That's when it doesn't matter which way round your partner is...
Today, in short form, the day is the same as the year so if you happen to be in Japan, where they put the year first and the day last, it doesn't matter for once compared with the normal way of stating it.
At least they keep things in a logical order, unlike those muddle headed Yanks who put the month before the day and then throw the year in out of order.

Anyone flown the much maligned Boeing 787 yet? I am in Osaka at the moment having arrived earlier from Amsterdam on one. Very competitive airfare from KLM but I think I can see why now. All I am saying is that if Ryanair get the rights to some long haul routes and buy some 787s we have the makings of a perfect storm...

It feels like it was just yesterday when an available season ticket at St. James' Park was like gold dust, now they are giving them away. With West Ham looking like a candidate to fall into the relegation zone it does make me wonder whether suspect owners have a bearing on supporters staying away.
 I thought there were 6,000 empty seats at West Ham last night but it has reduced capacity for football so it was almost full. Still, they are not doing well on the pitch - so i have sort of have made my point...after a fashion...I suppose...

Was there just over four years ago and thought 'bit much' when they handed out the face masks before we landed. Within ten minutes the sulphur was getting to me and I was using it. But nothing like the experience the two tours earlier today went through. Sad for the persons or people, and their friends and family, who lost their life through a desire to see one of the World's more extraordinary geological features and a sobering reminder of the risks many scientists go through to extend human knowledge:
