National Children's Day

The past year has been challenging for kids, so let’s make them feel special on National Children’s Day (NCD) on Sunday 16 May.

In this three-minute read, we look at a study that found some landlords were putting themselves and their investment at risk by cutting corners on checks and maintenance.

OK, so this is how it goes.  Two Alaskan fishermen go out onto a frozen lake with their brand new 4X4 utility vehicle.  In order to reach the water below and be able to ‘fish’, they first need to break the ice, and create an opening in the surface of the lake.  In order to do this, due to the thickness of the ice, their normal practice is to create an explosion.  Therefore, to bring about this explosion they light a stick of dynamite and throw it as far as they can.  At this point I should mention that one of fishermen has brought along his dog. Hmmm! You may now be two steps ahead of me, but for those of you who are not, I will continue with the account!
