6 March 2016 History Spotlights...

Harry Houdini 24th March 1874 - 31st October 1926
Born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest was a magician and escapologist,
stunt performer, actor and film producer, as well as a skeptic and
investigator of spiritualists. Harry Houdini forever changed the world
of magic and escapes, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest
escapologists in history.
When he was four, his family emigrated to the United States. He made
his public début as a 9-year-old trapeze artist, calling himself “Ehrich,
the prince of the air”. Weiss then became a professional magician and
began calling himself by his now famous “Harry Houdini”. He began
in sideshows, and even doubled as a circus “Wild Man”. Initially his
act focused on traditional card tricks, but soon began experimenting with escape acts. In 1893,
he met fellow performer Wilhelmina Beatrice (Bess) Rahner, whom he later married. Bess
replaced Harry’s brother Dash in the act, which became known as “The Houdinis”. For the rest
of Houdini’s performing career, Bess would work as his stage assistant. Houdini’s “big break”
came in 1899 when he met manager Martin Beck. Impressed by Houdini’s handcuffs act, Beck
advised him to concentrate on escape acts and booked him on the Orpheum vaudeville circuit.
Within months, he was performing at the top vaudeville houses in the country and in 1900
Houdini toured Europe. It was in 1908, Houdini put his “handcuff act” behind him and began
escaping from a locked, water-filled milk can. The possibility of failure and death thrilled his
audiences. Houdini also expanded his challenge escape act - in which he invited the public
to devise contraptions to hold him - to include nailed packing crates (sometimes lowered into
the water), riveted boilers, wet-sheets, mailbags, and even the belly of a whale that washed
ashore in Boston. In 1912, Houdini introduced perhaps his most famous act, the Chinese Water
Torture Cell, in which he was suspended upside-down in a locked glass-and-steel cabinet full
to overflowing with water. The act required that Houdini hold his breath
for more than three minutes. Houdini performed the escape for the rest
of his career. Despite two Hollywood movies depicting Houdini dying in
the Torture Cell, the escape had nothing to do with his death. For many
years, he was the highest-paid performer in American vaudeville. One of
Houdini’s most notable non-escape stage illusions was performed at New
York’s Hippodrome Theatre when he vanished a full-grown elephant (with
its trainer) from a stage, beneath which was a swimming pool.
Harry Houdini died of peritonitis secondary to a ruptured appendix. It
has been speculated that Houdini was killed accidentally when a student
hit Houdini in his stomach to test his strength, though Harry was already
suffering from appendicitis, and had not tightened his muscles in time.

Top 10 Tips on How to Sell Your House This Summer

Property experts are, in general, predicting a bumper year in 2016 but it will be a bumpy ride for
the prime market with increased stamp duty levels hitting this sector the hardest.
Derek J Rolls, estate agent, suggests that vendors undertake an MOT on their property before
selling and here are their top 10 tips.

1. First Impression – This can be make or break. If a potential purchaser is put off before
entering the front door then we are doomed. So take a look at the outside of your home as a
stranger might see it. It might be winter and very wet out but for a small sum or some time and
energy you could tidy the garden and plant a pretty pot by your front door.
2. Odour – It may seem minor but the aroma of your house is really very important when you
are selling. A simple diffuser discreetly hidden in the lobby could do the trick. Some people
prefer the advice of coffee and home baked bread but we are realistic. It could take a few weeks
to sell your home and you cannot be there ready to turn on the bread maker at the drop of a hat.
3. Tidy – Be obsessive about this, as it may make or break to a prospective buyer. Our advice is
to have a seriously good clear out before you put the house on the market – even if you bundle
up your prized possessions and take them off site. Prospective buyers want to see clean lines and
uncluttered work surfaces that create a feeling of space.
4. Clean – Fresh, sparkling and inviting would be perfect. Hard to achieve when you have an
active life with pets and children running amuck we know but the cleaner your house is the
easier the easier it is to sell.
5. Temperature – Heating houses is an expensive business. However, taking a client into
a house that has sat empty for the weekend without the heating on is going to put them off
instantly – keep your house ticking over at a pleasant 15 C – it will stop your pipes bursting and
mean that we don’t shiver around the viewing!
6. Animals – People’s pets are loved by the owner but very often just the owner and not
necessarily by the person who is going to buy the house. Pets can also have a strong odour, not
to mention the litter trays, food bowls and paraphernalia that goes with having an animal in the
house. Try to keep evidence to a minimum.
7. Bathrooms – Generally we don’t advise sellers to refit a bathroom prior to sale – unless it
is really ghastly. Do the obvious instead – re-grout, re-silicon, fluffy towels, pleasant scent and
spotless please!
8. Kitchen – Spare a thought for the poor estate agent as you dash out of the house without
loading the dishwasher! We want to take pride in your house when we show prospective buyers
around and leftover breakfast is not the first thing they want to see as they enter the kitchen.
9. Problem Areas – It is possible that you have a part of your house that you would rather not
draw attention to, perhaps somewhere that is mid repair. Our recommendation: don’t put the
house on the market until it is in tiptop condition. Make it your problem, not the purchasers.
10. Brief The Agent –The more we are prepared to answer questions about the house the easier
it will be to sell it and allay any fears that the prospective buyers may have. As an estate agent,
we dislike not having the answers and we particularly dislike not knowing how your gadgetry
works so please do show us how to use the IPad entry system, the drop down cinema and the
fancy lighting system! If we make it look like it is easy to use the buyer will love it. If we don’t
know how it works then the buyer wont.

