Do we even need cards? Who invented that? What is the point in sending cards to those we see only at weddings and funerals.

IMHO, much better speaking to your friends and family

bah humbug

:PASTE:
Henry Cole invented the Greating cards and thereby the greetng cards in 1846. He was bored with the idea of writing letters to people so he hired an artist to create a pleasant sense,cranked up the lithographic printer he had in the back room and manually coloured in the picture Instant time saver he quickly figured the financial potential of the item and put a thousand on sale.

That is the true story of Greeting cards
:END PASTE:

‘er indoors has gone back to England for a family reunion, and I asked her just to have a quick look at house prices etc (know what I mean?).

When she phoned this morning to ask me to measure the bedroom curtains, I tried to remind her about the house prices etc and she was really rude to me, she was shouting something about it pissing down and being full of . . . I think she meant foreigners, it started with an F.
