I run a Company, Wordcraft, that coined the name "Dongle" as applied to the little licence-locking thingy that you stick in the back of computers to stop people ripping the software. We first made them for a word processor package on the Commodore PET.

If only we had trade marked it :(

Spleen the Cat
If you live in (or have access to) a cul-de-sac; there are more than one of you; and you all have bicycles then this is an excellent way to spend the afternoon.
Draw a line across the tarmac to form a rectangle on the end of the road. Everyone rides round in a circle in the same direction within the rectangle. Someone shouts "Spleen the Cat" and then you must try and knock everyone else off their bikes. You are not allowed on the pavement or over the line you drew and you are NOT allowed to touch anyone else (that would be too easy).

"I see IKEA"
The first in our family to shout this, on seeing said store, is entitled to claim an ice-cream from the others present.

You can claim two ice-creams if you see a foreign one (for us, one not in the UK).

For those who want to start, a great two-pointer is the IKEA store visible whilst landing at Newark Airport, NJ - its even better because the phone call to tell your loved one will inevitably be in the middle of the night UK time.

» Pet Names

A black, norwegian, dwarf, lop-eared rabbit was so named after that stalwart of Blue Peter, Precious Mackenzie, who was a Weight Lifter from Mauritius. Rabbit was so named because, he too, was small and black.
