Patriotic DutyI don’t normally post this type of thing (forwarded joke email) but I couldn’t resist this one… “As we all know, the Taliban considers it a sin for a man to see a naked woman who is not his wife. So, this Saturday at 2:00 PM Eastern time all British women are asked to…

Mr.MenI think I had all the books, and a couple of audiotapes as well (with Arthur Lowe from Dad’s Army providing the voices). Anyway, the question is, how many can you name? (Mr.Men or Little Miss…) I think we got most of them, but it was getting late and we couldn’t stay awake long enough…

MelancholyI’m a tad down at the moment, and although I know it’s just the weather/stress at work/impending financial crisis that is Xmas, it takes me back to a bad time in my life. And then I go and read this (at bluegirl). So damn true it hurts.

Failing health systemI have to agree with Scotblog’s views on the medical profession. A friend of mine has had a few problems recently and the doctors have singularly failed, on top of that, some of them have been down right incompetent.
