Tom Fraser

                   

Tom Fraser PC (18 February 1911 – 21 November 1988) was a Labour Member of Parliament (MP) for the Hamilton constituency between 1943 and 1967.[1] He was Minister of Transport from October 16, 1964 until December 23, 1965. In December 1965 he introduced the 70 mph (113 km/h) speed limit on motorways as an emergency measure[2] following a series of multiple crashes on motorways mainly in fog.[3] In 1967 he resigned from Parliament to become chairman of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board.

He was made a Privy Counsellor in 1964.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
