I've been to Paradise but I've never been to Leeds

I may be off the grid for a few days as I'm off to Leeds for a conference until late Saturday . It all depends on whether the hotel's wireless is any good. I've had mixed experiences. My favourite was a small hotel in Western Scotland where yes, they had broadband and yes, they had wireless. But no, they couldn't let me use it because the manager was the only person who knew the password and didn't trust any of his staff not to download porn and, anyway, he was on holiday. Yes, the receptionist actually told me that.

I'm sure that Leeds will do me proud. But, just in case, have a good weekend!

Ok - have been wracking my brain - who sang that. Was it Linda Ronstatt? or however it is spelt. Ive been to paradise but I have never been to me. Sipped champagne on a rock I think she warbled!

Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me....
Located it - Charlene and CoCo Lee - a great mind told me this!

OK - you told me - I admit it - I am a fraud!
