Naah - if you read the story they've got 4 kids in a slightly cramped house & they're gonna buy a bigger one. Kids are excited to have their own rooms.

the last of his species has a date.
"Romeo is really calm and relaxed and doesn't move a whole lot," she told BBC News. "He's healthy and likes to eat, but he is kind of shy and slow."
Juliet, however, has a very different personality. "She's really energetic, she swims a lot and she eats a lot and sometimes she tries to escape."

Anybody else see where this may be leading . . . :btime:

Kenyan Teacher Who Gives Away 80% Of His Income Wins $1m Prize

Peter Tabichi, 36, a maths and physics teacher at Keriko secondary school in Pwani Village, in a remote part of Kenya’s Rift Valley, has won the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize 2019.

Tabichi gives away 80% of his income to help the poorest students at the poorly-equipped and overcrowded school who could not otherwise not afford uniforms and books.

More than 90% of his pupils are from poor families and almost a third are orphans or have only one parent. Drug abuse, teenage pregnancies, dropping out early from school, young marriages and suicide are common. Students have to walk 7km along roads that can become impassable in the rainy season to reach the school and the area can be affected by drought and famine.

Despite only having one computer, a poor internet connection and a student-teacher ratio of 58:1, Tabichi started a “talent nurturing club” and expanded the school’s science club, helping pupils design research projects of such quality that many now qualify for national competitions.

His students have taken part in international science competitions and won an award from the Royal Society of Chemistry after harnessing local plant life to generate electricity.

Tabichi and four colleagues also give struggling pupils one-to-one tuition in maths and science, visiting students’ homes and meeting their families to identify the challenges they face.

Enrolment at the school has doubled to 400 over three years and girls’ achievement in particular has been boosted.

Accepting the prize, Tabichi said: “I am only here because of what my students have achieved. This prize gives them a chance. It tells the world that they can do anything.”

The ONLY sex he's ever had or he's ever going to get.
Once saw Kermit being interviewed - possibly by Parky - when he was asked rather directly about his romantic intentions towards Miss Piggy.

He glanced downwards, indicating his crotch area, saying 'You're looking at the entire Kermit here!' to loud laughter.

From the pouch to the couch: Meet the pet kangaroo that sleeps on the sofa and refuses to go outside at night before giving his owner a kiss

rufus.jpg

An eastern grey kangaroo named Rufus spends his evenings lounging inside a couple's home - and won't go outside until he's kissed the owner goodnight.

Footage shared by ViralHog shows the 40kg roo being picked up from the couch and carried back outside for the night in Boston, South Australia.

'Rufus chooses to come into the house every night to have a sleep on his favourite spot on the couch!' the caption read.

'He comes up to the window near the back door and looks inside waiting for us to open the door, then inside he hops!'

Rufus then finds his spot on the big couch and remains there as long as he can.
