I have been doing quite a bit recently as I have been improving the connections between my track.

The reason I ask is that I sometimes have kids in to see my layout and my little boy is in there almost everyday.
The room is not well ventilated as the backdrops block access to the windows.

This is just getting silly. I cannot believe that anybody is going to do themselves or anybody else for that matter, any harm from soldering the odd couple of dozen joints on a model railway. Yes lead is dangerous and yes the fumes from lead is dangerous but come on, we're not talking massive doses here and as for considering installing fume extraction equipment - well I despair. Just about everything you come in contact with has an element of risk to it - it's called life. Do you wear a mask when you fill your car with diesel - it's cancerous you know, do you go out when its sunny - the rays are cancerous you know, do you breathe - it's dangerous you know!

How can you say that when we have such a wonderful health service - oh well alright, it's not actually that wonderful but we do have a health service - we do have a health service don't we? Thinking about it though, they've just sold off quite a big chunk of the my local hospital for offices or a pizza hut or something. Why can't they make funeral directors a government run organisation - they'd never let us die then! Be bit of a conflict of interests though I suppose.

I must be in another world from the rest or missing a point. Can anyone quote one a spectacular deed that the two Bs have done for the country or is this asking the impossible.

B = Tony Blair B = Gordon Brown. Perhaps both soon to be "knighted" for services given to this country.

Let's just hope that should the desicion be made to knight the two 'B's', Queenie doesn't lose her nerve this time.
