The sister-in-law's waters have just broken

This is a medical term that is related in some way to having a baby apparently. This means we're likely to have a new niece this afternoon, we'll call in to see her on our way to [place]Canterbury[/place] for lunch tomorrow, I think she's in [place]Ashford[/place]. This new niece is on Clare's side, but also today, it's my nephew Jack's birthday, happy birthday mate.

Speaking of place name links like [place]Canterbury[/place], [place]Folkestone[/place], [place]Ashford[/place], etc, I just added a tonne more [place=London]pubs and things for London[/place] [place=Fareham]and for Fareham[/place], [place=Portsmouth]and for Portsmouth[/place]. If you've been to any of those places and fancy clicking on the stars to rate them, please feel free, help me build the site up a bit...

Today we're having a [artist]Life On Mars[/artist] / 1970s themed day at work, fancy dress and stuff, and there's a '70s quiz where I could win a telly. Here are the questions:

24: What is DCI Gene Hunt looking forward to for dinner when he first meets Sam Tyler in Life on Mars?

25: What year did the final episode of Dixon of Dock green air?


I need 100% to go into the draw apparently, and I've just spotted those questions from the quiz sponsor, IHG, and I need to get my answers in right now, not sure I will bother with this then...

UPDATE: Baby Poppy Mahon has been born already, and should be home tomorrow, so we're off to see them all then. Also, I did not win anything in the quiz, not even joint third place half bottle of wine. Being able to answer the sponsored questions was quite important in the end.
