Dubai Port is the world's 13th biggest container port.

1 point for getting the top twelve and remember points win prizes.

And 17% of all crane-flies (Daddy Long Legs) are currently operating my bloody house!

Lol Sarnia! Since the boys started feeding them to the pet spider (no its not in the house, and its actually not a pet at all) the crane flies have stopped poping in so much. Its probably really just the weather change but hey young minds like to dream.

Nice one, Sarnia. My two youngest are terrified of the buggers. (The flies, that is) I suppose it must be the long hot summer we've had that has caused there to be loads of them this year. (Again, the flies!)

Sarnia said...

Pet spider, Lucy? Shudder.

There have been a load more this year (crane-flies) LPJ. Still, they're better than mosquitoes I suppose...
