Sorry Sheila, I realise that you've raised a serious issue, but I can't stop myself from saying that it wouldn't be too difficult to attach a laptop computer to the handlebars of an exercise bike.

It is nice to see that there is finally a faint glimmer of a debate on the cost of researching family history through ScotlandsPeople. There has never been an occasion, when I had finished spending my 30 credits and come away without feeling I had been somehow cheated. This is most painful when I ha...
