I for one will take a real satisfaction when this happens.

I AM appealing for people to volunteer for Marie Curie Cancer Care's Great Daffodil Appeal.
Although the appeal doesn't take place until March, plans for collecting donations are already underway.
We're looking for people who can donate an hour of their time in March to hand out the charity's iconic daffodil pin in return for donations.
To join our local team of volunteer collectors call Marie Curie Cancer Care on 0845 601 3107 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil

A bright idea
I THOUGHT the Hydro being lit up in the colours of the South African flag was a lovely gesture.
At Hallowe'en, it was done up to look like a giant pumpkin and, again, it looked fantastic.
The latest gesture, to honour Nelson Mandela, certainly brightened up my car journey to work.
I hope the staff at the Hydro continue to come up with great ideas like this as it gives the city a lovely touch of colour.

I HOPE the tax man will be keeping a close eye on those Glaswegians who decide to rent out their homes to visitors during next year's Commonwealth Games (Evening Times, December 10).
I can already imagine the slum landlords of Govanhill rubbing their hands with glee, and working out just how many unsuspecting foreign visitors they pack into one of their decaying room and kitchens.