Independent Estate Agents & Valuers

You may have seen us, but have you met us?

Derek Rolls...
One of the area’s most known and respected Estate Agents. Selling property
locally for over 30 years. Much business is from recommendation and most
of you will have either instructed Derek or know somebody whom he has
helped to move home! Derek has a very valued and sought after opinion on
the local market having experienced and worked through all it can throw. A
charitable chap who devotes much of his spare time to organisations helping
to help others. Currently, one of the sponsors of Moordown Bowls Club, we
are very proud to support a truly local Moordown club, a great community
facility involving many local residents.

Wendy Rolls...
We couldn’t do it without Wendy’s support. Mum and self proclaimed
C.E.O! From a Banking and Finance background fulfilling the admin role
and basically runs the place! Wendy will be there for anybody if needed
especially for those with four legs and a tail. As well as handling the day to
day challenges of a successful estate agency Wendy is voluntarily involved
with local animal search concerns. Her main passion is Dorset Search
Dogs and she’s training hard to raise funds for them in the 2016 London
Marathon. Currently working towards getting Giant Schnauzer, Hattie,
operational as a search dog to find missing persons (and even lost estate
agents) throughout the area.

Martin Traves...
Lives locally and devoted to the industry for 30 years (catching up with
Derek). Worked with a corporate agent and 10 years for a local independent
company. We were thrilled to have Martin join us just over 2 years ago and
he is a vital part of our small team. He has sold more than a few thousand
properties over the years for families, companies, solicitor recommendations
and helped to build investment portfolios. There’s not much goes on he
doesn’t know about. Spare time, volunteers for Bournemouth Lifeguard
Corps, teaches rookie Lifeguards, a qualified beach Lifeguard/Rescue Boat
Crew, doesn’t need too much encouragement to get wet.

We are a very busy agency but always have time for anybody
wanting to sell or buy probably their most valuable asset.
Honest straightforward advice.

14 Travel Feature -
Carnival time in Nice, on the Cote d’Azur By Mags Addison

From our vantage point high above the old town of Nice, we gazed out over the
roof tops at the sun sparkling on the afternoon sea. It was February, and luckily
a perfect sunny day with a blue sky. Everywhere on this elegant coastline is a
celebration of vivid hues, terracotta roofs, and honey coloured buildings, with
bright yellow Mimosa out in bloom. Later we strolled along the promenade, with
palm trees strung out behind us, and the promise of a few spring like days to enjoy.

I love the South of France, and have been here several times. And Nice in the
glamorous Cote d’Azur is an ideal place to slip away for a short winter’s break. But
don’t expect hot temperatures, or constant blue skies - not January to March - but
it is warmer than in the UK, and winter is shorter! And it can be sunny. Also off
season the coastline is less crowded than in high summer, when the area is awash with hordes of tourists and of
course, the Jet Set.

