It's hard to measure happiness? I know, it's my job to do just that. Very interesting to try though. (My job's to analyse the answers to customer satisfaction surveys for a large utility company. It may surprise you to know that some people *are* happy.)

To all you horrified people, who really cares if people eat breakfast at their desks, as long as they get their work done. Increasingly bosses want 200% (what's all that about anyway, it's impossible) from their employees, using the recession as an excuse for exploitation. It's ok to work at the weekend, unpaid but it's not ok to be 5mins late in the office or eat your breakfast. Get real, treat your employees with respect and you will get a lot more out of them.

Crunch, slurp... is it bad manners to eat your breakfast in the office? Only if it's cereal. That's the main "crunch crunch, slurp slurp" culprit. I had a fry-up yesterday morning. No crunch, no slurp.

Your article about broadband talks about a north/south divide in the UK and then seems to use London as the measure of what defines "South". Surely if you are talking about the UK, a north/south divide would be a line drawn somewhere north of Manchester?

Re: Beauty and the bricks. I love these photos, which go to show that if one looks for it, one can find beauty in the most unlikeliest of places!

David (Monday's letters), they look elliptical to me. But then I never did get the hand of perspective.
