This England

Sir - You may be interested to know that at my village's parochial church council annual general meeting, I proposed, and it was passed unanimously, a motion that the Coronation Service should not be changed to allow other faiths or religions to take part on the next occasion it takes place.
I have, from time to time, discussed this with clients in my country veterinary practice, all of whom wish the status quo to remain. - Letter in the Daily Telegraph (Terry Philpot)

If money isn't too important, why not give one of your old fur coats to a local drop-in centre - not all the homeless are fussy about the plight of animals, and winter's coming on. - Saga magazine (Barbara Jackson)
