Life 2 (based on icon from tamnonlinear)

Hi

My work internet connection is flakey - only just managed to get to LJ. I'll do some quotes later if I can.

Birthdays are far less exciting as you get older :(
Ahh well

Peace to you all

Thoughts

Here is a thing to think about ...

What are the 20 most spoken languages in the world?
I think my list is by the number of people who speak the language throughout the world either as their first "Mother Tongue" or as a language they use for everyday communication.

Just to make it easier why not guess the top 5 ... I'm sure most of you will get at least 2 wrong! Go on, reply here with your guesses and I'll put you out of your misery later :)

Peace
