Hi Folks,

For those who are interested – today is the 105th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ first public flight at a racecourse at Le Mans… On the same day, 38 years later, the first flight of the Convair B-36, the world’s first mass-produced nuclear weapon delivery vehicle, took place… Today, we launch the first newsletter from our spanking new website… Yeah , not quite sure where we were going with that! But, as with the newsletter – so with the website – we hope you like it 🙂

If you have any suggestions or ideas for items you’d like us to include, or any feedback on the newsletter — or our new website — good or otherwise, please email us at:…[email protected]–mil.co.uk.

A newlywed couple moves into their new house.

One day the husband comes home from work and his wife says, “Honey, you know, in the upstairs bathroom one of the pipes is leaking, could you fix it?”

The husband says, “What do I look like, Mr. Plumber?”

A few days go by, and he comes home from work and his wife says, “Honey, the car won’t start. I think it needs a new battery. Could you change it for me?”

He says: “What do I look like, Mr. KwikFit?”

Another few days go by, and it’s raining pretty hard.

The wife finds a leak in the roof.

She says, “Honey, there’s a leak on the roof! Can you please fix it?”

He says, “What do I look like, Bob the Builder?”

The next day the husband comes home, and the roof is fixed.

So is the plumbing. So is the car.

He asks his wife what happened.

“Oh, I had a handyman come in and fix them,” she says.

“Great! How much is that going to cost me?” he snarls.

Wife says: “Nothing. He said he’d do it for free if I either baked him a cake or slept with him.”

“Uh, well, what kind of cake did you make?” asks the husband.

“What do I look like, Mary Berry?”
