I find these sort of epidemics extremely worrying, there was dutch elm disease, then the bees dieing and now olive blight.
And mankind is virtually helpless.
Antibiotics no longer being affective is probably the most worrying.
I had my 2nd lesson on the Big Boy Bike today. I had the first by way of a free Intro Lesson on Saturday.
I've been saving up my pennies for this course for quite a while now, ideally to get the full 'A' category on my licence before the Provisional runs out in October. I've still got the full 'P' category for the Jubbly, but it'll be useful to have the full thing. Well, last week after having transferred my Bank Account from HSBC to the Halifax (after HSBC's announcement of... [Read More]
Somehow - I know not how - I recently became subscribed to some spam Text scam by Bequizzled.com. I suspect it was by way of not quite getting to grips with the ins & outs of my new Smart Phone & Apps yet. Anyway, I kept getting texy messages saying something like "Your Challenge Has Arrived", which I just ignored as spam. Then I got an eMail from TalkTalk to tell me that my bill had exceeded permitted levels. I thought it was something to do with leaving it on Data Stream... [Read More]
Cause for resignation don't you think? Would be bad enough if it was true but it was a complete and utter fabrication - something that both the fench ambassador and nicola sturgeon both insist was not dicussed yet despite that the bbc and the press reported it as if the story was true mand the leak embarrassing
I was, as you might expect, on board, and the train manager did indeed twice announce that the three hour delay was down to a suicide at Twyford, and she did indeed use the language ascribed to her in the article. She emphasized the additional degree of inconvenience this would cause people taking a Bank Holiday... [Read More]
No surprise there seems like the revisionists are at it a little bit I doubt anyone at the time would have condemned the troops any more than they would condemn the bomber pilots - the bombing campaign wasn't... [Read More]
Have any of you watched his interview with Diane Sawyer or the followup with the family?
And did you notice how quickly the jokes seemed to stop?
I can't think of that last time I had such a turn around in my opinion of someone. That's not to say I won't go back to thinking he is a baffoon soon, but if he can avoid the reality tv drama and keep this more of a documentary of his journey through transition, I think it could end up being helpful to everyone out there.
Dean Potter lived his life "pushing the envelope", a phrase coined by airplane test pilots in the mid 20th century.
Potter won acclaim free-climbing some of the most challenging places in the world.
He solo-climbed the El Capitan and Half Dome in a 24 hour period, and once climbed El Capitan in 3 hours, 24 minutes.
Earlier this month, he climbed Half Dome in 1 minute, 19 seconds, and made the return trip in less then a minute. No one has ever made the... [Read More]
We find a lot of interesting stuff on Netflix.
And we like british detective series.
The most recent find was "Death in Paradise"
A British detective finds himself assigned to a small Caribbean island. A typical little island that seems, to most civilized people, to be close to Paradise. But Detective Inspector Richard Poole loves London. And everything on this island is NOT London.
He hates it.
The stories are clever and the actors are fun to... [Read More]
I have a hard time seeing God as --- doing unto others as he would want done to himself --- in the clip above. I cannot see God wanting someone to do what he did to the women who owned those wombs to him. He is therefore certainly not walking his talk or... [Read More]
