Dyslexic OH insists that..." Belguim is a correct spelling of Belgium because it's an anagram and all of the letters are right". Just not in the right order though eh? But close enough...

Bought a T-shirt once in support of the U.K. dyslexia society, “ Daily sex” crossed out with dyslexia below. Funny sometimes, anagrams

Re: I smiled because...

...of this little story that has emerged this evening. If it's a hoax, it's a blinder.

Star Trek 'Starfleet logo' spotted on Mars by NASA probe

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured images of a series of the chevron-style contours on the planet's surface.

Yeah, daughter just middle of masters EOY exams. And it can be a little like stepping on coals on occasion.

Sometimes find myself fantasising that I had a small sliding door open to her room to provide the healthy sustenance required (she studies at the Uni, eats in her layer only since 3 weeks).

Have daytime fantasies in which I call "Stand back from the door", while pushing her incredibly high protein, low carb, healthy fat diet through the slot.

Admit, it's a little disconcerting when she comes to me for a hug and thanks me for the great meal. But we can always fantasise

I get this..but realize, it is tougher for the parents when kids are growing up and fending for themselves. It is not tough for the kids.
