Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

The small sign on the wall on the far right says 'ARTMONGERS' and the cafe attached is an artsy sort of place called 'The Toad's Mouth Too' ..... keep meaning to ask why.....

It's a weeny tiny car. Bought it Italy and drove it home :) 2200 km's in 6 days!

YH would fit perfectly next to me. It even has a backseat, ok but small.

Found out why the cafe is called Toad's Mouth Too .... it is after a short story by Isabel Allende called Toad's Mouth (from the book, The Stories of Eva Luna)......will have to read it now....
