I apologise if this is relevant to "The Birds", but has nothing to do with RUMs - a BBC docu-drama about Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00xjk69

I love the idea of the romantic lead being 'Arfur' Mullard. 'Ere, wot are all these birds doing ere?' I am chortling all day on that one.

Now all we need is for someone else to get exactly the same photo but with Heinkel-Trojans, 'schmitts, Rovins and Morgan 3 wheelers!

Definitely, and a sky as good as that certainly deserves to have a really nice looking car! (In my opinion!)

So that's what all this wallpaper is about. Another PC mystery solved.

So girt screen in a fake garage door or rear of campervan and you can go outside and see any car you fancy in your garage or campervan without getting your hands dirty or your wallet open. I can see it catching on. Is this why there is a no photographs policy in museums these days?

A lot of museums have no photos policy for several reasons. Obviously they want people to visit, and too many photos and you tube vids will reduce the desire for many people to visit. A lot of bigger museums have official photos and post cars of their exhibits for sale in their shops, taken by professional photographers usually with far better lighting than the "display" lighting which punters see. Also, when I go to a museum it is annoying when people's cameras keep flashing.

That answer is far to sensible.

What about a museum of photography? I like the idea of a museum that can ban itself. Or the Museum of the Moving Image where blubbing is not allowed as well.

Driving round Leicester I am always amused by the signs to the British Space Centre. It is there they collect space so you can go and see it. That is why the country feels so much smaller these days as much of the space is in a building near Leicester. I expect it will be sold by the Government to Bangladesh or somewhere that needs a bit more due to population pressure when we are no looking. Then there will be the British Vacuum Centre as there was a Civil Service miscalculation and a Vacuum is a bit like Space so hopefully no one will notice, as if either is occupied, technically it no longer exists. Indeed the exact opposite of out monitory policy that will demand the sale of Space. 'A wormhole for our times' quoth Prime Minister Brian May after huge success in stepping in to a succession of vacancies requiring a Celeb with brains. 
Next week I examine Quantum theory.

A bit like the sign to the Secret nuclear bunker I drove past in my Schmitt the other year near Brentwood.
