Nicely caught, though it would be more appropriate if it wasn't gold!

The Baker gets the Blame Jeff, but I suspect it was a faulty burner in a Chinese Take Away Restaurant? cheer scally.

Fain I can assure you I had nothing to do with the Gold ! I even asked her if she could get on the roof of the Building on the Left and check if it was real,but got no co-operation :( cheers scally.

That was a Lovely thing to say Marion. I was so proud that I called my wife thru to read it, but she smiled and said " Scotland might be richer, because I.ll will keep the Cards and the Bank account"??? :=( But seriously I do not thnk London Has room for any more People, If you fainted in Leicester Square you would hit 1/2 dozen people before you hit the ground, and 1/2 of them would be Australian.LOL cheers scally.

"The City was essentially medieval in its street plan, an overcrowded warren of narrow, winding, cobbled alleys."

Sounds just like Prague ... 3 days of overcrowding ... 1 careless pizza baker ... and the city would be in ruins!

As far as Thomas Farriner is concerned, I have a great sympathy for him, having set fire to a brand new cooker, and almost burning our house down :)))

Pure chinese restaurants do not use any baker. I am sure that it is not from Chinese. LOL

Cheers, Jeff
