    Now that looks scrumptious!

    There used to be many a millinery shop in towns, but no more. Online stores do quite a business selling hats, particularly Amazon.

    I made a delicious risotto today with a base I stole from work.

    I feel that if I've been forced away I better take advantage of it.

    The flushing and slushing sound stands up on its own merit [artistically and muscially] after/when sureshs is done with his laminar flow!

    Not everyone who finds things return them to lost and found and incidentally, my grammar is far from perfect and I don't know if I should have written returns instead of return.

    The fingerprints of koala bears are virtually indistinguishable from those of humans, so much so that they can be easily confused at a crime scene.

    The Nords clearly enjoy to be stimulated first thing in the morning. And possibly up to three or four times a day! More than the French and Italians! Who'd have thunk it

    I can imagine instead of Genie sewing the knotts off USTA, his gargantuanness might be the one suing for the behind the scenes ''slippery when wet in the dark'' action during the fortnight at Flushing.:D:oops:

    The peanut shell track left by the Technicolor Pachyderm would have absorbed the excess moisture that caused the Can Can Princess to fall on her can. If the USTA finally gets some brains, they give SexiSuri an all-expenses paid yearly trip to Flushing to prevent further mishaps.

    Caroline's parents are from Poland, and she speaks Polish with them, but she grew up in Danish schools, where she spoke Danish and learned English from an early age. Kids in Denmark are taught English at school from an early age, and watch television shows and listen to music in English. Caroline has a Danish accent when she speaks English.

    Caro speaks the language of love with an accent that was appreciated by a certain famous Northern Irish golfer who resembles a Tolkien character.

    "Cool For Cats" was the first tune from the band Squeeze to feature co-leader Chris Difford as lead vocalist instead of his partner Glenn Tilbrook.
