Anyone for a game?

I call this one, ‘Two’s!’

You never know what you’ll find

under each card…

Would you like to keep going?

If so, you get a strawberry!

Hmmmm, interesting combination,

strange predicament you’ve found yourself in…

One more?

Now you know how Joan of Arc must have felt!

When asked to help start* a Revolution,

nothing says “I showed up” quite like a costume,

but, of course, it’s best if your costume reflects you!

And the more feathers, the better!

Bigmouth la da dum da da
Bigmouth la da da da
Bigmouth strikes again
And I’ve got no right to take my place
In the human race

And now I know how joan of arc felt
Now I know how joan of arc felt
As the flames rose to her roman nose
And her megadrive started to melt

The Smiths

There is a light and it never goes out!

There is a light and it never goes out!

There is a light and it never goes out!

    hey joanna, i thought you’d be interested in this:

    last week my students told me that google is the worst search engine to use because of the amount of power that it needs to run… they offered this as an alternative, though, of course, it is still powered by google…


    do you know if there are any search engines that use *less* power than google?

    I wrote a comment on your last blog, but the internet site wouldn’t accept it. Why is that?