And this time of the year is Carnival time along the Riviera. The Carnival De Nice is a big, noisy, enthusiastic,
programmed event that runs for a couple of weeks. We had grandstand tickets at the Place Massena for the
Evening Parade of Lights, which was full of colour, music, dance, streamers, and confetti - and complete with a
procession of gigantic illuminated floats. The theme was satirical French Humour, but it was entertaining and a
great atmosphere.

The daytime Flower Parade along the seafront promenade was a real family affair enjoyed by old and young alike.
Mimosa sprays were given out to the audience freely; and as the 16 flower decked floats made their final route
around the circuit, local families were poised and ready to catch all the tossed blooms as the floats were stripped
bare. It’s quite a sight to see people leaving with huge armfuls of locally grown blossoms and flowers as their
prized trophies.

It’s so easy to get around. Nice has its own tram service which is clean and at 1.50 Euros a journey cheaper than
buses in the UK. There are 3 rail stations in Nice, and the regional train service is excellent and runs from the port
city of Marseilles along to Ventimiglia on the Italian Boarder. Famous place names like Cannes, Monte Carlo,
Antibes, and Juan- Les- Pins are all on the route, or you can travel over the boarder down to the Italian Riviera -
and the likes of San Remo and Diano Marina – where orange trees grow the length of the town streets.

We hopped on the train to Menton further up the coast, which has its own La Fete Du Citron (Lemon Festival) –
wonderful gigantic fruit sculptures made up entirely of oranges and lemons; this year’s theme being Cinecitta, and
celebrating European films.

The cuisine here is more European than merely French, given the proximity
to the Italian Riviera. So expect pasta, and pizza, but do indulge in Salad
Niçoise, Croque-Monsieur, and Crepes Sucre (with sugar).

Grab a short direct flight to Nice, and explore this marvelous coastline, or
travel anywhere across Europe from here. It’s all possible. Vive La French.

Gales solicitors is a long established Bournemouth firm providing legal advice and
representation to the public since 1948. Over the years we have worked out of Charminster
and Winton and are currently located in Winton. We are an active part of the local
community taking part in local traders groups and events such as the Winton carnival and
the Kinson donkey derby. This year we were also proud to contribute to the Winton in
Bloom fund which helped brighten up Winton high street.

Over the years we have prided ourselves on offering a service which is both professional
and friendly. We have built up a large client base of satisfied and loyal customers. Many of
our clients have used the firm for years and in some cases we are now acting for a second
or even third generation. Whether someone is a long established customer or a brand new
client our aim is to ensure that our customers always want more.

As part of this we have maintained a broad range of services with experts in several
specialisms. This means that we are able to provide most of our clients with a complete
service under one roof. This ensures that we are aware of the wider circumstances of the
case and can pick up issues which might otherwise be missed. It can also help keep the cost

We know that the legal world is changing and as part of that we have introduced new case
management software to improve our service for people moving house. However, we also
know that our clients want a personal service from an experienced professional. For this
reason we continue to ensure that every case is managed by one key person so that you
know who is handling your case rather than having to speak to an anonymous assistant in a
large team.

We also know what it is like to be fobbed off with jargon and we pride ourselves on giving
advice in straightforward English. Whether verbally or in writing we like to keep it clear
and simple.

Whether you have a simple problem or a complex case we can help. If you are looking for
representation in lengthy court proceedings, for help in making a will or house purchase or
just quick advice on your legal rights while you consider what to do we can help.

Give us a call to see how we can help solve your legal puzzles.

Project Indigo

One boy’s adventure through time and space!

