Cuddle Rugby, a game my son invented for my daughter and him to play on the trampoline. I don't understand any of the rules, or the structure, but the raucaus laughter and happy playing sounds are music to my ears!

I thought Cuddle Rugby was a euphemism for something completely different. Like Horizontal Folk Dancing.

I've never heard of that, but I can assure you, this isn't the context on which this game is based on.

Buying an electronic product from Amazon and finding that the power brick covers the full 100-240V and 50-60Hz ranges, *and* even has a standard C13/kettle socket for easy plug-in-ability.

When I got my first camera I took a lot of care of the lens including using the lens cover whenever I wasn't shooting.

 

 

 

Now phone camera lens are exposed and often millimetres from a variety of surfaces (pocket lining, table top, carpet etc).  And there's nary a mark on photos.
