It has been reported that a family heading for a holiday in the south of France drove 93 miles before finding out they had left their three-year-old daughter behind at a motorway picnic area.

And even then, they only realised because of an alert broadcast on the radio.

On their LinkedIn profiles, it’s suddenly going to say ‘John has been endorsed for espionage, surveillance and killing baddies by The KGB.’

I can’t help thinking that there are a lot of parents listening who would like to adopt that child.

How nice would it be to have a three-year-old child who is so quiet on long car journeys that you don’t even realise they’re not actually in the car with you?

If I had a kid like that I’d never forget them, they’re like gold dust.

It’s being claimed that enemy spies are attempting to recruit civil servants in a bid to steal Britain’s secrets by ‘befriending’ them on LinkedIn. I can’t help thinking it’ll be easy to spot those who have been recruited. On their LinkedIn profiles, it’s suddenly going to say ‘John has been endorsed for espionage, surveillance and killing baddies by The KGB.’

A British grown pepper called The Komodo Dragon that is 400 times hotter than a jalapeno is set to hit our supermarket shelves later in the year.

One thing I’m wondering though, will we be able to find it on the ‘spices’ aisle? Or is it going to be in the ‘entertainment’ section, with all the DVDs and stuff?

Because, knowing people like I do, more are going to be using it for rotten pranks on their mates than are ever going to be using it in cooking.

According to a new survey, three-quarters of Britons aged 18-25 take their mobile phone to the poolside or beach on holiday, compared to more than a quarter who plan to read a book.

Though, I’ve found that it only takes the reading of one book at the poolside or beach to stop you taking your phone with you ever again. It’s a book listing the standard mobile phone roaming charges when you’re on holiday.
