Should only public-sector workers own houses?

The FSA yesterday made a proposal to make it harder to get a mortgage.While it's clear that some people have been allowed to borrow crazy amounts, I'm not sure that their new rules would help.First of all, for those of us who already have mortgages, what's the consequence if we can't remortgage? We'll be left on the Standard Variable Rate,...

A different perspective

John Redwood today is trying a new approach to explaining the scope of the financial crisis:Let us look at the financial plight of an imaginary Mr and Mrs Public Sector. They are on a good income of around £50,000 a year. They don’t feel it is nearly enough, as they are spending this year £67,500, financing the extra £17,500 from...

Stor baby



Baby scan
Originally uploaded by viralbus

Som jeg sikkert har nævnt tidligere, skal Phyllis efter planen føde den 9. januar.

Det betyder, at afstanden fra skambenet til toppen af livmoderen gerne skulle være 28-29 cm.

Men da de målte hende i dag til et rutinetjek, var afstanden 34 cm.

De sagde først, det sikkert bare var for meget væske, men de sendte hente til scanning for at tjekke.

Men nej, det er rent faktisk pigen derinde, der er kæmpestor: De vurderer hende til at veje mellem 2500 og 3000 gram på nuværende tidspunkt.

Anna vejede 3500 gram ved fødslen, så det lyder jo umiddelbart ret stort.

De regner med at tjekke Phyllis for sukkersyge i næste uge, men der er ingen tegn på noget i urinen, så hvis ikke det er årsagen, er det sikkert bare en meget stor baby.

Det kan selvfølgelig godt være, at hun vokser meget langsomt fra nu af og altså kommer til at veje ca. det samme som Anna ved fødslen, men det kan man ikke sige noget fornuftigt om på nuværende tidspunkt.

Jeg er i øvrigt meget imponeret over billederne fra scanningen. Phyllis er aldrig blevet scannet så sent i graviditeten, og det gør altså en stor forskel.

Se blot, hvor tydeligt man kan se hendes profil på billedet øverst til venstre.

Folding T-shirts

This is an impressive way to fold your T-shirt: Unless you're an engineer, in which case this is the way to go: If you like that idea, but don't want to build it yourself, it seems to be available here. However, it seems that if you're in the US Army, you don't fold, you roll:

Modern curries

I've already written about the wonderful Curry Secret cookbook, which shows you how to cook Indian restaurant food.Not only will it give you the recipes for dishes you've encountered in restaurants, but it will also teach you how to pre-cook the sauce and the meat, so that you can cook two curries in half an hour after work.So when the...
Dyrø, Skid, Bredvig og andre skotske stednavne
De norske vikinger har haft en meget stor indflydelse i det vestlige Skotland.Det kan bl.a. ses på, at mange stednavne går tilbage til oldnordisk.Tag fx den lille skotske ø Jura.Dens navn kommer fra oldnordisk Dýr-ey "Dyreø" (med den østnordiske sideform...
TECkit
After the Mac arrived last week, one of the first programs I installed was TeXShop.That caused me to play around with XeTeX, which – although it's also available for Linux – I had never really got around to playing around...
