There are 3 Friday 13ths in 2012 – and more interesting facts – QI take note!

Jut read a really interesting article about Friday 13th. T

There is at least 1 every year and at most 3.

Why it might turn out to be unlucky?

Interesting trivia, just read it:


Ants in my pants……

well, almost.  We are under siege.

In the last couple of days we have suffered an ant invasion in the Tara Plumbing strong hold. 

Our solid front door held up against their battering ram; our window locks were not picked by the nimble little ant fingers; and we did not fall for their Trojan horse trick.  Nevertheless, whilst my back was turned for a minute they seem to have tunnelled their way. 

I have retaliated with all the weapons at my disposal but it is not clear who is winning, I am bigger, stronger and with much greater fire power.  I  am not for killing mammals to eat them, but ant attack in my home is another matter…

Why is this suddenly happening, does anyone know?  Is it happening to others?  Mr Tara Plumbing thinks it may be to do with mating behaviour.  How our love life should affect the local ant population, however, I’m really not sure.
