MONDAY 13th SEPTEMBER 2010 07:55(BST)

THIS DAY IN WW2(13.9.40)
In North Africa... The Italian forces begin a cautious offensive from Libya into Egypt. They have five divisions in the attack with another eight in rear areas in Libya. Marshal Graziani is in command. The British Western Desert Force of two divisions is led by General O'Connor. On the first day the Italians occupy Sollum as the British pull back. During the months since the Italian declaration of war there have been no actions of any size, but the Italian numerical superiority has been morally undermined by much offensive patrolling by the British forces. These harassing tactics are now employed to good effect against the Italian offensive.

In Britain... The British bring heavy units of the Royal Navy nearer to the likely invasion area. The battleships Nelson and Rodney join the Hood at Rosyth and the Revenge is at Plymouth. There are, of course, strong cruiser and destroyer forces in relevant positions.

In East Africa... Italian troops from Ethiopia penetrate up to 20 miles into Kenya in a tentative advance.

TODAY'S THOUGHT
There are two types of people: transmitters and aerials. Aerials are much more common but have no power of their own.

TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With negative emotions well dissipated by surrender, it's time to respond similarly with obsessive behaviour.

TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
What in this moment feels pleasant?

TODAY'S ONELINER
Remember, a shark will only bite you if you're wet : D

TRIVIA
An animal is POISONOUS if it's toxic when eaten and VENOMOUS if its' bite injects toxic venom. Spiders are venomous but not poisonous, making them popular prey for birds.

TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I can do everything I need to do right now!
