Paul secretly quit eating meat too ;-)
BTW, vegan dinners from the last two days, 30 minutes kitchen time each. (This was for one guest - I love people who eat as much and like pigs!)
1) paella (it's gluten-free) and a soup of my own recipe
2) traditional/own recipe soup, coulibiac (it has now earned an English translation of its name!) and fresh salad.
Simplest!

'Mummy I'm sorry for this' - Heart-rending last words of cancer-stricken boy, 5, who died in mum's arms
Charlie Proctor from Lancashire, England, was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood liver cancer in 2016, Britain's Daily Mail reports.
Denied a liver transplant through the National Health Service, his parents Amber Schofield and Ben Proctor crowdfunded for the life-saving treatment in the US.
But they managed to raise less than half of the $NZ1.636 million they needed in the short time they had left with their son, and doctors then gave Charlie only days to live.
RIP

I managed to get a job in a hospital morgue with a BA (Mod) maths degree and a smattering of Dutch. These days - being a polyglot - means I would,be overqualified.

None. They were all in an advanced state of rigor mortis when they arrived in my department as we say in the trade. We even once has a case of trigger mortis.

Blink 182 Fans Sent Into A Frenzy After It’s Revealed The UK & US Pronounce Name Differently

I pronounce it the way the band do, because that's how I've heard it on the radio and it never occurred to me that people could pronounce it differently
Same as the Eagles song,
My Maserati Does one eighty-five
I lost my license Now I don't drive
Sir Winston Churchill is alleged to have said that Britain and the US were "two nations divided by a common language," although like many of these quotes, he may not have actually said it. That quote is also attributed to Shaw (GBS) and Wilde.
Churchill's wit of course was legendary

I never found him witty. Not even at Gallopoli nor El Alamein.
Only 1 thing worse than being witty..

That quote is also attributed to Shaw (GBS) and Wilde.
Both said it?
