Thanks for the heads up. I'll grab a towel now.

I'll celebrate it by re-reading So Long and Thanks for all the Fish----the message left by the dolphins when they departed Planet Earth just before it was demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass, as described in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

With towel firmly in my hand.

HGttG has been re-run on BBC Radio 4 Extra for the last few Saturdays. Took me back to listening to it on Sunday afternoons when it was first serialised.

Marvin the Paranoid Android is frequently referenced in our family when anyone is moaning too loudly about trivial ailments/insignificant paper cuts, etc.
