Try these about Easter

1. Easter Day always occurs between March ?? and April ??
2. Simnel is a fruit cake with marzipan – what’s marzipan?
3. In which country did the Easter bunny originate?
4. The Easter Act [1928] in the UK – for what?
5. Another name for the Calvary location?
6. Who provided the documentary source for the Easter name?
7. The Aramaic פסחא word is what in English letters?

And that’s about it for Easter now. Normal service is resumed at 18:00 with sounds I classify as music – you might beg to differ. More Easter fun, but not under that name, this weekend coming.

Men and women not the same?

Well whodahunkit?

Women listened to this long, long video, men were doing Otherwise. I do agree with her that men are more visual as a rule and tend to tune out the female voice after some time:

The one I think I disagree with with her is that men seek conflict and women peace at any cost. Bollox – quite the opposite. Men are warriors ‘out there’, outside the home, the territory, but inside the perimeter fence, they like peace and quiet.

Women though, as Agatha Christie noted, positively thrive on new conflicts to go to pieces over and then the rebirth is not unlike the Phoenix from the ashes. Men prefer peace, almost at all costs but then they explode.

Now we’re not including violent men who fly off the handle here, nor nutter women such as those on the left. We’re talking your average bloke and gal.

She also mentioned that the female is into fine detail – she can remember a nuance from two weeks ago and expects the male to. The male, in my experience, cares nothing for the fine detail unless it relates to him or to a global issue.

She speaks of women preferring company and talk, men are never happier than at a car or plane rally, checking out mega-tools at a mega-hardware perhaps.

I’d say she gets many points right, not all. And that dress is easy on the eyes.
