    Thanks mon, ain't they lots of awful stuff going on; even more than usual; Iraq, the nut cases shooting civilians, ongoing Rumsfeld nonsense, the goings on in Gaza, missiles from Mr. N. Korea himself, the usual Bush goings on, the global warming and all its' ramifications. I could go on and on, but I'd rather not get a headache right now, and anyway, there's not much I can do to fix any of these problems.

    I don't even have one friend in high places, as such!!!!

    LOL

    the automobile..

    i put my car in for a service today and had to walk for 45 mins to get to work!

    i could have cycled but ferk that, too much like hard work.

    also, screwdrivers are a good invention, try screwing a screw without one and you'll see what i mean.

    cups, i love a cuppa tea in the mornings, its no fun drinking it out of a jug or a vase.

    I'll let you know if the need "arises" so far so good.

    Seriously the greatest invention of all is language.
