Batemans Bay’s Ted Richards says that for those of you who got a home gym equipment gift for Christmas, “it’s worth checking the instructions to see if they show an easy way to get it back.” to pack up so that after a respectful time, it will be easy to take him to the nature strip ready for community collection of the hard litter.”
“My son wowed me on New Year’s Day with his Fibonacci greeting: ‘Happy 1123!'” writes Julian Neylan of Dulwich Hill. “A rare event and a good omen for the coming year. Certainly better than the first day of greeting in 2001: ‘Oi-oi-oi!’”
Lane Cove’s Colin Taylor-Evans chides Granny for assuming all readers would know the synopsis of The Dice Man (C8) which might be timely for those looking for a solution for the New Year. “Make the commitment, write down six options on a piece of paper every morning, including choices that can change your life, roll the dice and go for it!”
Helen Croaker of Fadden (ACT) has a theory that “teaspoons (C8) and dessert spoons are the pupal stage of forks. A constant metamorphosis seems to be taking place in my kitchen drawer. Observing numbers over many years supports this theory.”
As well as little spoon collectors who might keep an eye on your teaspoons (C8), Bowral’s Caz Willlis notes that there are also “metal banging guys, like silversmiths. Teaspoons can be made into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or if they’re real silver, they can be melted down to make something else. I use dessert spoons and soup spoons to make sculptural glasses like Dame Edna, Elton John etc.” Caz may clear up another mystery, adding that “silversmiths are also known to polish metal with a sock or two”. Perhaps investigate whether there is a secret silversmith lurking among your acquaintances?
A skeptic of alternative medicine, Mosman’s Alan Phillips noted that he “gently questioned my acupuncturist about the underlying science of the procedure. But try as I might, it was impossible to pin him down and, surprisingly, my questioning just seemed to pin him.”
“Did I miss a memo about Australia’s conversion to metric dozens?” asks Glenhaven’s Seppo Ranki. “A recent shipment of a pricey wine dubbed the ‘tasting dozen’ arrived with just ten bottles. Apparently not a mistake as the bill only showed ten, but the bill was still the normal price for 12 bottles.”