Hi, I’m Tom, a local Doctor Who blogger & I write about my adventures online at

We are going to hop in my TARDIS and
travel back in time to the summer of 2015.
Welcome to Puzzlewood in The Forest of
Dean, Gloucestershire - a forest for which
there is no map! Puzzlewood is a filming
location for many TV shows and films-
including a film called Star Wars - The Force
DON’T BLINK! Do you remember in Flesh
and Stone (2010) when the Doctor, River
and Amy are being chased down by the
Weeping Angels? Puzzlewood was the filming
location for the cybernetic forest on board
The Byzantium which provided the passengers with air. As they travelled through the
forest, poor Amy had to keep her eyes shut as she had a Weeping Angel in her eye. Luckily
for me I didn’t run into any Weeping Angels when I was there! Puzzlewood was also a
filming location for The Time of the Doctor (Christmas Special 2013), Matt Smith’s final
episode which saw the Eleventh Doctor regenerate. In this episode the Doctor and Clara
were attacked by the Weeping Angels in a frosty land.
Other things filmed at Puzzlewood include Atlantis, Merlin, Wizards vs Aliens, Jack the Giant
Slayer and Tree Fu Tom. Puzzlewood is so popular because of its very special scenery and
it looks amazing on screen. There is a wall of photos inside showing the many programmes
and films that have used this location.
On show at Puzzlewood, Scowles are the geological feature. Scowles are found throughout
the Forest of Dean and are ancient caves formed millions of years ago in the carboniferous
limestone that have come to the surface due to erosion. The rocks are covered in a
feathery moss that makes the forest so green (and the trees are so green too!) it is the

greenest place I have ever been. It is said
that Puzzlewood was the inspiration for
the forests of Middle Earth in JRR Tolkein’s
books, which sounds pretty reasonable to
I had a really nice time at Puzzlewood and
enjoyed getting lost in the woods and trying
to figure my way out -it was a real puzzle!
I found many things including a magic
doorway and dinosaur feet. The weather
changed all the time and it got wetter and
muddier as the weather changed from good
to bad, good to bad. Top tip - if you visit
wear old clothes and wellies!
Thank you for reading and I hope you will join me again for my next
Doctor Who adventure.

Save Our Swimming

The swimming pool at Moordown St John’s school is in urgent need of repairs and
improvements so a fund raising campaign Save Our Swimming (SOS) has been
launched in a bid to keep it open.

School finance manager Ria Laws said the aim is to raise the money in time for the
work to be carried out in the summer holidays to avoid disruption to lessons during
term time.
“Our pool has been going for more than 40 years and there has been no renovation
since it was built” she said. “Several swimming clubs and schools use the pool and
we are going to do whatever we can to make sure it stays open.”

Last year the school’s Year 4 Swim
Team won the Dorset School
Shield and the school was the
highest participating school in the
country in the Schools Swimathon
Challenge. Nine out of ten pupils
achieve the National Curriculum
Swim Award by the end of Year 3.

Work needed includes replacement of tiles, re-grouting the pool, a deep clean,
redecoration and resurfacing the area around the pool.
The school also aims to deepen the pool by around 40cm by raising the sides
because it is currently classed as a learner pool and is therefore not suitable for more
advanced swimming or for older children.

Planned fund raising initiatives include sponsored swims, fun swim sessions, pool
parties and other activities arranged by the school’s Parents and Friends Association.

Family fun sessions are planned for March 19 and April 23 and will be supervised
by a qualified lifeguard. Proceeds will be donated to SOS.
The pool is also available to rent for private parties on Saturday afternoons.

We’re raising £25,000 to refurbish our swimming pool at Moordown St. John’s
because it is in need of some tender loving care.
This appeal is also currently represented in the Community Matters scheme at
Waitrose in Winton.

Anyone who wishes to support the SOS should contact
Mrs Laws at [email protected]

Hello my name is Baz and I‛m an 8 yr old
terrier x and I‛ve been looking for my forever

home for a while now. I have had a lot of
changes in my life and need someone to

be with me most of the time, I am a very
intelligent boy and have a nice nature and will
happily live with another dog as I get on well

with humans and dogs alike.
My Ideal home is with a family who can give
me plenty of time and patience and who love to
go for walks and although my foster parents
love me and look after me very well I would
really love to have a family of my own.
For more information on Baz or any of the other animals in our care please
contact us on 01202 875000, e-mail: [email protected] or visit our
With spring approaching we are still getting many dogs into our home so will

support us.

1: The first 3 glasses contain milk and
the last three glasses are empty.

By moving only 1 glass can you arrange
them so that they alternate from full
glass to empty glass all the way along?

2: A group of elderly friends decide to do a sponsored walk, but can only manage
short sections at a time. On the first day they cover one fifth of the total distance.
The next day they walk one third of what is left.The following day they continue
and walk one quarter of the remainder and on the fourth day, half of the remaining
distance. They now have 15 miles left to go. What was their total target distance?

3: A bath has two taps and a plug hole.The cold tap on its

own fills the bath in 18 minutes, the hot one in 15 minutes.

