For most of today, I have been laid out on the sofa, quietly dying, but inbetween dying, I have been putting the finishing touches to the imaginatively titled, A Large Mango site for my friend, Ben. I managed to get my act together and print out my CV and covering letter to send to Saltash school, wish me luck! I have also collated a load of data to work out how many countries are represented in my SETI@home team, for those of you that care, its 36. I am planning on having a nice quiet night in tonight, 3 nights of drinking has caught up with me, need to recharge the old batteries.
I’ll leave you will this interesting idea;
German women fed up with their partners grumbling about long shopping trips have been given the perfect answer for all concerned. The women can leave their fellas at a special ‘kindergarten’ especially for men, offering beer and entertainment. Men are given a name badge on arrival and for around ?10 they get two beers, a hot meal, televised football and games to play. Manager of the new Nox Bar in Hamburg, Alexander Stein, said: “The women are issued a receipt for their partners when they hand them in and can pick them up again when they return it to us later.” Mr Stein said the idea for the Saturday afternoon men’s creche, called Maennergarten, came from a female customer who thought it would be a good way of getting shot of her husband so she could shop in peace. “She found it all too stressful and thought this might be the solution,” he said. “Both were very happy with the way it turned out. “Last week the men had a remote control car to play with. Next week there’s going to be a mini racetrack.” The “creche” will also be offering a drilling workshop. One man left at the club said: “It beats sitting around in shoe shops, that’s for sure.”
