The Lottery of Life

Ah, the difference between Scotland and England; the Scots think they have won the lottery of life because pennies from heaven rain down on them whereas the English know they have, because as Rhodes said in some form or other, simply because they are English.

Reid, a public health nurse, said: "We tend to pick places where people congregate, such as supermarkets. We just walk up and speak to people.

If you are carrying core body fat around your middle, that's raising your cholesterol."
