I think this is linked to The Dr.'s inflatable Lady Gaga girlfriend somehow.

They practically sell themselves, a good pitch is recommended nonetheless.

The rest of the world puts water in their bath, Englishmen float them on top of water and remain filthy.

Do people even read anymore? They now make movies about comic books.

I was speaking today with a young man who had summitted Everest with his father, brother and sister.

According to him the legend of Mallory reaching the top of Everest before Hillary has some interesting evidence to support this claim.

Mallory promised to place a trivet in his vest pocket on the summit in honour of his wife. His body only recently found had no trivet on it.

Until Columbus most people believed that trivets could only be square and flat. Little could man have known that a whole new universe would unfold if one simply sailed west.



Quote: Erskin Quint

And Shakespeare of course:

"A trivet! A trivet! My kingdom for a trivet!"

"Thou foul thief, where hast thou stowed my trivet?"

"How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable
Seem to me all the trivets of this world"

The Bible of course is a rich vein for the miner of trivet-related material. But that is for another day.

As I recall Paul's Twelfth letter to the Corinthians was loosely based on the idea of trivets as a metaphor for temperance and stability throughout life not to mention being a versatile kitchen device.

One has to wonder if penguins lived on a continent other than Antarcica whether they could survive with humans around being more or less defenceless.

I personally would like to place one on the top of an incline and watch it totttter down.

I was in a store in Llubjlana when a woman picked up some trivets and started singing loudly.

She seemed quite mad but then I don't speak Slovenian.

No, it was about black footed penguins, not the most appealing of penguins in my mind. Still one should select which battles are worth fighting, penguins are low on my list of things to get upset about.

I am currently reading Sapiens, a brilliant snapshot of humans.

On the lighter side I just finished The Guernsey Potato Peel Pie Literary Society. I love tales of charming folk on small islands.
