It is very good to hear you say that, DCR.  Our welfare state was indeed a great invention, but it is unfortunately taken for granted.  Healthcare is absolutely free, but some say that it is bad quality - not so.  However, I have heard Americans boasting about the quality of the health service in America - it may be superb in terms of care, but it is not the NHS.
  I find it quite silly to even think that someone could live in a lake.

No, it's not great, but it is free.  It's good, we have good doctors, nurses, and so on.  My mum is a nurse - now a school nurse - and she has worked in great ormond street, so I know all the ins and outs of the NHS.  It's nothing like as bad as people say.

lol, king arthur never existed, nore did excalibur and the lady in the lake. Tongue


excalibur may not be real but king arthur was oh and lady of the lake wasnt real either but anyway king arthur was supposedly very tall like almost 7ft and queniver was in the same coffen as him so when they got it out of the ground the monks from the monestry touched her hair cause it was still there and it turned to dust but somwhere in this world the leaden cross exists and that would be the only thing left of king arthur oh and the glastonbury(sp) monestry is actualy avalon

I just read "The Da Vinci Code", by Dan Brown.  A very good book.  It contains a lot about conspiracy theories, that kind of thing, all about the Knights Templar, the Priory of Sion, Opus Dei.  I suggest that if you want to know all about crazy theories, go for that book. Alternatively, David Ike could help you out...  I like his idea that all the rulers of the world are cold blooded green lizards.  Brilliant.

Ok, so Dan Brown is a jerk.  His books are fairly stupid, but the point is, they are good to read.  He writes well.

To take this elsewhere...if you are ever passing Cornwall ( not that you can really pass it as it's kind stuck out there on the end of England.....) you may wish to drop by the waterfall at St. Nectans Glen....Arthur was supposed to have climbed it, bathed in it...etc, etc....cool place.

OK, I can't leave this one alone even though it's off the topic (King Arthur).

Dan Brown may write well, but his writing is enjoyable only if you know nothing of the subject about which he is writing.  He does not write well enough to make you suspend disbelief; to say to yourself, "What if the world DID work that way?  How does it work out?"

Brown's novel Digital Fortress started out well, because he was introducing his characters and the politics and the business (on both sides of legal).  I really know nothing of business or politics and so the book seemed good.  Then he introduced a bit of misinformation about cryptography, and based subsequent development of the story on that misinformation.  I put the book down and have never finished it.

As for King Arthur: if he wasn't real, he should have been!  Same for Robert of Locksley (a.k.a. "Robin Hood" -- I like Henry Gilbert's account of Robin's life)
