VDO in New Cop Show!

Old news now, I know, but my first reaction to the news, which I rceived in an early email from an ardent Vixen, was What is the show called? And Why?

Because this is what I read, instead of Blue Tilt!

Best View In The World

Can be seen from anywhere.

But baby's SO tired.

Engineering With Cats

The guys who brought you Yodelling with Cats have produced this hilarious new video. I literally had tears running down my cheeks all the way through.

This shortened version was made for Cheezburger, there is a longer version on YouTube.

Active Giant

I think I've used that alternative title before, but it seems so apt.

ALDLife video

My student's mother has just sent me this promotional video for her charity that supports sufferers of ALD, their families, and research into the condition.

I had a bit of a blub. Have some hankies to hand.

Masters of their art

So we come to Bobby's favourite perp, as good at what he does as our hero is at his calling.

Anyone Else Notice?

I just watched an episode of LOLA, and I would swear that the "These are their stories" voice is Leonard Nimoy.

I don't think they credit The Voice at the end, so does anybody know this for sure one way or the other?

I really hate this episode.

And our poor baby looks so exhausted.

110, RIP

My house is 110 years old. It was registered in January 1901, in the final days of Victoria's reign.

Some years ago, my neighbour needed to remove the pots from our joint chimney stack and fit cowls, so that he could have a back boiler (a boiler behind his gas fire). He gave me my two to use as garden ornaments, as was the fashion.

Over the years I have placed plant pots in the tops of them for decoration. This year I put some tomato plants in one. They grew lots of leaves and not much fruit, and the first two tomatoes were nearing ripening thanks to our lovely summer.

Then yesterday's heavy winds came along.

They caused a lot of damage nationwide, though fortunately only one death. Even though our winds were lighter than the north, over 40mph can be devastating.

As my elderly chimney pot discovered, with the wind whipping through those leafy tomato plants and crashing the pot to the ground.

Luckily it missed the chicken run by inches. The shards are incredibly sharp, as my arm can testify. And so 100 years of history are smashed to smithereens.

As for the tomato plants...

Rising Star

I don't like the episode Eosphoros, but like the god of the morning star, I'd always welcome its star.

If that makes any sense at all.