The plug hole can drain the bath in 10 minutes with the taps

off. How long will the bath take to fill if I leave both taps on

with the plug left out? Answers on page 38

Contact The Elderly - Volunteer Drivers & Afternoon Hosts Required

Once a month on a Sunday afternoon local elderly people, who are without family in the area, are taken out
by volunteer car drivers for a little ride before going to the homes of volunteer hosts and hostesses for Sunday
afternoon tea.
We only ask our volunteer hosts to entertain up to six elderly people and two
drivers or one driver with up to three elderly people once or twice a year.
A downstairs cloakroom is a must.
Reserve drivers are always wanted when the regulars are unavailable. This
would be possibly two or three times a year.

Elderly people who would like to take part in one of these afternoons are
welcome to join the group but must be able to get in and out of a car, as we
can’t take zimmers or wheelchairs. There is no charge.

Potholes and fly tipping are just two of the street faults that can be reported via
the website along with vandalism, graffiti, dog fouling
and many other common community issues.

While most of us know that the council are responsible for fixing these things,
we may not know which council, let along which department in which council.
With FixMyStreet, all you have to do is locate the problem on a map, and select
a category: the site then sends it off to the right place to get it fixed.

All reports are published on the site, as well as being sent to the council.
Browsing your own postcode can be interesting, as you soon learn what the
persistent problems are in your area, and whether or not they are being fixed.
There’s also the opportunity to discuss individual reports in the comments

FixMyStreet comes from the UK not-for-profit organisation mySociety, and
is one of its longest-running and most-used services. It is just one of several
projects aimed at making it easier for citizens to get things changed in their

broken paving slab or a flickering streetlight, all you need to remember is

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal
cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what
to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed
to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the

donkey. He invited all his neighbours to come over and help
him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the
well. At first, the donkey realised what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to
everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally
looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt
that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off
and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the
animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as
the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
The moral of this story? Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The
trick to dealing with it is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a
steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping & never giving up!

Shake it off and take a step up.
Alternative ending: The donkey later came back, and bit the farmer
who had tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected and

the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.
Moral #2: When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass,

it always comes back to bite you.

Take care of your feet...
Policeman’s Heel

There are many causes of heel pain. The most
common is policeman’s heel (plantar fasciitis),
a very painful condition felt on the lower inner
border of the heel. Patients complain that it is
very painful when first getting out of bed in the
morning. What has happened is that the structure
that supports the arch of the foot (plantar fascia)
has stretched and is injured where it is connected
to the heel bone. It will heal itself over around 9
months without treatment but during this time it
can make walking very difficult.

Most sufferers want to know the cause and how
they can avoid it happening again. Common
factors are an increase in weight, taking up a new
activity such as sport or dancing, perhaps standing
on a ladder for long periods whilst decorating or maybe just age, generally middle age
onwards. Some people are predisposed to the condition as they have low arched feet
often walking with a ‘10 to 2’ gait.

Now there are a multitude of arch supports and spongy heel pads which can help but
can be hit and miss. The condition needs to be assessed by a podiatrist who will have
the knowledge to prescribe orthotics (insoles) that should correct the position of the
feet, taking the strain off of the painful parts of the feet. Wearing trainers can help and
there are shops that specialise in trainers made to accommodate various foot problems.
Strapping up the foot so that the arch is supported can give instant relief. Another simple
treatment is the roller exercise. Put a tin or jar in the fridge then when you are sat down
watching the television roll the affected arch over the jar/tin for ten minutes. Some GPs
will give a cortisone injection which can be a quick fix.

We have been using low level laser treatment, which makes the condition less painful.
Although laser treatment may not speed up the healing it certainly makes it more

There is no beating the taste of truly fresh
fruit and veg, especially when it’s yours!

