Weebles wobble, but they DONT FALL DOWN!!!

Wish I had seen that episode of 'are you being served'. When I can find it on CBC I really enjoy it. Of course that's the advantage of living on the Canadian border, we get Canadian tv--and HOCKEY!!!

Hey we get hockey every Sunday and Wednesday on Channel 5. However it is rediculously early in the morning. This from a guy who's been h2g2ing at 4 in the morning on a work night. smiley - winkeye

you mean we're supposed to sleep sometime--NOT stay on h2g2 all night????

hmmmmmm...this may account for my feeling of exhaustion. Or maybe it's just my age. so hard to tell. But I certainly wont blame h2g2.
no no no no no no
'cause then I might think I was addicted or something.

I love it. I love it. I've used it so much I can draw Disney figures and stuff on it - not just boxes attached to boxes that you say is "A rwo of houses" or boxes attached to boxes which is "my fambly"

A great toy, but one that I'm hopelessly lost with. The American humor columnist Dave Barry talked about great straight lines and really spastic diagonals. I've seen images that I can't believe.

The trick really is in turning both handles at the same time all of the time. Clearly sometimes you have to have different rates of turn and sometimes you will alter the direction of one or both of the wheels but you can probably get it to do loops ina messy sort of way. All you need to do is get used to them and make them do slightly more what you want them to do.

Never take one of your ahnds off or you are back to the horizontal and vertical lines again!

I loved speak and spell when I was younger. I spent many a long and productive hour in front of the TV playing with that fantastic toy. It was only ruined when my mother replaced the english cartrige with a German one and then I refused to play with it. Not only was Speak and spell made famous in the film ET but it taught me how to spell on a basic level from which I have never progressed. Ahh bless!!

I've got a few to throw into the ring.

Kalidescopes - great fun and no two patterns were ever the same. I still think they're great now.
Magic painting books. Just wash water over them with a brush & behold the picture is coloured in.
Colouring books - still a favourite pastime. Yes I know all a bit arty.

smiley - cheers
