    Re: Door To Door Sales

    In the early 70s I knew of a man (a distant relative of mine) who use to sell material/clothing in a suitcase.
    Soon after he opened a string of shops and became a millionaire.

    Re: Only Fools And Horses.

    The best episode must be 'A Touch of Glass.'
    They visit a stately home to clean some chandeliers.
    If I can recall there was even a documentary about the episode.

    Re: Doctor sleep

    Last year I read The a shining again prior to reading Dr Sleep. The book is no way close to the brilliance of The Shining. I just hope that the film lives up to the original film.

    Not sure. But it is the scene where she pushes him onto the bed and as she falls on top of him his head strikes her nose, at which point she grins. It was a mistake but was not edited out.

    It is Carry on Doctor.
    The scene appears on the 82 minute point of the film where Hattie Jacques tries to seduce Kenneth Williams.
