many young men today would jump at the chance to make use of it?

Let's get fireworks banned from the general public... another dog died last night who was frightened to death. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/168663 If you agree, copy the link and vote to get the law changed! or maybe you disagree? Share your views with me ....

Strange goings on
There some strange things happening in this world. A British man has been found dead at Malaga Airport in Spain. He was discovered with his hands and feet bound with plastic ties, his trousers and pants round his ankles laying face down over a bench with a slice of ham on each buttock and his genitals in a can of tuna - this was reported in the news today! I wonder what Dixon of Dock Green ( Jack Warner) would have thought about this one?
