From Twitter, those stars and colours you see when you close or rub your eyes are called phosphenes. I can see them on the edge of my left eye all the time. I need to ask doctor Google about this. grin

I didn't know that. I used to have lots of fireworks going off in my eyes. Apparently the jelly in my eyes collapsed and fell to the bottom. Today I learned that the PLJ juice we used to have in the house in the 70s stands for Pure Lemon Juice.

Today I learned my daughter is going to be forty eight! Yes I know I knew that in theory but that makes me really old. 😱

Poor Midgey. My eldest is 51 (!!!!!) this year and I dovwish you hadn't made me think about it.

I learnt that extended families are nearly as good as Stenders but I can't stop opt out.

Same here midgey. The years since my youngest left home to venture forth have just flown by. He will be 50 in exactly two weeks. Tonight I will decided how to celebrate it with him. I haven't heard from him for two months.

Today I learned that having been offered a stay at a very expensive luxury hotel I really don’t feel comfortable about it and want to say No Thank You.

All toads are frogs but not all frogs are toads.

And you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find a prince.

Then he might turn out to be a toad.

Today I learned that snooker might not be quite as boring as I thought but my time limit for watching it is half an hour.

Today I learned that DS1 is going back into the office tomorrow so we are to have DGdog as we did pre-pandemic. We will be delighted to have her.

Today i learned that money does not grow on trees.
If thats the case why do banks have branches.
I wonder if thats where the saying comes from actually.
