Charlie quoted
<What wond'rous Life in this I lead! 
Ripe Apples drop about my head; 
The Luscious Clusters of the Vine 
Upon my Mouth do crush their Wine; 
The Nectarene, and curious Peach, 
Into my hands themselves do reach; 
Stumbling on Melons, as I pass, 
Insnar'd with Flow'rs, I fall on Grass.>

If I ever get to make my wondrous, imaginary
garden  I would want to include a section to
evoke this poem.

I worked with an Andrew Marvell, known as Andy
Marvel, best shoveller I have ever seen. Which
brings me to this site -- -- using
electoral records it tells you how many people in
the UK have a particular name. There are
apparently five Andrew Marvells of voting age.
I'm off to play with it  again now, see how many
Polly Whittackers or something.........
