Thursday 14th May 2020 – Day Fifty Two

Good morning

I receive daily thanks for the updates and comments about the work that goes into this blog. However, I do think the gratitude needs to be shared with everyone. This is very much a community project, with so many of YOU sharing and contributing which makes this task that much easier to complete – so from me to you – THANK YOU for all your efforts, ideas, suggestions and words of advice

Please keep them coming!

Please get in touch if you need help!


 

What can I share with you today?

FUNNY SIDE OF LIFE

From Jerry – Are we bored yet?

Which letter is silent in the word “Scent,”  the S or the C?

Do twins ever realize that one of them was unplanned?

Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn’t it be called double V?

 


 

That’s all for now!
