Hello again iiwiiers
I've got a 'tear and share' here. Where did they come from, you wonder? As a noun phrase, you mean? I have been unable to find out. I think it's quite a recent noun phrase. It seems to have been an adjectival phrase until recently, used for different things, like a big bag of sweeties, or garlic bread, as in 'tear and share' garlic bread, which is basically what this is, only it's cheese and onion and garlic. And it's called a 'tear and share'. I'm having the first bit now. It's not bad for the reduced price. I find it annoying that it's not easier for me to track down the origin of the phrase though. As far as I can tell the date options in Google don't seem to allow me to request only results that are at least a certain amount of old. And the internet archive isn't searchable at all. Maybe one day it will be.
I don't know if I'll be busy tomorrow or not, so there's no way of knowing right now what you'll get, isn't that exciting? Only one way to find out, of course.
The guvverment are wanting to know what people think British road signs should look like in the future. I think they should switch stuff around to keep drivers on their toes and aid concentration, for instance the current sign for 'straight ahead' would mean 'no entry', and the motorway junction information signs should give details of the previous junction, not the next one. And the 'Transport' and 'Motorway' fonts are too smart and intimidate some drivers, the signs should all be in Comic Sans. The environment is a big issue these days and the signs need to change to reflect that - we need big signs indicating where all the pieces of litter are, to make people think, and make drivers concentrate so as not to get distracted by them. I might design some signs myself and send them in. Even if there isn't a prize, just for the satisfaction of getting my signs made official (because they'd obviously win).
Broccoli might help to protect the lungs! That's great news, I can smoke as much as I like without worrying about my health now as long as I smoke plenty of broccoli as well. I've never tried smoking broccoli, I hope it doesn't taste horrible. It's very nice when eaten, but that's probably not a guarantee that it will be nice to smoke. I'd want someone to manufacture a sort of broccoli tobacco that I could use anyway, I would imagine that preparing broccoli for smoking oneself would be a bit of a palaver.
that's all from me for now
see you around
