Expect it to
rain cats and dogs, followed by light birds and frogs. Later in
the day some places may get to see a little bee.
Stay at home.

to let us have money for nothing
Lloyds TSB has joined the other big banks by announcing
that it is not going to charge people to take their money out of their
own accounts through the hole-in-the-wall machines. A spokesperson for
Lloyds TSB said, "We've decided to scrap the charges from next year,
which gives us a bit of time to think of other ways to make money out
of our customers".
Blair backs down
Minister, Tony Blair, has backed down from plans to impose on-the-spot
fines for hooligans. Last week Mr Blair said that he wanted the police
to take trouble makers to cash machines and force them to pay banks a
pound a time to withdraw money to pay their fines. But a spokesperson
for the PM said, "It was a great idea, but now Lloyds TSB and the
other banks have spoilt our fun and we're having to rethink our tactics".
Tennis ace Tim Henman has broken his tennis racket.
The accident happened as he was beaten in his Wimbledon game against Mark
Philippoussis. Witnesses said that Henman's racket collided with the ground
at great speed and snapped. A spokesperson at Wimbledon said that the
racket had to be 'put down' following the near fatal blow. Mr Henman said
later, "I didn't want to win the stupid game in the first place".
ET 100 index
The ET 100 index closed a tad up against Ball Street,
but would have closed higher if it hadn't had to phone home.
