    I can imagine I'd have been on Napoleon's list, short-arse that I am! ;) Made me chuckle.

    Hi Mike.The length of the trouser leg is a contentious issue along with the waist measurement as well. There is such a variation in sizes and lengths of all clothes, male and female. I put it down to the fact that we don't make anything anymore, and ...

    Dear Dolly, I have short legs and am nearly six feet in height. It is quite difficult to but trousers at this length now - I think 28inches. I recently bought two pairs - at different shops - but they had to be ordered as they were not in stock. ...

    Well, I'll try and hold out, although it could be a bit of a push. Fortunately, whilst stumbling through the fog I came across a small, but old fashioned sweet shop who was doing a brisk trade in earplugs. I bought a deluxe pair along with some ...

    I know this place, I came across it a few months ago, it was foggy then as well. Unfortunately I wandered off, got lost, and have been wandering ever since, god knows where I am now. You haven't seen me have you? I'm easily recognisable as I now ...

    Dolly wrote a new blog: "Unknown, Alternative Historical Facts".
        During his first time in exile, and just before his return to France, and his subsequent defeat at the hands of Wellington, Napoleon became increasingly paranoid about his height. He would often walk around the island, closely ...

    Bullshit, hate, lies, genocide, bigotry and all the most unpleasant, nasty things you can think of have always been there, unfortunately, a modern version of Pandora's box called the internet, has given it a global platform. What to do? Live your ...

    Dear Dolly, Your blogs do come across as though you have too much going on! I went to a concert given by someone you might remember - Nigel Kennedy! It was more curiosity on my part. I got the cheapest seat - right at the top of a concert ...

    Hi Mike,Having ideas isn't something I'm ever short of. My problem is having too many things going on at once in my head. My first love is music, which I spend a lot of time, and I have enough songs for around ten albums. The problem is, I don't ...
