Every Hotel Needs...

...giant plastic snails in the lobby!  Courtesy of the Golden Tulip Noailles in Paris.  You might think it's a little weird, I certainly did, but as a marketing strategy it was spot on (for me.)  As soon as I saw the pictures on their website I knew that was where I wanted to stay.

It also helps if you have an army of plastic gummi bears watching you through the window!

Armistice Day

"Mummy, I didn't know any soldiers who died in the war.  So how am I supposed to remember them?"

The girl has a point.

Trickle Treat

"Daddy, what's Trickle Treat?"
"Trickle Treat?  No, Poppet, it's Trick, Or, Treat."
"Oh.  How do you trick or treat?"
"Well, you knock on someones door and say 'Trick or treat!' and if they don't give you a treat, you play a trick on them."
"OK.  Shall we play trick or treat now?  I'll knock on the door and you say you won't give me a treat."
"Knock!  Knock!"
"Trick or treat!"
"Errr, trick please."
"Ask me my name."
"OK, what's your name?"
"Rubella Witchy!"
"Hello Rubella.  Rubella?  Why is your name Rubella?"
"I've tricked you, my name isn't really Rubella."
