Apparently Facebook went off-line for a couple of hours, leaving many totally bereft of the virtual acquaintances they've never met and yet still insist on calling 'friends'. 

I also heard that is to be renamed after Martin Lewis, the bloke who started it in 2003, sold out to for £87m. What a bastard! Wish I'd thought of the idea before him....

Must be awful being the Queen with all those houses and flunkies; I should think it's a bit like permanently living in a chain of high class hotels.

While I'm not particularly a great fan of the concept of monarchy, I have to admit Mrs Queen has done a fantastic job of being the top privileged person within a pyramid of privileged people. Democratically elected leaders may come and go, but wielding no real power she remains, providing a focus for the national psyche - well, for the WASPs anyway.

Monarchy is all well and good while you have a decent one, but should be country inherit a bad one, then that's when the concept collapses and you have to start initiating revolutions, cutting off royal heads and it generally gets rather messy.

    Who will buy this site off eBay?

    We could all do with a MoneyMakingExpert to give us guidance, direction, support, links, opportunity evaluations and the tools necessary to start our own business or just to make an extra crust during these hard-pressed times of the double-dip recession. We need a champion to kick-start the economy and British entrepreneurialism.
