Merry japes.....

I'm getting in early and giving you hints on tricks NOT to try on me.....I'm streetwise to all your combined strategies for getting me to give up the evil weed. They might work on Nick though....he never reads this! Click on the image for a readable version.

Good one Bex!!

And now you know how to do it we'll look forward to lots more!
PS....I'll never be able to watch another thrilling installment of "Herges Adventures of Tintin" in quite the same way again

How to post a video on the blog

Bex has asked how she can post a video on the blog (apparently there's lots of swear words.....I'm looking forward to it!) I've done a help sheet and put it in the Box Files, just click on it to download, it should open in acrobat reader

A quote from the guy on the wires....

Hello from Tynemouth! I'm sure the weather is lovely here but i'm still in front of my computer. Does this work ever end?? Apparently not. Enjoy the sun x x

Now apparently this is genuine.....

....Jazz legend Charles Mingus really DID produce this guide to toilet training your cat.....he was obviously a well-rounded individual! I've posted the full text of his 'method' in the Boxfiles and Moocah will be entering the training programme as soon as I can work out how to disuade him from his 'preferred place' behind the TV!

Just in case Anne misses this rousing write-up in the Chronic

Step back in time tomorrow as a host of 70s heartthrobs come to Newcastle. David Essex, David Cassidy, Showaddywaddy and The Osmonds. Thirty years ago you would have been hard-pushed to find these star names in the same place at the same time.Tomorrow, though, at the Metro Radio Arena that will be just what is happening as the Once In A Lifetime Rewind tour arrives in Newcastle.
It follows on from last year's Once In A Lifetime tour, and David Essex is looking forward to being back again."It was great fun when we last did it," says David. "I never met any of them, The Osmonds, David Cassidy or Bay City Rollers, until that show. I don't really deal in nostalgia, I don't do all that. I'm always moving forward, I write songs and put an album out every year and they do really well on the web. But this just seemed quite an intriguing thing to do. And I'm glad I did as it was like a celebration of a generation in a way.All those people that were affected by music in the middle 70s. They all seemed to be there, so it was good. I really did enjoy it.Obviously we'll be playing stuff from the latest album, it won't just be Hold Me Close and the other things. I think you can be a bit too arty in what you think and I did enjoy it last time."
Joining him again will be Jimmy Osmond who, with his brothers, are also looking forward to the tour.
Blah, blah, blah......

He "doesn't really deal in nostalgia".....I beg his pardon?!?!?
