Free Lunch

I watched a drama a couple of days ago that featured a young woman on her lunch break from her burger-chain job, talking to her boyfriend.

Him: Where are you?

Her: Having my free lunch at Betty’s Burger Bar, which just goes to show that there is no such thing.

And Counting…

Approximately one kajillion people have pointed this story out to me, so I thought I’d pass it on:

White middle-aged Americans are less healthy than their English counterparts, research suggests.

Americans aged 55 to 64 are up to twice as likely to suffer from diabetes, lung cancer and high blood pressure as English people of the same age.

The healthiest Americans had similar disease rates to the least healthy English, the Journal of the American Medical Association study found.

Have I mentioned that we leave for the UK in July?
