I don't know if Mrs. C will go to jail,. But I personally don't think Bill, the Zipper, will be around her much longer. They stayed together hoping she would be elected, even though he had frequently decieved her. What woman would have put up with that?. There was method in her maddness.

Re: TV Shows - Favourite Co-stars

According to Wikipedia, pooh was the name of a swan. Winnie the bear it seems often kept his arms stifly up in the air and if something landed on his nose he would 'pooh 'it away with his mouth. THAT is how he got his name. In fact he was more commonly known as Pooh bear.

Growing up a Protestant in Scotland, we always enjoyed Halloween and Guy Fawks nights. But after living in a Catholic country for 40 years, I realised that the church considers Halloween to be a purely pagan festival of worshiping all thats evil. Halloween was almost unknown by most, Fancy dress her...
