Dangerous! I considered for a few seconds joining. But I don't have time
for _another_ fun social 'group! [I did wonder if you have to be a gran,
or at least female, though.]

One of the items I always purchase when in the US is duct tape. Over
there it comes in all sorts of fancy colours. The patio in our back
garden has a small step in it and I am always worried that someone will
trip so I put gold duct tape all along the edge to make it obvious. And
I have just stuck bright yellow strips on our new suitcases - makes them
easy to identify in airport baggage claim.

Wonderful stuff.

You can get it in all sorts of colours, patterns and designs over here too.
SiL, who misses the opportunity to acquire it from work, got some with
galaxies printed on it in his Christmas stocking :)

General Norman Schwarzkopf was asked if he thought there was room for
forgiveness toward terrorists.
The General said, "I believe that forgiving them is God's function...
OUR job is to arrange the meeting."

However, there is now a new product around which, for some tasks,
well outperforms duct tape. This amusing advert (1) explains it
all.



(1) The fact that I am even considering linking to an advert
(which I only saw because of a link elsewhere) instead of
avoiding/ blanking it, demonstrates its difference.
