As daft, I sometimes demo shihonage whilst humming the Magic Roundabout theme music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3DcChXNyYQ) - it seems to me to represent the turning on an axis making everthing go round you, quite well

Most of you won't know of the Magic Roundabout, it was a classic of 1970's UK TV, an obscure French kids TV programme dubbed into English, 5.55 pm every evening just before the News, loved by adults, it had a cult like status.

Don't even get me started on the Devon pixies and how helpful they can be

Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
