What's in a name...

A question has been raised about the title of the blog.

To which I can only answer : "Hells bells, Ann! If you're looking at the blog you must be using the internet, a huge information resource. I haven't got time to explain everything in the minutest detail. I am trying to type up the minutes of the Resident's meeting, plan the car treasure hunt and work out the fixtures list for the Cricket Club. The Close doesn't run itself you know."

I write to comment on my ever decreasing high opinion of the author of this site, who, in the manner of one who has worked in customer service too long, has avoided a simple, pressing question with a circulatory answer. If, indeed, it is an answer at all. Perhaps the author has been reading too many Dan Brown books of late - does everything have to be a mystery?

Here are some Fry & Laurie quips to remind all of the good stuff:

Stephen: You have a daughter, I believe?

Hugh: Yeah. Yeah, Henrietta.

Stephen: Did he, did he? I'm sorry to hear that.


Stephen: Allergies? Well, I'm not good on strawberries, come out in a bit of a rash. The worst one though is Marmite. Only got to smell the stuff and I start voting Conservative.


Stephen: Used to be this chap at my school called Richard Braine. You'll never guess our nickname for him. We used to call him Rick Brain. Oh, no, that can't be right.
