I wouldn't mind any of my post being used but, as others have said, it's sometimes too time-consuming to get into an argument.

But, we must remember we are the loony minority who love and endorse Enid Blyton's work and closed mindedly avoid modern classics by the likes of Bruno Vincent (whom Enid would have loved and praised lavishly).... :D :wink:

A most marvellous turn of phrase, Pete! :D
Was anyone ever so perfect they could look in the mirror and truthfully say "I never did anything wrong or questionable?" I'd doubt any of us could and yet if we were to hear what people no doubt have to say about us it would be those qualities and the difference that we make that would be remarked upon.
Enid, like all of us was no different but she left a great legacy of children's books that made them laugh, smile, sometimes cry with the characters and generally think more about their world that helped make them better people as adults. Is that that not good enough?
