Better grab an overnight bag too, tuna, 'cos once you've failed to fix the woodshed to the satisfaction of the Ministry of Defence ( which outcome is as sure as God made little green apples ) you know you're going to be booking a room at the Playa Del Prodigal Pup Resort Hotel. All-Inclusive.

Oh crap, I missed Gabriel Garcia Marquez' " Nobody Writes To The Colonel ". ( am I allowed 16 ?)

[edit] Deeksha - re-reading your list I assume that the Shakespeare you list as 'Quality Of Mercy' would be 'The Merchant Of Venice', right ?

Sounds a little patronising, frankly. To 'turn someone/something around' usually carries the sense of changing it from bad to good. So, for example, one might take over a failing business and 'turn it around' so that it is now profitable.
