By way of contrast, the rather sweet and innocent young girl at the perfume counter is asking...
"Would it be all right to dilute it with water to begin with?"
This cartoon below remains our favourite! Seriously though, you can sleep in our bookshop if you wish and the bedrooms are full of books, so, if you are a honeymoon couple, cuddling up could become just one of several options!

The Russian one above: We are not really sure what the legend says...but the spirit and idea is just perfect..!

This cartoon by Stephen Collins is so wonderfully and subtly funny. Easter Island is one of the most remote (and now barren) islands in the world. The Easter Island civilisation flourished from about 1000 AD, creating giant stones heads called "Moai".
Well...they gaze out to sea....it is thought to ward off unwanted invaders.
However, the civilization recently became extinct.
And the huge stone head? Nigel Farage..!
