Paul replied to Rich Lane's discussion Courtesy is putting me in a quandry
"It's just a nice pattern. Funny, here in the U.K. I wouldn't assume anyone wearing it was a Christian. People wear T-shirts with all sorts of variants of symbols and flags just because they're cool T-shirts. Now a swastika would be…"

Paul replied to LarryL's discussion Congratulations to the British
"Good article but I don't think it quite captures the burgeoning disinterest and distrust we have in religion here. People who spontaneously bring up their religion are generally assumed to be a tad weird or simple. Going to church is…"

Paul replied to Prefer Not to Say's discussion A question to ex-believers

"Fair list, though I take issue with the mention of Transcendental Meditation. The ORGANIZATION behind it was screwy from back in the mid-70's when I was with them full time, and I'll stipulate that with no argument. However, the technique…"

"There are Indeed Many to choose from, but the freak-outs over the LHC really surprised me. A girl in China (I think) actually killed herself out of fear! It is a good example of why good science education is so important!"

Oh Paul, perhaps our house is not the right place for you to visit! We live on the very edge of the rainforest, so our house is host to a variety of spiders - some the size of your palm. We've also had a snake in the house - it curled itself up inside Mum's Akubra hat while it (the hat) hung on the hat stand. We have a resident green tree snake (non poisonous) called Slithery, but in summer we also get highly venomous red belly black snakes around the house. Luckily, they're very lazy and not much interested in biting anyone unless you actually step on them - which we take care not to do. Oh, we also have ticks in the garden - brought in by the bandicoots - which is rather unpleasant. We keep a 'tick kit' on hand to rip the little suckers out. Apart from that, it's quite safe and we DO enjoy having our pommy friends come to stay. [Evil Grin!]

Hey Paul! Nice to meet a fellow oenophile (aka boozer!). I lived in the UK for 12 months, many moons ago. I've been through Bristol, but never stayed there. I've also been through Kent en route to Europe but, again, didn't have time to stop. My grandmother used to go picking hops in Kent, though, in the early 1900s.

I lived in London (Swiss Cottage); Salcombe, South Devon; and Morthoe (near Woolacombe), North Devon. My Mum and I also took a horse-drawn gypsy caravan around the laneways of Llangorse Lake near Abergavenny for a few days. Quite an experience! Luckily Mum proved more proficient than the horse between the shafts. ;-)

Anyway, nice to meet you!

Swapped the hippo picture for me with a spade. The spade is a normal size and I am a giant.
