Morning peeps. Guess which one caught my eye today?


In our civilization, and under our republican form of government, intelligence is so highly honored that it is rewarded by exemption from the cares of office.

The worst thing about Europe is that you can't go out in the middle of the night and get a Slurpee.
Tellis Frank

I think that one possible definition of our modern culture is that it is one in which nine-tenths of our intellectuals can't read any poetry.
Randall Jarrell (1914 - 1965)

I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.

I've ranked them 1,3,4,2.

#1 is the only reason I watch the news... to see if the lunatics are still in charge of the asylum!

#3 - don't get me started on the state of our educational system - asin general state! There are some very good teachers out there - but I think the problems are found with the younger ones who've never had the benefit of an old style grammar school education - and they don't realise that there's a whole different world out there to what they think they know!
