Why do hens lay eggs and we don't?
Why does water go down the plughole that way?
Where does dust come from? (I'd like to know that too!)
These and many other questions have we been asked.
What have you been asked?

Walking into town one day, we passed a pub. My DS, aged about 9 or 10, asked me, "Were you alive when King Edward VII was?" (I think it VII).
Older lady, who'd been behind her hedge, cutting it, appeared with a most amused look on her face & just fell about laughing. I think that made her week!

Visiting my mother's, I heard the kids whispering in the kitchen. I went to see what they were up to, and found them discussing her herb rack.
"Are they for grandma's spells?" Daddy was such a bad influence lol.
