The disconcerting calm of holidays…

Well I suppose the heading makes it sound like a bad thing… it’s not of course, but it’s different. Am on holidays for the next two weeks. Some time at home, and some (not sure how much), time in the country visiting family. And it’s odd to suddenly be out of the daily work routine, ...

Movie review – Closer

A movie (well, DVD) review because I feel like it. This might be something I’ll make a habit of – good thing to do and good practice. Getting “Closer” to the truth?

Mobile phone prank catches man’s head in bin

This is another one of those “I can’t believe this happened” stories… “Firemen tried to lubricate the man’s head then use the jaws of life, but eventually had to saw the top of the bin from around the man’s neck.” More “stupid things slightly or very drunk people will do on a Saturday night…” Share ...

Happy Birthday to William!
