Today's Quote
(unknown)

"Pain, emotional or physical, has a very clear message... We
should do more of something or less of something else. Once we get the pain's message, and follow its advice, the pain goes away."

Today's Amazing Facts

April Fools' Day

In France, on April the 1st, people stick paper fish on people's backs and laugh at them.

In the UK people try to make people believe very silly things.

Today's Fun

A serious news programme on the BBC once played a very funny April Fool's Day joke on listeners.

They announced that thanks to good weather, farmers in Switzerland were enjoying a great harvest from their spaghetti trees.

Many people phoned the programme to know how to grow their own spaghetti tree!
