Newsletter and jokes 30 October 2015

Hi all 
Well it's the American nonsense of Halloween on Saturday, followed next  
Thursday by the British nonsense of Guy Fawkes. I think if people really  
understood what these things were about they would not be so keen to  
Anyway, on the cinema circuit this week we have the usual Halloween-style 
scary movies, for all age groups. The quality is generally average to  
slightly-above, though this week's Pick of the Week didn't do so well at the 
US box office last week, and is expected to take a dive this week. 
There are no previews this week.

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they 
had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their

'Now don't get mad at me....I know we've been friends for a long 
time.....but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, 
I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is.' Her friend glared

"Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof."
