I have to admit to being completely baffled by a news story over the
weekend which reported a Ryanair passenger eating an £8930
winning lottery scratchcard! Why? Quite simply he wanted his winnings
there and then, mid-flight, and was told he'd have to wait until the
plane landed because it was such a large amount of cash. So, in what can
only be described as one of the most expensive temper tantrums ever, he
ate the ticket. Quite what he hoped it would get him I really don't
know, but I'm sure it'll go down (no pun intended) as one of the

Now, my sympathies go out to the male half of the human species because until recently, you've had to suffer not only man flu but other incurable male-only diseases (such as the inability to put things back where you got them from). And my sympathies also to all the women out there who have to live with said afflicted person.
British Summer Time (an oxymoron if ever there was one) officially ended last weekend and this work week has been the first of many in the long winter months ahead where twilight is setting in before the work day finishes. But what price are we paying for that extra hour in bed we all enjoyed on Sunday morning?

Putting back the clocks has been an annual event in the UK since 1916
when the then-Government adopted a Daylight Saving system to save coal

million Brits are affected by the condition every year, suffering with
problems sleeping, lethargy, loss of concentration, anxiety and over
eating (it's no coincidence that companies like WeightWatchers see a massive uptake by the beginning of Spring).
