|This is a sample table||Just to see if it works|
|and some text||to fill the cells|
Here's a bit of straight text
here's some in colour
I've added a link to this web-based service on the right hand menu bar for anyone who wants to give it a whirl or has a pressing desire to do something fancy
February update....when I updated the template last weekI managed to lose a couple of links including the one to WriteToMyBlog. I've added it again but while I was at it I realised the service has improved a lot since I last tried it....it's now a fully fledged on-line word processor with a lot of the bells and whistles of Word....worth a look if you feel the urge to include chemical formulae in any of your posts!

Posted on Anne's behalf due to further technical problems
Off on our travels once again we headed down to Peterborough and booked into the Bull Hotel (where we spent many a happy night boozing on our speedway travels). Spent the afternoon savouring the culinary highlights of the City…not something I would recommend as it can basically be summed up as what do you want with your chips!
After John topped up his alcohol intake in readiness for the night ahead…we headed for the Broadway theatre and a night in the company of the great man himself (see above for photographic memoir of the evening. A packed theatre resonated to the sound of those old classics as well as some new hits…yes he is still producing new albums…and gyrating grannies. After dragging Anne away from the stage door we headed back to the hotel bar and the delights of Match of the Day…disturbed unfortunately by twittering women of a certain age swooning at programmes and calendars.
And just think it is all to be repeated again this Saturday in Preston…less the alcohol unfortunately says John!!

(ps I looked the man up on Wikipedia...just out of interest and in the vague hope I'd find something in the scurrilous gossip line, but the first sentence says 'David Essex failed in his first attempts at stardom.'.....so hey, enough said, I read no more!) Here's the man himself with his best buddy....I guess he can't afford to be too picky these days, he'll be doing talks on jam-making for the Whitley Bay Townswomens Guild next!

Thought the site needed some links to the past so attached is a photo of 21 Park Road, scene of Mother's early life and MO's childhood...must have worried the current residents when this motley crew were seen loitering outside...should we be posting some of the family tree information on here at some point?
