Re: Das Boat Race

Surprised that Brazil and LP haven't been all over this. Double Cambridge win and at Ely, just down the road. I've sailed a dingy down that bit of water with a mate. Great going down with the sails up but getting back was a logistical nightmare involving the tow trailer. Could have watched the finis...

Hi PR Family I'm back home now after a lengthy stay in hospital. Thank you for your good wishes. No time to go into detail now. The Management knows more than me, she's been a brick. Still very weak, trying to build up my strength. I expect maybe another few weeks before I can stagger up to my study...

But it took Shirley to break a very close contest and Ranvir is going home. Week 9 is the final and three dances. I th...

So Caroline gets the bullet, gracefully. Maisie is clinging on with her fingernails. Not sure why she is unpopular. I'm guessing that the jealousy factor amongst the ladies of this country is possibly it. In the dance off again. Every time she's in the dance off, the judges will probably save her. B...
