The licence plate country code for Cambodia is 'K'.

Dates back to when it was called Kampuchea. I got five points in an office quiz for deducing that.

Duodenal cancer is an incredibly rare form of cancer. One of my staff has just been diagnosed with it. He's 59, ex service, never smoked, barely drinks, fit as a fiddle.

I'm absolutely shattered.
