Don't read books much, two pages and I fall asleep, latest effort about Bletchley park, where I spent many a week during my GPO training, has so far taken me a year and still only under 1/2 way!

Presumably you’ve not read Catch 22 Richard ?  Some parallels: I can’t sign in to a website to get a password because I haven’t got a password to sign in with....

I will put it on my read list, but I fear my eyesight might fail first hugegrins hugegrins hugegrins snoozing

Bit like a computer that asks you to sign in before you set up wifi. scratch head

PS my wife does my share of reading, the Warwick has one overhead locker dedicated to books and that's for each trip.

It took the author of Catch 22 eight years to write it... It took me almost as long to read it!
Watch the film instead..

Slightly off topic, but I reckon you must have been at Bletchley when the GPO accommodation was till in the old nissen huts?
Fortunately most of my training was done elsewhere until they'd built the new "apartments" (as in rabbit hutch private room).
I still remember my shock at seeing a full-size snooker table for the first time, in the mansion.
