Having a little talk this morning about our eating habits, I wondered exactly how much we do eat. Interesting findings. I left out the first five years because of age, although from birth I was a good eater. My estimation = 7 ton of spuds 2 1/2 ton of onions (I eat them like apples) 2 3/4 ton of greens 2 1/2 ton of meat 1 1/4 ton of fruit 3/4 ton of Friday home made curry night. Oh my Too hard to calculate everything else. Just in case you are wondering, I am 5ft 11in tall, 13st. I also work out at least 1 ton of the spuds was in chip form, another 1 1/2 ton in roast tatties. I tended to work things out on the lean side rather than over estimate. Cheers

Hello Kaga, I love useless information. Try this one. If the perforations do not tear off evenly on the toilet roll, tear back the top layer all the way around back to the other layer, now the perforations will be together. It is amazing how the Pope singled you out. Big grin

Barbie's measurements if she was life size would be 39-23-33. Lol Lol Coca Cola originally was green. The cleverest dogs are the boarder collie, poodle, golden retriever - the dumbest is the Afghan. Men can read smaller print than women, but women listen better. Big grin The Hawaiian alphabet has only 12 letters. Everyday more money is printed for Monopoly than for the US Treasury.

Morgana, I agree women listen better, but only in "shorthand". Which they do not understand. Example = Having been asked a question by nameless. Sitting on a bench opposite the London Eye, I remarked to a nameless female (that is because I wish to continue living) "I have just timed the wheel and it takes 7mins to do a quarter of a turn, that means it does one revolution in half an hour approx. so that means two turns an hour" About 15mins elapsed when out of the blue, I had a reply. "That does not do a revolution every quarter of an hour, more like 2 an hour, maybe." "I didn't say that" "You just told me that" Oh well, back to the drawing board. Wink

😊😜😄😂 Sorry Mattash, can't stop laughing. In my day shorthand was squiggles. You should find that a compliment Mattash as women normally have the knack of switching off to children then coming back later to give them a clout around the earhole. Lucky you didn't get the clout around the earhole. 😁 Edited by member, 5th Dec 2014 5:03 pm

I love it! That could be a comedy sketch in its own right. In fact Monty Python had already worked out that the fairer half of the species never listen - not even to each other - and underlined it in this fantastic routine.... Monty Python on YouTube It can be summed up in that one exchange... "Been shopping?" "Nah.... been shopping". Say no more! Thumbs up

I really hate to disagree with Morgana, but it's simply not true that the only bird that can fly backwards is the humming bird. In Australia, most of the birds of the desert areas fly backwards, to keep the dust out of their eyes. Dreamtime - you'll back me up on that? You must have seen them over there in west Australia!

How interesting and thanks JohnnieWalker, I shall have to enlighten my garden friends and Gill in New Zealand who cares for injured birds over there of this. I knew of some other birds using the aid of wind to fly backwards but not naturally like the humming bird. I don't mind you disagreeing with me 😁 I've learned something new. Seems your friend in Perth has deserted you.😞 Edited by member, 6th Dec 2014 10:29 am

So very true, although I have not studied bird antics here in the west, there is one I am told that sometimes flies upside down - obviously migrated from the UK maybe. So if there is a bird enthusiast looking in I would be interested to know all about such a bird. It's the magpies we have to watch, they swoop down on you to protect their young when nesting. Wave

The incredibly handsome Chad Morgan - one of Australia's great musicians - explains it in this Youtube - The Black Crow Flying Backwards. Big grin Big grin Big grin [Sorry Morgana - pulling your leg this time!]
