    Crazy thing isn't it?

    Just taken a chewing gum from the box and it has three pictures on top of it, a car, a house and a train with the words "in the", "at", and "on the" above the respective pictures.

    Why does one drive in a car, but travel on a train, one is in both isn't one?

    Wait, maybe it's a participation thing...

    I'm going home in a bit. Might have a lay down when I get in.

    Practise makes us a little better, it doesn't make us perfect.

    Fantastic isn't it?

    Try 'Mother Tongue' by Bill Bryson. Fascinating and hilarious!

    Thinking takes no time at all! Surely you can think and do at the same time? I do, I think.
