    I've always loved this olde sort of stuff. Below is an extract from what was called a Bill of Mortality....This General Bill from 1664-1665 posts parishes of London in which people had died & the causes thereof.

    Although tragically plague had taken over 68,000 people that year .......the bit that really tickles me, is that amongst all this angst & fear, 14 people just couldn't be bothered and died of lethargy.

    Now that's so laid back - it's horizontal.

    The important thing is te stay on top of this plague thing .........shouldn't be difficult - just gotta avoid guys who don't like 'X's and get private visits from nurses....

    Course should ya hear of such a guy - let me know and I'll be straight round with me pot of paint ......a bucket of nails and a complimentary cat pie from Mrs Wiggins going out of business emporium.

    This is eyes-open doing the sensible thing - avoiding the plague like the plague.

    Missus Uh-Wiggins knew how to avoid that 42nd X coil.
