I was hoping for some practical advice, which is rather lacking on this thread.

This is guaranteed to work: lend Donald Trump a billion dollars.

Sorry Bill.

But here is some practical advice on how to take a different take on what, to you, may have seemed sorted :D

New tip on how to become a millionaire, Bill... with a specificity at 2:14 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvaJdVaxyfs ...although he did not tell us how he, qua audience member, voted re Ingram´s guilt at the end of each act of the play QUIZ, did he?! 8)

btw, one of my Phone A Friends, Bill Hartston, DID attend the play QUIZ during its West End Run.
He voted them Guilty at the end of each act.
He said to me that he thought audiences would have been more cynical had they had it presented to them that Ingram was later found guilty of another fraud.
But Ingram was not.
He made mistakes in quoting the dates of a previous burglary and the insurance company called in a private investigator who passed letters, by hand, through Chris Tarrant´s door saying that Ingram had committed another dodgy act. Tarrant passed those on to the police who prosecuted.
Ingram was found guilty of something which David Taylor of Wilts Constabulary said was "not fraud".

Stewart Reuben attended and also voted Guilty.
Although he told me he would have preferred the option available to a Scots juror of ´Not Proven´.

Mariotti popped up last month on the island of Rhodes at the World Veterans Team Olympiad, where Italy actually finished quite highly. First time I saw him.
re Mr T.K. Hemingway, another name which features in the cutting of Sweby´s from a Luton paper and whom I have not seen now in over thirty years - anybody know whatever became of him, may I ask?
