Enjoy and thank you for your feedback on the first part, apart from anything else its nice to hear from you all.


Before you start i thought i would share a couple of comical items i read over the week.

Not sure where but a cleaner was giving the Library a deep clean and when the Librarians went in later they found all the books on the shelves were arranged in height formation starting from the tallest to shortest.

A Joke - A blonde wanted to learn to fly but all the planes were out so the instructer agreed to instruct her on flying a helicopter solo by radio, after showing her what to do off she went, when reaching 1000ft she radioed in "im loving this, the view is great and im getting the hang of this". After reaching 2000ft she radioed in again saying how easy it was to fly the helicopter, the instructor looked on as she climbed to over 3000ft and was beginning to worry that she had not radioed in, to his horror about half a mile away he saw her crash and raced over and pulled her from the wreckage. He asked her what happened, she said " not sure everthing was going fine but as i got higher i got colder  and i cant remember anything after i turned off the big fan"
