So, Tibet; I haven’t yet made a statement on what I think about the events unfolding around the Olympic Games in China this year and the protests as a result of the human rights violations in Tibet. It’s tricky to say why really without offending somebody but here goes anyway. In the last couple of… Read More »Human Rights and Political Wrongs
Much like Paul and Shane, I have a hard time resisting these little “what xyz are you” tests. Today’s offering is “What Superhero are you?”. I seem to lean towards a majority Spiderman/Flash, no doubt because I failed to say that I hate redheads which invariably means that I am somehow enthralled by Mary Jane… Read More »I’m a mixture of superheros
I had wondered for the last few days where my daily dosage of Dilbert in my Google Reader had gone to. Today I see an update on the old feed to alert me to a new feed URL (http://feeds.feedburner.com/DilbertDailyStrip). So I’m back in Dilbert land again.

So, it’s at a time like this when I hear about a new development where technology is applied to a useful purpose that will… Read More »Navigating through history
Pythagoras Originally uploaded by jbwan Our new rabbit arrived home yesterday to his newly constructed hutch which I have made 1000% cat proof – I even find it difficult to get into it myself to give him his food and water. His name is Pythagoras but his friends call him Pi for short. 🙂 He’s… Read More »Meet Pythagoras
Apparently a teenager in the US has been arrested under the suspicion of making terror threats and making up a “hit list” of people. Shockingly enough the name of Chuck “He counted to infinity twice” Norris, made it onto that list. A bit of advice kid, don’t mess with anyone who can slam a revolving… Read More »High School Kid Targets Chuck
For ages now, I and others have been awaiting the voice of Danny O’Hare to appear in the national media, attacking the case for a university in the South East. It’s pretty sad really that somebody could be so predictable as to have people watching the papers and waiting for him but there you go.… Read More »Someone dusted off Danny
I awoke this morning to see the entire of my garden covered in a blanket of snow – yes it is April 7th.
