Thus the fat man’s mind acts as his body acts—evenly, unhurriedly, easefully and comfortably. The florid man’s mind has the same quickness and resourcefulness that distinguish all his bodily processes. The muscular man’s mind acts in the same strenuous way that his body acts, while the bony man’s brain always has an immovable quality closely akin to the boniness of his body.

For what passes as entertainment in the jump household – I offer this little insight.

Apparently pooh bear has ADHD and OCD, Tigger is hyperactive and owl is dyslexic : yes, but it’s quite depressing to then read that given the chance the people who did the study would be drugging up half the forest – mainly to cure these problems.

The thing about having anytime off in the winter, is you quickly forget just how dark it is when you leave the house in the morning. of-course it’s not really* you just forget.
*Technically it is darker (by one minute on th 3rd Jan compared to the 24th Dec), that’s because even though the 21st Dec was the shortest day, the sun continues to come up later each day until 5th January, it’s the nights that get longer first. I have thought about this for all of around 30seconds I my rudimentary understanding of the seasons means i can’t tell you why it happens like this – the BBC claim it’s because the earth doesn’t go round the sun in a circle.
There used to be only one capital each year but with the enlargement of the European Union, they decided to have two a year, makes a bit of a mockery of the term capital (especially since pre 1999 it was the European City of Culture). anyway 2008 is the second such year of two capitals so lets not forget the Stravander Region in Norway which is also European Capital of Culture 2008.
