I've built a small, simple site using Bootstrap. It works fine on the desktop, but on the iPhone the menu will only open on the first page. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? http://www.doingsmsc.org.uk
Pupils' spiritual development is shown by their: ability to be reflective about their own beliefs, religious or otherwise, that inform their perspective on life and their interest in and respect for different people's faiths, feelings and values; sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning ...

I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have last Sunday's edition of The Sun?

Have you seen any neat UK election decision-making tools? I'm aware of verto, voteforpolicies and votematch; are there more? #ge2015

I don't dare try it myself, but I wonder how many people would sign a petition telling the BBC NOT to reinstate Jeremy Clarkson?

Five-a-day? Not from Tesco. The Daily Mail reports that Tesco asked proof of age for melon because it could have fermented. The article says it was 'meant as a joke' and nothing more; but, on BBC Radio 4's Today programme just now, John Humphrys said that Tesco is apparently considering extending this 'policy' to ALL fruit. What a mystery! I'm on tenterhooks.
Kate Lancaster, 37, from Plymouth, said she 'fell about laughing' after getting a letter from Tesco explaining that all fruit could soon be age restricted because it can be fermented into alcohol.

Online communications for a citizenship education charity.
Introduction
I hate writing profiles, I never know what to say.

I've managed the website of a UK charity since we launched it (the site, that is) in 1997 (or 1998? I can't remember). I read the html 3 and 4 specs in their entirety(!) and during the dark days of the Browser Wars I sweated blood trying to get CSS to work at all, let alone across different browsers. I'm loving the giant steps that are still being made in standards development.
Bragging rights
Cherie Blair once told her aide and me to stop bickering about how to fix her PowerPoint presentation. She'd got an image upside down; a sheep, I think. She fixed it herself.
