Each time I'm on holiday or away from the office, I use the out-of-office facility in Microsoft Outlook. I think I get across all the important points, the fact I’m out of the office and when I’ll be back in the office, so surely anything else is a bonus.
Bonuses are great!

Bill Oddie Watching
I have nothing against the marvellous Bill Oddie, but some birds have been complaining to me that he is intruding on their privacy and they are not happy. Time to give Old Bill a taste of his own medicine!
