Hmmm, I'm currently sitting in front of the PC barefooted. I am therefore not in my best shoes, nor am I in bed.

In the words of Glaswegian philosopher, Gerry Cinnamon

“You know it could be a canter
If you were just a wee bit less of a wker
More than half of the time”

Wise words for many on ph, perhaps?

Don't try to be the person others want you to be; Be the person you are!

Two is one, and one is none.

Wherever I go, there I am.
