Hi
 This Zeta `was Nick Polls which he took to France and (I believe) has since sold.
Nice to know were it went though, Fred Diwell would probably be very interested.
(if he doesn't already know)

PS I heard the other day that our friend "Zeta Sports" who had to dispose of his cars because he "does not have long to live"
may in fact not be ready to shed his mortal coil any faster than the rest of us, so thats good news for him

To save the world and reduce energy consumption in line with Government policy I have replaced my Mortal Coil with a six volt one second hand Siba one. It has slowed me down a little and I need the odd bump start but if we all did the same we would all be so much better off by stopping global warming. The saving means I have bought a new wood burner for keeping warm now it will stay colder because I have been green. The next move was to replace my 'idea' light bulb with a rare gas energy saving one free from NPower. Two problems. It was a screw in, though that is less dangerous to life than a bayonet fit. Bought the tears to my eyes though. Then the trouble is I found I was a bit dim for the first 15 minutes and the damage and mess caused took so much time to sort out that there was no saving to be had. I therefore have returned to the Osram Tungsten Filament of Imagination.

Hi, as you may know, I am Nick Poll's son. He sold it to Francisco De Cunto from Italy.
Hope that helps!

'WTF' is the Worldwide Trilobite Fund isn't it? The first bank with deposits everywhere.
 
Zeta Garbo was a German Lady tractor driver who was restyled into an actress, had a bit of a break down and did a few B movies under the name Zeta after a face lift in Australia. Was not a great hit unfortunately. Not allot of people know dat.

Franki and Jim are just nice guys.

I am wondering about moving to the Wirral, Richard. Any suggestions....

No I thought you would suggest I look elsewhere for being wierd!

That said part of my family came from the Wirral. Shipping family, the Dempsters, Stevenson-Jones Marble Importers etc. Chums with Lord Birkenhead. Had money in those days so a holiday house out at Conway. Owned Ranaliegh (?) Buildings in Liverpool. I believe there was a printers there too. Know little about the place myself other than when we visied you and Dave Smeddley (?), he of Smash robot and Trienkel fame. Kind of nice to go down the front like you can from yours.
