A right royal sur­prise

■ Prince Charles be­com­ing 70 this year re­minded me of a com­pe­ti­tion I en­tered when I was ten, or­gan­ised by The Chil­dren’s News­pa­per. We had to copy a let­ter for Prince Charles in our best hand­writ­ing! To my amuse­ment I won a prize, a pen, for my ef­forts. I wish I could write like that now!

Hon­our our cheques

■ I won­der how many po­ten­tial cus­tomers are lost by firms who do not of­fer an al­ter­na­tive to online buy­ing, ie cheques? The old maxim is true ‘make new friends but keep the old, one is sil­ver, the other gold’.

Cool­ing off pe­riod

■ Our re­cent heat­wave re­minded me of when I was a pro­fes­sional dancer on tour in Italy. We danced in tem­per­a­tures of 102 de­grees (old money!). When we came off stage we rushed to run our wrists un­der the cold tap, which was the quick­est way to cool down. This photo is of us cool­ing down on our ho­tel roof in Mi­lan!

Tooth­paste in a tin

■ Does any­one re­mem­ber the red, blue and green Gibbs tins with solid paste for clean­ing teeth? These should be rein­tro­duced to get rid of cur­rent plas­tic tooth­paste tubes.

Jennifer Ford, Hants ■ Ev­ery orig­i­nal con­tri­bu­tion pub­lished gets a £10 High Street voucher. So keep all those let­ters and emails com­ing in.
