"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Five a day

The time had come for another 'Big Tidy Up of NASA' which generally happens every few weeks when I can't bear to look at the mess on Keith's computer desk any longer. This time it was resembling an extension of the shed, as usual so I delivered my ultimatum, along the lines of,
"If that stuff isn't moved by you by the end of tomorrow, it will be moved by me, to the bin."
And so it happened. Keith duly tidied up and displayed the results of his labours as soon as I came in.
"Look!" he said, "and I've even got one of my five a day!"

There's something quite sweet about clockwork technology sitting alongside a computer!

Yes, Lucy, wow indeed!
SP, yes there is, especially when Keith thinks it will pass for healthy eating. ;)

You need to invest in a screen - you know the floral sort they used to have on casters in hospitals. That way NASA will be out of sight and out of mind and also there will be the side benefit of making your quaint Welsh miner's cottage more fashionable.

I'm afraid that would look even worse than having NASA in full view, YP!
