Amazing things about November 10:
» It was Stock and Aitken versus Waterman at a court hearing in 1999, as Mike and Matt claimed that Pete had trousered all the cash from their many hits and spent the lot on trains.
» Prince Charles embraced the internet in 1998 with the launch of his first website. And now, in 2003, the ungrateful internet has well and truly bitten him on the arse in return.
» Fifteen years have now passed since Enya topped the charts with Orinoco Flow.
» The late Screaming Lord Sutch, legendary leader of the Monster Raving Loony Party, was born on this day in 1940. The leadership of the party is now shared by Alan Hope – otherwise known as Howling Laud Hope – and his ginger tom, Mandu.
» People with birthdays who are still alive include Heavenli Abdi, who was in the Honeyz, then wasn't in the Honeyz, then was in them again, then, finally, wasn't. Again. Anyway, she is 29. And Tim Rice – who shares the blame for many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber – is 59.
