Haven't dropped him yet, however I glanced away for half a second last week and he managed to lean forward, roll, and hit the tiled foor from the sofa. Crapped myself. Got me out of babysitting duties for a few days though!

Pretty amazing though, wish we did it yearsa ago!

Terrifying mate.

I was up only half of each plate so I don't have to do it regularly. Works well.

When I first went to Riyadh, the locals were all fascinated about why we 'celebrate' a crucifixion............... I couldn't explain it, to be honest, other than to say it isn't a celebration, it's a memorial...........

Maybe it is becuase we do not celebrate the crucifixion. The celebration is the Sunday...

What on earth are you talking about? Since when has Easter Sunday been about simply his crucifixion?

I think he means that Christians don't celebrate the crucifixion, they celebrate the resurrection and the rolling away of the stone from the tomb is symbolised by the rolling of Easter eggs.

*NOTE* The above may be, and probably is complete hogwash.....but thats religion for you.
