On the subject of brain ache, I have just finished the audiobook of Stephen Hawking 'The Universe In A Nutshell'.

Theoretical physics is enough to do your brain right in.

Picture this...

Rogue,

If you need to picture how the tides work sit down somewhere comfortable and think about a sturdy girl with gorgeous legs...hmm! now imagine she's wearing a mini skirt...better! now imagine she's carrying a hammer... she walks out to this circle and sets to, to chuck the hammer as far as she can. In doing this she has to spin round, clearly her skirt lifts!

Now the hammer is the moon, her lovely plump buttcheeks are mother earth and the hem line of her skirt is almost the surface of the sea.

It's not a perfect model for the barycentre but I have thought about it lot when I've been approaching the Billy Mill roundabout near Sunderland a couple of times.

Mr Luxton, Sunderland is my birth town, my maternal grandmother lived in Tynemouth it is not impossible that I approached and passed the location frequently during my teenage years!

We've just found out part of the family was related to the boat builders on Tagg's island, on the Thames, freshwater but still boats! My aforementioned Grandmother's dad was a sea captian, he and his ship were blown up by the IRA in the 30's the vessel survived but their Engineer didnt.

You can't, you'd be missed too much, so the big, bad woman that may take you to your grave? she would be modestly attired in a full length skirt with jeans on underneath for good measure?

"A man of contradictions, Pitt looked seaward, rueing the day he had sworn never to return to the oggin, unwise words spoken haste..."

I just cant see it happening, make it 99 things, and simply banish them in exile to an area close to Leicester, there they can be "rehabilitated" in a kind paternal cussler-esque way.

Born under a bad sign

What big bad Woman, what grave ?

Fair comment, I always thought of her as being big as in tall and lithe

I certainly wouldn't have a dilemna over a big leg Emma.

In terms of em being banished somewhere I think it's already started in Ramsgate