Gardening Tips for March

Prepare your vegetable & seed beds. If you are a couple of weeks late, plant your seeds anyway,
they will almost certainly catch up. Start chitting your seed potatoes. Prune back Wisteria and
any conservatory climbing plants.
March with its warmer days is the time to get started setting seeds, tidying up borders, cutting back
winter shrubs, Cornus (dogwood) Salix (willow). Pruning Autumn Raspberries, Blue Berries,
Goose Berries and any week stems of Tay & Blackberry. Give all soft fruit a top dressing of
Sulphate of Potash, general fertilizer such as Growmore and mulch around the base. Replace the
top layer of compost and replace with new.
Plant Shallots, Onion sets, Early Potatoes. Plant Summer flowering bulbs like Gladioli and Dahlias
when there is no risk of frost.
Cut the grass on any dry days. Start opening the greenhouse.
Start feeding any fish in the pond, clean and restart any water features and
pumps. Remove the weeds as you see them before they become a chore.
Slugs are hungry at this time of year and top on their choice of menu
are the new shoots that are growing fast as a result of the mild winter.
Do be mindful of Hedgehogs although the jury is out on the danger to
Hedgehogs on pellets containing Metaldehyde. There are Nematode Slug
killers that work and are no risk to other animals, but do check the labels.

Gardening Tips for April

Keep weeds under control. Protect fruit blossom from hungry birds. Tie in climbing and rambling
roses. Sow hardy annuals and herb seeds. Increase the water given to houseplants. Feed hungry
shrubs and roses. Sow new lawns or repair bare patches. Apply a general-purpose fertiliser to
borders and beds. Put supports in place for herbaceous plants, peonies, other heavy flowering
blooms and perennials before they get too large. Criss-cross strings from hidden or decorative
posts work well. Remove faded daffodil and tulip flowers, nipping off the heads and seed pods.
Apply chemical or biological control if vine weevil larvae damage or wilting is evident.

Chit and plant out second early potatoes in the first half of the month, maincrop potatoes in the
second half. Sow outdoors for beetroot, carrots, Swiss chard, summer cauliflower, lettuce, leeks,
radish, turnip, spring and pickling onions, peas and perpetual spinach in well-prepared soil. Dwarf
French Beans and Sweet Corn under cloches later in month.
Sow indoors for marrows, courgettes, pumpkins, squash, sweet peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers,
aubergines, celery, celeriac, salads and globe artichokes.
Sow a seedbed of sprouting broccoli, cauliflowers and cabbages for planting out in June or July.

Hands Off Ensbury Park Library!

Bournemouth Council want to move
the library from it’s present location in
Columbia Road to a shared facility in the
Bournemouth Learning Centre on Slades
Farm Road, a move strongly opposed by
the users of Ensbury Park Library .
The room offered is less than half the
present floor area and thus reducing the
books shelves by 50%, and at a
location too remote for the community.

The lack of space will mean the closure of :
Mother & Toddlers Reading Group, Seniors Friday Afternoon Club

Holiday Activity Mornings For Young People,
Councillors Surgeries, Book Club.

To oppose this move EPLUG ( Ensbury Park Library Users’ Group) have
mounted a campaign involving ward councillors, a Facebook Page,
On-line and written petitions have reached over 320 signatures so far and a
deputation to the Community Overview and Scrutiny panel at the Town Hall.
A council issued “Consultation document “ was issued to all libraries and the
results of this are expected towards the end of March. It is expected that this
will show an overwhelming majority against the move and offering alternative
proposals to make better use of the present library location.
You can find the On-line petition here:
Written petitions can still be found at the Post Offices in Columbia Road and
Hillview Parade as well as at “SNAPS” also in Hillview Parade

This one is for everyone who... has kids, has had kids, is going to have kids,
was a kid, knows a kid. I guess that means all of us!!

I was packing for a business trip and my three year old daughter was having a
wonderful time playing on the bed. At one point she said,’ Daddy, look at this’ ,

and stuck out two of her fingers.
Trying to keep her entertained, I reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in my mouth and

said, ‘Daddy’s gonna eat your fingers,’ pretending to eat them.
I went back to packing, looked up again and my daughter was standing on the bed staring at

her fingers with a devastated look on her face.
I said, ‘What’s wrong, sweety?’ She replied, ‘What happened to my bogie?’

Married life is very frustrating. In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the wife
listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the husband listens. In the third year, they

both speak and the neighbours listen.

After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, “You know, I was a fool when I married you.” And
the husband replied, “Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn’t notice.”

A little boy looked at his dad and said, “Is it true, Dad, that in some parts of Africa
a man doesn’t know his wife until he marries her?” His father answered,
“ at happens in most countries, son.”
