Good Day for Saddam Hussein, who can now be contacted by e-mail on his new official homepage set up to commemorate his 60th birthday last week. Unfortunately, since Iraq has no Internet facilities, any e-mail messages for him will have to be picked up in Jordan, then printed out and driven 500 miles for delivery.

Bad Day for Macdonalds, as a well-known hamburger chain opted for the Clan Lindsay tartan for staff uniforms. The burgundy, green and navy of Clan Lindsay was considered a good match for the navy trousers worn by staff. "It is incredible that they have got the name McDonald and they do not use a Macdonald tartan. It is extraordinary," said Godfrey Lord Macdonald, chief of Clan Donald.
