....We're looking for a significant event to mention on our corporate Xmas card (to go out to clients etc). It features a run down of significant events throughout the year and we're stuck on October.... Anything will do...

    Thanks. I just sent that round the office. It has sparked a lot of conversation. I heard someone ask "who is Nana Mouskouri?", the pliosaur thing turned into a little debate over evolution vs creationism and a couple of people started to do the Thriller dance. Good value....

    Wasn't October the month Jenson Button clinched the F1 drivers title?

    Popped his cherry in what? A nice refreshing glass of lemonade???

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    It's considered poor form going round popping other people's cherries for them... Very poor form indeed.

    (Actually - it's a bit rapey...!)

    I popped an ex girlfriends cherry, exactly the same time she popped mine.

    First and only cherry I ever popped.
