Wanna see my tool?

This is the first post I've made using ::w.bloggar::. Its a third party offline blog editing tool that can post to blogger and blogspot blogs (and many other types of blog too). I don't know if I'm overly keen on...

Mad Cow's Money.

The EU (a collection of European countries) has a "Common Agriculture Policy" which was designed to secure the ability to produce food in Europe by a system of subsidies paid direct to farmers. Unfortunately this policy is now hugely out...

Search me!

For some unfathomable reason, this site seems to rank quite highly with some search engines. Consequently I've only got to write about something before I get floods (relatively speaking) of people thinking that this site contains the answer to their...

Someone else's torture.

I've had chance to catch up with Jack a little further. Unlike Sharon, Jacks wife was able to go through a natural childbirth and did it just on "gas & air". So I was hoping to hear his tail of...

Such rewarding torture.

Sometimes being a mobile DJ is a terrible form of mental torture so painful I can't understand why I put myself through it. Tonight's booking was a prime example. I arrived at 6.30pm to set up and be ready to...

My days would be empty without it.

During my wanders around cyberspace I came across the following landmarks. Each of them makes a nice place to stop off and admire the virtual scenery.Attrition.org - An excellent gallery of over 3500 pictures, humorous and otherwise, collected from email...

Memories.

Wil Wheaton has an excellent little piece of writing today. The smell of a perfume on a complete stranger brought back recollections of early romantic fumblings. It got me thinking; what happened to my memories of times like that? I...

Monday Mission 2.38

Courtesy of PromoGuy.net. 1. When I was young, my Mom would always drink a cold Dr. Pepper in the morning. Me, I can go either way. I like a Cold Frappucchino in the Summer months and switch to warm Mocha...

All shook up!

The UK experienced its strongest earthquake for over 10 years last night. At around about 1am Sharon and I were woken by a strong shaking. I thought a plane had flown very low or an extremely big truck had driven...

You're not missing anything.

I've been a little remiss on the journal type entries of late. This really is because I've had very little to talk about. Depression still mutes my reactions to virtually every experience. I find it hard to get excited about...

Game on!

OK. Call me slow, but I've just got into Unreal Tournament. I've got the Game of the Year version after playing it at a friend's house the other day. I'm gonna take a few days playing against the computer opponents...

How on earth do I end up getting a hit from the search married brits looking for sex?...

"Not-so-Hot"mail

I use Hotmail as 2 of my active email accounts and the amount of Spam it receives annoys me. However, I can live with it as ot only takes 30 seconds to delete. However some of it is Porn spam....

Shock Formula 1 News!

You may be aware that I'm a big fan of F1 so I was suprised to receive the following press announcement. ************Press Release*********** The Ferrari F1 Team fired their entire pit crew. The announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage...

A whale of a time.

There's something magical about whale song. It seems this site used to have live audio feeds from a microphone off the coast of Maui. Unfortunately there is no longer a live feed but there is a 20 minute Real Audio...

Hack you way into more info about Tron 2.0

Tron used to be one of my favourite films and, despite the obvious limitations on special effects available when the film was made, I think it stands the test of time. This website seems to have some relevance to Tron...

Just Links.

Just Links. A collection of links I've been holding onto for a couple of days. Createbands.com Create your own band (duh!). This is the kind of thing Flash was made for. Groove Blender 2. Whilst you're making your own music,...

Monday Mission 2.37

Courtesy of PromoGuy. 1. Do you have a favorite piece of poetry or prose written by someone else? Care to share it? I do, unfortunately I can't find it. Someone gave it to me after my first wife died. I...

Bleurg!

I don't feel too well today. Sickness, diarrohea and a complete lack of energy. I've slept for about 16 hours and I'm still tired. Hopefully I'll be back on form tomorrow....

Stoned.

Yesterday morning, at about 5am, Sharon was awoken with an excruciating pain in her midriff. The pain she said was the worst she has ever experienced, worse than anything to do with the caesarean. It was located directly under her...

Humour.

When I was about 15 I heard what I considered, at the time, to be the funniest joke ever. Q: How do you make a dog drink? A: Put it in the liquidiser! Childish I know (and a little sick)...

Wow!

I've just watched Lord of the Rings on DVD and all I've got to say is WOW!. One of the very very few films I have seen that is truly deserving of the hype it received. A benchmark for the...

Judgments.

Scene: Upstairs seating area at a largish McDonalds just after the lunchtime rush. I'm eating my dinner, on my own, with nothing to read so I'm watching the other diners. Subject 1: A young woman in her late teens who...

Hush little baby...

It's 5am and Connor has been awake for the last 2 hours. I've finally got bored of lieing in bed and jumping up every 5 minutes to try to convince him to rest. Well, it'll give me chance to catch...

Monday Mission 2.36

Via PromoGuy dot net. I know its late but I've had other things on my mind lately. 1. Where were you and what was happening in your life the moment when you first became aware of what was happening at...

No! I don't want a bigger weapon!

When I created this weblog, I also created an email address exclusively for the correspondence it may (or may not) have generated. Since then I've put the email address on this page, but it should be protected by a little...

Blogger Bother

Last night Blogger refused to post any of my entries (and I'd had quite a productive day). So they're listed below in rapid succession but they are in fact a whole days worth....

Animal Attraction.

Is it a toy? Is it an experiment in viral marketing? Who cares? Creaturecology.com lets you create your own animal to be released into a virtual ecosphere. But its survival is in part determined by how many people you can...

Cultured.

Out of shape.

This Career Fitness Test is supposed to ”help you assess how good you are at managing your career in a changing world.”. It tells me ”You’re obviously good in certain areas. Think carefully about how you can be more proactive,...

What do I want?

What do I want? As time ticks by and I seem to get no closer to finding a job in my current career (VAT consultant / manager) I have to consider the possibility that I need to pursue a different...
