And while on the subject of sewage...


....Spare a thought for Joesph Bazalgette who built London's sewage system. His great great grandson Peter Bazalgette is chairman of Endemol which brought Big Brother to British tv.

It seems that both Bazalgette's are in the similar lines of work. At least Jospeh had the good grace to take crap out of the public view.

"Endemol" sound like a drug used to keep psychotic mental patients placid.

End it all with Endemol!

LOL Roger, in the case of the current Celebrity Big Brother perhaps that is happening in a sense - the careers, such as they are, of certain obnoxious housemates!

I am fortunate to live a half mile UP the bayou, not down the bayou, from one of Houston's sewage treatment plants. Living down-bayou from it would truly be sewer-side. <grin_duck_run />

So quiet you could hear a pun drop Steve! It definitely sounds like you are on the right side of the sewer works
