  1. You eat asparagus on pizza. Peeled and boiled to death beforehand. The white variety, you understand. Yum yum yum. Can’t wait for the season to start.

  2. Do I remember correctly that “sentry” is feminine in French?

    Golly, google translate is brill: “la sentinelle”.

  3. And from the Other Bloke in Italy: Buon Compleanno.

    My dear Dearieme, if you saw some of the Google translations, in either direction, which I receive to correct you would split your sides.

  4. Happy Birthday Tim – are you aware your Birthday occurs within a week of a certain Retired Accountant in Downham Market…..?(Although I believe he is five years older)

  5. A lot of people believe that “he” and “his” can be gender-neutral, but it simply isn’t true, as is easily demonstrated with this sentence:

    Was it your mother or your father who broke his leg last year?

    The correct gender-neutral pronoun, as used by Shakespeare and Austen, is “they”. It’s not a politically correct neologism at all; it’s just that some people have wrongly persuaded themsleves that it is.
