Who Counts as a Child ?

I've just spotted an article about unaccompanied child refugess. It was illustrated with a picture of children who appeared in the age range six to nine.

What proportion of the refugees admitted as unaccompanied children will be in that age range, and what proportion will be thugs aged seventeen and three quarters, or even 20 year old thugs pretending to be seventeen and three quarters ?

A Cafe with an intriguing name

Making a virtual exploration of the local amenities I discovered a cafe  called Totty teas in the nearby village of Lubbenham I wonder if the proprietors are aware of the resonance of that name.

I plan to visit in the Spring. Shall I be brave enough to ask about the name?

Where are a Fish's Loins ?

I've just seen an advertisement for cod's loins.

Loins are where the legs join the body, fish have no legs, therefore they have no loins !!!
