Try to remember that-
Sticks and stones can break your bones
But words can never hurt you.
Auberon Waugh advised never to have recourse to courts.
I've made a new thing for tea, a dish specially invented for the occasion.
If it gets eaten, I'll tell you more later.
I quite like cooking, but I hate following recipes. I usually make it up....and sometimes it goes wrong. But it's no fun otherwise.
I havn't had my tea yet...
I like cooking too.
RESULT! All eaten, and voted a success.
It was a kind of Irish stew, but made with chicken.
Maybe Spendi will sneer at me if I put in the details. I'm going to watch Liverpool.
So Ballack saved England's pride.
London's pride maybe....most of us wouldn't mind Chelsea losing.
Liverpool march on, good game at Anfield.
Better that than Mother's
In the interests of scientific research I today read some articles in The Independent.
It made me realise why you are all so confused.
Every sentence and every paragraph of wisdom was completely contradicted by another sentence or paragraph of wisdom. As you read you thought "that's right" and as you read on you thought "that's right" never imagining that they were contradictory "rights". An attention span problem.
The article relating to "single mothers", whatever that might mean, was hilarious. "Is shagging respectable or not?" seemed to be the point at issue. If it is we should reward it and if it isn't we should punish it.
But the 2 million refugees from Iraq story, bearing in mind that the department for which Dr David Kelly worked is asserted to have a "duty of care" for his welfare is absolute proof of institutionalised racism and, at the same time, we are not racists. In fact we utterly abhor racists.
So I can understand the confusion.
The drift, and it's as plain as the nose on your face, is that children should be removed from the immediate vicinity of their parents as soon as possible in lieu of the scientific inabilty to grow them in bottles. As soon as we can afford it.
See This Be The Verse by Philip Larkin.

Mother's Pride is but one of a range of hellish British bread substitutes.
Ever since somebody invented a mass-production "baking" process involving the use of steam, most bread has been crap.
(edit) read here about the Chorleywood Breadmaking Process, Lancashire's gift to the world.
still rabbiting on.....
What wit eh? Doesn't it make one proud to be an A2Ker and bask in the company of intellectuals of such advanced thinking and literary skill.

Hello all on this thread - I've been travelling and working much too much so haven't had a sensible moment to visit a2k.
Will be trying to find a bar in Munich tonight to watch Arsenal v PSV rather than Bayern v Real...wish me luck!
