    What I need is some way of generating substantial quantities of passive income so I can spend all my time reading stuff that might be suitable for Monday Links

    Did he actually use his birth name?

    It was very easy in days gone by to change your name and lie about your age.

    I know people aged 40+ who have been using a different lastname from the one they were born with since they were children. Now due to all the proof you need to open bank accounts etc you can't do it.

    Sort of £75k p.a.?

    I'm sure there was someone on here who could have advised on that.

    The Magnificent Seven Ride! duly rode and thankfully fecked off after a mere 1 hr & 36 mins, not including the 2 mins 02 seconds of the trailer.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    Well I have gone with the name he was known by that matches his wedding certificate... Not aware of any other names for him

    Need to convince my Gran to sign the forms so I can have a look at his Army records in case there's anything useful in there.

    Me too! I have read those self help, 4 hour working week nonsense books and I have yet to work out how to put it into practise.

    As it's due to cease being Included with Prime in a couple of days, I thought I'd watch Charlie's Angels (2000), but it was such intolerable tripe that it lasted approximately five minutes before I gave up

    Instead, and in a rather different vein, I watched Des (TV Mini-Series 2020– ), the recent ITV dramatisation of Dennis Nielsen's arrest and trial. Very good indeed

    ITV seem to have really got the knack of these true crime things. The one about Fred and Rose West a few years ago, Appropriate Adult, was also extremely good, as was Code of a Killer about the first use of DNA profiling in the hunt for that Colin Pitchfork from down the road

    Goodnight all

    So there is a family secret no one is telling you.

    Bet it's boring by today's standards.
