No not carpe diem, we all know about that one.

BTW there's snow headed the way of the UK this weekend with a Baltic windchill. :eek:








This thought: what do you consider mankind's greatest invention? Not the obvious stuff like the wheel or fire or the telephone or internet. Something so innocuous we take it for granted but has changed the face of humanity.



Mine is the fliptop toothpaste tube. :D

-3 C or -3 F?

Playing on that same theme, changed the face of humanity? The recognition that we need to wash our hands to control the spread of disease and infection.

Good one Dawn. Had this conversation with Liliy on way home. She was doing the toilet dance all the way home. She was hopping on the door step and then said Mummy what is your favourite a toilet or a house. We both chose the Toilet.
