    I love carpet, the smell, the taste. Mmmm, it Bill likes Carpet but only 3% he needs to 100% for the carpet to feel wanted....

    The headline says "Deathwatch: Has Microsoft killed Allied Carpets?", so Bill has killed off Allied Carpets by buying a stake in Carpetright, is that correct. Is Peter North still alive, or dead from Aids?

    "Deep Throat This" DVD's look pretty good.
