On Friday the thirteenth…

Cybez reports just the kind of day you might expect, given the day that’s in it… It put me in mind of a (apocryphal?) story told to me a former colleague years ago. Her friend was completely sold on the predictive powers of Astrology. Having read the stars on one particular day, the friend decided things were going to be so bad she might as well stay in bed. All was well, until at about lunch time nature called, and she had to go to the toilet. Upon pulling the chain, the cistern fell off the wall and landed on her head… There’s a moral in there somewhere…
