"Thatcher's funeral brought London to a standstill." doesn't actually relate to the actual funeral at all when you click on it. It goes to the donations thread and so doesn't make sense.

And couldn't you have managed "Baroness". #notaredtop

Which paper?

What? Roads were closed, obviously, but rail, underground were fine. Standstill?

j08 Wed 17-Apr-13 20:45:24

No! Not a paper - Gransnet Website. The "front page" of it! hmm grin

When you click on the link (from our Forums) it takes you to a thread that nothing about the actual funeral.

Not that it matters. #theirwebsitenot mine grin

Why don't they do away with that wretched grin thing. It's horrible!

All I know is every time I 'boot up' to Gransnet I keep seeing the picture of Sabine Durrant and think how much she looks like the actressCaroline Quentin from Men Behaving Badly fame etc. grin

And we're also being urged to 'Wine a copy of Sisters by Barbara Mortimer.' I'm up for that! wine grin

blush we've changed that typo now!

And j08, thanks for pointing that out - we did try to fit 'Baroness' in, but we only had so many characters to play with!

Lady is shorter than Baroness.

I wish they'd get rid of that "doggie-dos" thing up there. I'm sick of visualising dog sh each time I come on here!

j08 Thu 18-Apr-13 16:05:43

And 'vagacials' are n' t doing it for me either! hmm

Thanks Kat

Now I look right stupid. You have taken off the picture of Sabine Durrant(alias Caroline Quentin) and put Deborah Moggach in her place. grin
