We are going to win the lotto next week and will be taking a holiday to decide what to do with our winnings.

Just so you all know.

Among other things,this, from Jane's Defence Weekly pissed me off;
"Israel to acquire sixth Dolphin sub
This is a revised version of a story published on 2 February. Israel and Germany have recently signed a contract finalising the sale of a sixth Type 800 Dolphin-class diesel-electric attack submarine to Israel, according to Christian Schmidt, the German State Secretary of Defence. Schmidt told Jane's on 2 February that the contract was signed in late December and that Berlin had agreed to heavily subsidise the cost"

Why would Germany subsidise Israel? I wonder if they subsidise any other countries.

We thought we were going to be doing that this week, with the $325 million powerball draw from last Saturday.

Yet, here I sit ...

Why would Germany subsidise Israel? Hmm, tricky one that...something to do with guilt maybe? Some unpleasantness in the thirties and forties?

It's hard not to - we usually wish we could take it on ourselves instead! Funny how we gripe and moan about having a little cold, but we'd take on much worse for our kids......
