    Grill of small elec. heater on low - 224deg

    I bet this one was a lot higher up on this list though, like 2nd or 3rd place.

    good news ..... for toto, at least

    angela merkel is giving up the party leadership - whether or not she'll remain as chancellor, and for how long, remains to be seen

    probably doesn't want to be the premier that presides over the breakup of the european union when more bricks start to crumble away
