  • Humour:

Have you noticed how fairly ordinary terms are now being “jazzed up” into things humorously pretentious? Yesterday I laughed when told that the receptionist at my doctor’s surgery was now a “care navigator.” However my favourite is “water transfer solutions” which is a hosepipe manufacturer!


  • Quotation from Theodor Roosevelt:


It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stubbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory or defeat.
