I hope life isn't too short for me to return to Ireland where grass grows profusely everywhere so that there is enough in a field for a hundred cows and a mowing the lawn is a weekly task not a yearly one.

I've got 2.5 acres, I could buy a cow and UPS WorldExpress the milk to you for about $100 (US) a gallon!

Life is too short to NOT watch Monty Python's The Meaning of Life


***Spoiler!!! If you haven't seen it don't read the following!!!!***



“Announcer: And here it is, The Meaning of Life.

(opens the official envelope)

Well, it's nothing very special. Uh, try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations. And, finally, here are some completely gratuitous pictures of penises to annoy the censors and to hopefully spark some sort of controversy, which, it seems, is the only way, these days, to get the jaded, video-sated public off their f*cking arses and back in the sodding cinema. Family entertainment, bollocks! What they want is filth! People doing things to each other with chainsaws during Tupperware parties. Babysitters being stabbed with knitting needles by gay presidential candidates. Vigilante groups strangling chickens, armed bands of theatre critics exterminating mutant goats… Where's the fun in pictures? Oh, well, there we are. Here's the theme music. Goodnight.”

Incorrect Roy. "42" is the answer to "The Great Question of Life, the Universe and Everthing", not the meaning itself.

I think the question is: "WTF??"
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
-- Philip K Dick

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.
-- Dr. Joy

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

No. "WTF"? 42. Doesn't match. How about, "How many roads must a man walk down?"

Synchronicity ftw!

The following happened Friday night.

Just after hubby has fallen asleep and I'm nearly there, I hear a strange crackling/crunching sound from the floor not far from my bed which wakes me up properly.

I lie there for a moment wondering what it could be (giant cockroaches?! :paranoid: )

Then my husband sits up beside me and starts to pull on his fleece jacket.

Having no bedside light at the moment (I'd put mine in the spare bedroom for a young guest) I ask hubby to turn on his.

I get no response from him, he continues pulling on his jacket.

I say "Please put on your light - I can hear a weird noise next to my bed and I can't see what it is!"

STILL no response from hubby. He's probably deeply asleep and acting automatically.

Getting a bit freaked out by now (am I asleep and having a realistic dream?) I reach for my mobile phone and flip it open. By its feeble light I can see the cat chewing on the laces of my trainers! With a HUGE sigh of relief, I tell the cat off, get up and pick up my trainers to put them away in the wardrobe, saying to my husband, "It's OK, it was just Sanka biting my shoe laces! I shouldn't have left them out…"

At which point he finally responds.

"Pardon me ma'am, is that the cat who chewed your new shoes?" :facewall:

Tig, I strongly suggest the next time you hear odd sounds in the middle of the night and your hubby acts like a Zombie, that you slap him upside the head until he is awake and then ask for his help. (Men!)
