Overall I really had a good day yesterday working away until my back started to ache so sat down. There’s still loads to do as always but this morning I feel really exhausted… and this is despite getting back to bed for an hour and a half!! Obviously I’ve no idea why I feel so … More Strange – tired again!
One of the reasons I’ve not been very active in here for the last couple of days is that apart from Xmas coming and having the kids home, I’ve been getting on with creating a new forum site aimed at supporting ‘carers’, i.e. those largely unsung heroes who spend their lives caring for a member … More Strictly Magic – yet another site!
The score says it all Wales 21 Australia 18 and regardless how it got to be that way… in the books the result stands! 🙂 I suppose things might have been a little different if they Wallabies hadn’t lost their captain Stirling Mortlock in the first few minutes, but nonetheless a stirring victory. Well done … More Well done Wales!
Was looking today at the new Chrome Browser by Google and I have to admit to being *really* impressed!! The screen ‘real estate’ is being used to far greater advantage now I’ve lost those controls I only ever used once in a blue moon, and those additional search boxes that cluttered the place. This browser … More Still here… somewhere.
Perhaps not so much “missing in action”, as “missing because of in-action”. What am I talking about?

You might remember I lost 40+ kilos just before Xmas, I did … More Missing in action?
So Carole Thatcher has written a book explaining her mother has slowly been developing dementia and has been forgetting the things she did whilst in power as PM of the UK. While that’s sad for her, it’s far worse for those us who remember more clearly what she did and the effect it had on … More Thatcher's Britain revisited.
The baby humpback whale found stranded and motherless in Sydney Harbour, and named Colin… later Colette, was finally ‘euthanased’ in Sydney Harbour yesterday. There’ve been all sorts of stories about her and the way she was/wasn’t aided by government agencies etc and there is now talk of a *summit* of experts to try to establish … More A whale of a time.
You have to hand it to Christina Applegate, she’s really struck a chord with people suffering from breast cancer in that she has been quite open about the treatment she opted for in her battle with the disease. For someone so high in public visibility to make it clear she’d decided a bi-lateral mastectomy was … More Christina Applegate strikes a chord.
The UK Cycling team has excelled this year with them winning most of the gold medals at the Beijing Olympics. Got to be fair… this really is an outstanding result. 🙂 Breaking world records along the way just adds icing to the cake.
No doubt *all* of us will be glued to our tv’s later on as the most famous discipline of the entire Olympic schedule begins in earnest. Yes… Synchronised Swimming will be using the pool vacated by the real swimmers. Oops… did I say ‘real’… of course I meant ‘other’ swimmers. Yet I still ask myself … More Drowning… with a rictus grin!
