Last night, while I was visiting Clare in Gloucester Hospital, Clare’s mother Cilla restocked my fridge and a decanted bottle of Chateau La Fleur Petrus 2003 was left in my office to accompany my steak..

The wine did not come from the same source as the steak but god it was good…and hugely appreciated..

When a lady is pregnant, all her friends touch the stomach and say, "Congrats."

But, none of them comes up to the man - touch his penis and say, "Good job."

Moral of the story -- Hard work is rarely appreciated.
