Use it or lose it

When I was on my usual lunch-time walk today, I heard a couple of women talking in Czech. It's always good to hear a language you recognise.

What it did bring home to me, though, is how much of it I have forgotten. I didn't know much to start with, and it has nearly all gone now. It just goes to show how quickly you forget things if you do not make use of them.

Smoking in public places

The Scottish Parliament is looking at banning smoking in public places. Check out a BBC article here. So, by next spring, it may be law. Not a bad thing in my view.

I'm sure it won't stop those who still smoke on buses, and those who think it is their god given right to smoke wherever and whenever they please. I don't think that even lung cancer will stop them.
