Lego, Tesco, rain

It is a fact, I read, that if all the Lego in the world, were divided equally, we would get 30 pieces each.

Another "fact": In 2005 Tesco controlled 31 per cent of Britain's grocery trade and 13 per cent of retail sales. The figures must surely have changed by now, and to day we learn that another adjustment must be due. The Morrisons formerly Safeway store opposite Tunbridge Wells station, which ceases to trade to day, is to be revived by Tesco, which will open there at the beginning of December.

Rain is a beautiful thing.
"O bruit doux de la pluie
Par terre et sur les toits!
Pour un coeur qui s'enuie,
O le chant de la pluie!

Where did you find this information from?

As of 6- 7 January 2007, the store is not a Tesco!

Are you sure?

This was a strong rumour. One of the drivers from the taxi rank opposite Morrisons seemed to be convinced. I am afraid I swallowed it as a fact. If only it had been true! Someof us without cars have a longish walk now with the groceries. I had forgotten that I had mentioned this.
