Frank, this seems to be a universal sign off, with a commercial influence, of course. I like it when they say"good bye, until our next broadcast." True story: A friend of mine in Winnipeg ran a small grocery store. A customer wearing a long coat came in and headed towards the magazine section. Although he acted suspiciously, she did not approach him. As he left the store, she told him in her usual way, to come again. Well, you can imagine what happened.

I imagine her customer was merely broadcasting his seed in the usual manner.

Dear Alton, I will adopt letter writing mode in responding to your friendly post in like fashion. On my best behaviour also, using commas as instructed by dear Russ earlier. Don't I agree about your countryperson's "have a nice day". Chagrin in spades, I can imagine, unlike most US things it never caught on over here, thank god, unlike T.G.I.F. eateries, where perhaps they might utter this godawful expression. I kid you not on this subject I watched horrified a TV doco. on an execution and unless I imagined ithe Prison Governer said these last words, from habit I guess. On a lighter note, a less than cheery cockney bus conductor whose double-decker I used - when we had such creatures - had a badge aimed at his tourist passengers which read: " don't tell me what kind of day to have", there's earthy London wit for you, nothing like the Dick Van Dyke version foisted on the world by Hollywood.

I have just read your good joke Ahmed, and Erik's bang on form riposte.
