    1. The Gop Is the hill behind which our village is sheltered.
      On top of the hill is a neolithic burial mound

  53. My two year old daughter marched up to my cat, jammed her pointed finger directly against his anus and announced "Hole." Aside from jumping straight up in the air, he made no further remark.
