I remember them, but they used to fall to bits when you used them a few times. There was something free nearly every week with them comics, or if there was nowt free, I would buy the one that had the free stuff that week.

Folding a thousand paper cranes allows you one wish.

That is a Japanise legend.

If it was that easy :-

Maybe one wish could be for World Peace.

Allowing for the fact that there will always be evil people doing evil deeds

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
