Apparently the annual suicidal, bone-cracking race down a huge precipitous grassy slope in Gloucestershire by a few hundred nutters has now ballooned into a 15,000 folk free-for-all due to modern instant news and communications.

So they’ve cancelled the cheese-rolling, for a bit.

And Diane is shaking.  This is the bit that I can’t understand, shaking from lack of cheese-rolling, that is…  My comprehension is such that I feel I’m on another planet….
