The Case of the Wriggly Planet

Have you read about the seismic waves that are shaking the earth? The media are calling them ‘mysterious’. I’d like you to open your mind - wide open. Imagine the mysterious waves are being caused by a tectonic plate shaking off some magma, before it is placed in the dishwasher - Got it? Now, I’d... Sign in to see full entry.

At last! After 2 days of non-stop snow and oh so exciting news about factories closing and walls being built and strangers shooting strangers, some fun. I’d just finished reading about a new mother who’d had police forces looking for her and her child because they’d found forceps, blood and placenta... Sign in to see full entry.

Is it just me?

First we had a girlfriend deep frying her dismembered boyfriend, and probably publishing the recipe in order to make money from her ex. Now we have a Honolulu - are there the right amount of ‘U’s in that - U should know - burger chain serving rats. No! No!, I don’t mean their customers are rats, I... Sign in to see full entry.

I’m Close to Giving In.

All I’m doing is scrolling thru the headlines before turning in for the night. It was Black Friday and I had no intention of doing anything during it, and I didn’t. I put on a Blues CD and settled back with a good book, well, not really a book, more of a tablet, but you’re all internet users, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Count me Out for Thanksgiving

That’s it. Enough is enough. I’ve always prided myself on being a vegan. Well, at least a once removed vegan, working on the principle that steak, milk and cheese come from cows and there is nothing more quintessentially tranquill than a herd of contented cows munching in a grassy pasture. But now,... Sign in to see full entry.

How to Kill a Squirrel without killing a squirrel

And there are many, many times that I’d love to kill our local squirrel thieves. Some scientist or other has discovered that squirrels don’t just rely on their sense of smell to re-discover their buried nuts. Why does writing that sentence make my buttocks clench? Anyway, the scientists found out... Sign in to see full entry.

A 20 mile wide Meteor crater in Greenland?

This is the first time a crater of this size has been found under a continental ice shelf. According to the scientists,it’s only a puppy of a crater, being anywhere from 3 million years old to 12,000 years old -- just a smidgin before my time. The crater was apparently caused by a half mile wide... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Mankind Aggressive or Defensive?? (1)

Let me tell you a story. When I was a pre-teen at school, we used to have a weekly period about religion. During that hour all we ever seemed to get were exhortations never, ever, to speak to, look at, or have contact of any kind with the people from another religion. Those people were evil and were...

Weird Mind

“I wish you’d stop saying that.” I was becoming ever so slightly annoyed. We were driving along in our own neighborhood, towards town. “You mean that you have a weird mind?” my other half pretended not to understand. II was saved from answering and snarling by a parka and a pair of trousers. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Never Assume

Did I ever tell you about my visit to the old farts clinic? No? Do you care? No? Tough! At one point the clinician in charge asked us all what our dominant hand was. I almost answered that my wife had the dominant hand, but as the majority of attendees were women I decided to shut up. “Try using... Sign in to see full entry.
