Fun Online Polls: Velvet Underground albums & Poppies

The results to last week's Fun Online Poll were as follows:

Apart from "The Velvet Underground & Nico", which are your favourite Velvet Underground albums?

White Light, White Heat - 12 votes

The Velvet Underground - 6 votes
Loaded - 4 votes
Live at Max's Kansas City - 3 votes
Squeeze - 1 vote
1969: The Velvet Underground Live - 4 votes
VU - 2 votes
Another View - 4 votes
Other, please specify - 5 votes

Thank you everybody (all 31 of you) who took part.

So now we know. I find that you've got to be in the mood for "White Light, White Heat", the other albums you can listen to any time.
I am pretty sure that when I was a kid, people only wore poppies for the last couple of days before 11 November. Nowadays some people (especially broadcasters, politicians and people who are on trial for phone hacking) start wearing them up to two weeks beforehand.

It hasn't been as bad this year as in other years, but a bit annoying nonetheless.

So that's this week's Fun Online Poll: "When is it appropriate to start wearing a poppy?"
