the interpretation is up to you.

To me proper does not mean urbane.

Not usually, but this might be a pretty good way to introduce someone.

Perhaps a "Prodigal Son", task, then? Or maybe, "People of the Philippines, I have returned"

Sweet, we've got tasks going live again.

I think Mr. Hatman, Blue, and Lank have already completed this task unwittingly..

post dated praxis don't really count.

Thanks. That task completion would be over a year old, though.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to Great Yarmouth; I know at least a couple of you want to see the place, for some reason.

I tell every Brit I meet that I have friends in Great Yarmouth. I say it quite proudly, with a big smile on my face. They usually respond with a blank face... I can't imagine why. Great Yamouth has all sorts of great things. I know. I've been doing research :)

I often tell my British friends that I plan on visiting GY next time I'm in the UK. They also give me that same blank face. I respond with this fantastic bit of trivia I discovered via QI:

"Two people killed many of the elderly in Great Yarmouth's Haslemere Home for the Elderly between 1960-61. The first was Gladys Elton (81), who performed a striptease. One resident had a heart attack and another five had to be treated for shock. The second was Harry Meadows (87), who dressed up as Death for a prank, complete with scythe. He knocked at the lounge room window, and beckoned the people inside to come out. Another three people died. The home was shut down in 1961."

Now, that's my kind of people.

Amazing.

Haslemere Home!!!
posted by Secret Agent on January 6th, 2009 6:51 AM

Is it still standing? In use otherwise? Or, perhaps, he asked hopefully, empty?
Definite pilgrimage potential there.

The Haslemere Home for the Elderly was turned into the Hazelhurst Hotel where my mum and dad had their wedding reception. Fact.

(Thanks to my Politics teacher for knowing this one).
