Phoenix from the Ashes!

May 29, 2008

Ten Years ago the illustrious Oundle Town publication the Badger Bulletin recruited an agony aunt and a clairvoyant. This publication has been seeking two new members of the team and we now have a new Agony column known as ‘ASK KIMBERS!’ and a new Doom & Gloom merchant called P.A. Predicts.

Apparently Steven Spielberg is hoping to make a sequel in 2009. I have heard that Ross is in the frame for a part, but they are also looking for another Weasley in the next Harry Potter film! No end to this lad’s talent.

Law 41 & Umpires

May 14, 2008
