The Soundtrack of My Life: Pink Floyd, The Wall, Dortmund, 1981
Oh the shark babe has such teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack knife has ol’ MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it out of sight
You know when that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears ol’ MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red
On the sidewalk, Oh Sunday morning don’t you know
Lies a body just oozing life
And Someone's sneaking around the corner
Could that be our boy Mack the knife?
The Soundtrack of My Life: If I was a boy (not exactly Beyonce, but better)
Marmaduke Scarlet: “It certainly seems very quiet.”
Digweed: “That would be the absence of the ladies, then, sir.”
"Miss Lemon: The trouble is, Mr Poirot, they just don’t understand the letters.
Hercule Poirot: Why not?
Miss Lemon: They’re Chinese, Mr. Poirot.
Hercule Poirot: The Bulldog Breed laundry is Chinese?
Miss Lemon: Yes, Mr Poirot.
Hercule Poirot: What is the world coming to Miss Lemon?
Miss Lemon: I’m sure I couldn’t say, Sir, but when the boy brings your laundry back, he brings the letters back too for me to explain to him.
Hercule Poirot: And you do.
Miss Lemon: No?
Hercule Poirot: Why not?
Miss Lemon: I don’t speak Chinese.
Hercule Poirot: So what do you say to him?
Miss Lemon: Well, I… I say “Him collar no vely good starchy.” I show him the collars and say it.
Hercule Poirot: Hastings my friend, you spent some years in China, did you not?
Captain Hastings: Oh absolutely. Fine fellows, fine fellows.
Hercule Poirot: Did you ever have any trouble with your laundry.
Captain Hastings: Yes I did as a matter of fact.
Hercule Poirot: And what did you say to them?
Captain Hastings: Well, I said “Him collar no vely good starchy.”
Miss Lemon: That’s where I got it from, Sir. I asked the Captain, knowing he’d been in the East.
Hercule Poirot: But Hastings, my collars they do not get any better.
Captain Hastings: No. Mine didn’t either, now I come to think about it.”
We all start somewhere: The Little Vampire
Wash food before preparing it
Wash your hands before eating or preparing food
Keep cold food cold and hot food hot (never eat reheated rice)
Look each way twice before crossing the road
Be kind to people, animals, plants and the earth
Relax like a baby does, and you will not be harmed
Learn First Aid
Follow the Highway Code
If you have a problem, make a journey. You will find the answer.
Stop thinking about infinity.
