What he said
Posted by at 7.53pm | Uncategorised | No responses

I’ve seen quite a few blogs linking to this blog post, reacting to President Bush’s re-election:-

Four more years of scientific decisions being made by people who believe in a ghost in the clouds

Four more years of making enemies faster than we can kill them.

Four more years of fear and darkness and racism and hatred and stupidity and guns and bad country music.

…you mean there’s good country music?

Rail Crash
Posted by at 6.53pm | Uncategorised | No responses

Another selfish motorist, another fatal crash, another seven families devastated.

Not much I can say really, except to praise Alistair Darling for not resorting to the irrational knee-jerk reaction that is typical of an MP and actually coming out with some sensible quotes:-

It is neither practical nor necessary to replace all of Britain’s level crossings following the weekend’s fatal crash, Alistair Darling has said.

Candle in the Window

Gah, that was horrible. Three hours without electricity. 180 miserable minutes with no heat or light, trying to read a newspaper by candlelight and making cups of coffee by boiling water on the gas cooker.

And of course, now I have to go round the house resetting every digital clock (except my new video, which gets the time automatically from Ceefax</smug>)

I’m going to say it.

God, it’s so difficult to say.

But… here goes.

The Daily Mail is right (the bit about the nanny state, starting about halfway down).

There. I said it.

Deck the Halls etc.
Posted by at 4.01pm | Uncategorised | No responses

One evening’s web browsing last week, followed by a quick jaunt into town this morning, then a quick detour to Penny Lane to visit Hatton’s this afternoon, and my Christmas shopping is all done!

I feel very smug and superior — even more so than usual. :-)
