Meanwhile,

A telephone helpline of "inspiring" sounds from the mountains and shorelines of the tranquil Lake District in northwest England has been set up to help those feeling depressed as the number of daylight hours dwindles.

It includes a reading of William Wordsworth's poem "Daffodils", the sound of Lake Windermere lapping against a jetty, the crisp crunch of leaves on a country walk, and Cumberland sausage sizzling in a pan.

Oh my God! crisp crunch of leaves, Lake Windermere lapping and the sizzling sound of the electric cord when I drop it carefully into my bathwater!!!

Hilarious. That cumberland sausage sounds pretty good though. I think that would cheer me up.

Meanwhile, I love the idea of 500 cuckoo clocks going off at once. Five HUNDRED. All day every day on the hour every hour. I'd last about two days before drawing that bathwater.
