    Earning a fair Guinea

    Tom,

    I seem to recall that the saying "to put the cat amongst the pigeons" originates from when the Romans used to release birds for Caracal's to catch, one of the animal attractions of the arena. I expect that someone will now put me wrong and shatter a belief of many years.

    The metaphor never crossed my mind, till you mentioned it John . But I'm sure you're right.

    I just saw it and thought... Wow! What a spectacular pussy... and I don't see so many of those these days...
