In memory of Roy Plumley

On another thread FE has said that he would take his espresso machine to his desert island. I would take a hot water bottle. How about you? Stick to the rules - 0ne luxury item only, not alive.

Sorry pattoo that's against the rules as well unless you build it yourself and then it's not a luxury.

  Apron 09:47 22 Nov 2006

I didn't make the rules, see the name of the thread.
The hot water bottle is in case I am dying, it's not the heat it's the wobbly comfort. I will need two things when I am dying, the hottie and the Emperor Concerto ( that will be there of course).

I've spelled the great man's name wrongly. That's Plomley or maybe Plomondely or something else very English.

My friend Wilson.

Sorry but I've no idea of who he is or what he has to do with desert islands. And since I also have no idea of what the rules are I don't have a clue what to do next.

Sorry Totally-braindead you must be young. he was the man who devised Desert Island Discs about a thousand years ago (Radio 4 Friday 9am)
If you were marooned on a desert island which 8 gramaphone records would you take with you? The gramaphone is already there. You are also allowed 1 book ( not the Bible or Shakespeare, they are also there). You may take one luxury, it musn't be something you can shelter in or escape in.

My luxury is of course a high-powered laptop with a fat broadband pipe.

High Tec 'phones and PCs have never raised their heads as far as I know so you shall have them. I believe that strictly speaking you are not allowed to contact humans, this tests your ability to bear solitude. I am having a day off today which is nice. Are you all working?

We all lack style, Hermione Baddely chose the Albert Hall. She was allowed this because she was Hermione Baddely
