What The?

Message from Windows
This was a note at the bottom of the update window!
"Windows Update might require an update before you can install updates for Windows or other programs".

Tidy and ordered - NOT!
I thought about sorting all my stuff into sections; animals, computers, kids, religion, crafty stuff, etc., which would undoubtably have taken quite a while, with bits and pieces all over the place.  Fortunately for my sanity, I had second thoughts, so everything is posted fairly randomly, as I find it among the depths of the folders and boxes.

"The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilisation"
                                         Ralph Waldo Emerson

The following quotes are all anonymous
"Nothing is of any use if you don't know where it is when you want it"
"A racehorse is an animal that can take several thousand people for a ride at the same time"
"A horse is the only animal you are allowed to hammer nails into"

"It's a miracle that curiosity survives formal education"

"God doesn't give you the people you want; he gives you the people you need"

"I feel young, but my body doesn't agree"

Points to ponder

  • If it's more logical to believe we were descended from apes than made by God, then where did the apes come from?
  • If the Big Bang created the universe, what was it that went "Bang"?
  • If evolution is true, why do mothers only have two hands?
      During the Second World War, Group Captain John Cunningham  gained the nickname 'Cats Eyes Cunningham'.  His squadron operated at night, and the British Government encouraged rumours that he was able to see in the dark because he ate a lot of carrots.
      This was a deliberate falsehood, designed to hide the fact that he was testing a newly developed (and top secret) airborne radar system.
      It seems doubtful the Germans were would believe such a story, but it helped persuade British children to eat the one vegetable that remained in constant supply throughout the war.

An assortment of carrots collected when I worked in a market garden packing shed.   The white one is also a carrot, not a parsnip.
