Housework Wards off Breast Cancer

A new study shows that women who clean their houses on a regular basis are less likely to get breast cancer. Supposedly, moderate exercise such as this a few times a week works better than strenuous exercise once or twice a week.

I don't particularly like cleaning the house, but at least I feel better about not being able to afford a cleaning service (like everyone else I know).

Christmas Fun

Some fun Christmas activities: Type in a verb to make Santa do silly things. Beware - he can be naughty. Write an e-mail to Santa or play some Christmas games. Track his movements on Christmas Eve.

Sydneyisms of the Week

1. "My tummy is upsick."

2. "I want hot nuts for breakfast." No, she doesn't mean chestnuts roasting on an open fire (even though we've listened to Christmas music more than I care to admit). She's referring to hot Grape Nuts, my current choice for breakfast these days.

3. "No, it's not Frosty the Snowman, it's Rusty the Snowman." Ummmm, perhaps Rusty is Frosty's trailer park cousin made of out of dirty snow rather than clean snow? Who knows.....
