I bet the blogs are alive with comment on the latest terror threat currently overrunning the UK's media at present. To be honest I don't think it's anything to worry about, it'll all blow over. The Atlantic most probably! Ah hurdy hurr hurr.
Another noteworthy media occurence (for me anyway) was the reporting of Lonesome George the last Abingdon Island Giant Tortoise (Geochelone nigra abingdonii) left in the world. Although a zoo in Prague claims to have another male, so there could be a mate for him. But not mate in the sexual sense of the word. Unless they are Gaylapagos Island Tortoises of course. I live in Abingdon, Oxon, UK and was thinking of contacting the town council to see if we could sponsor him or raise money etc as part of a pointless PR stunt.
Something not noted in the national media surprisingly was the new horn Toby got for his bike. He was very pleased with it, honking at anything that moved on the way back from town. He told us that he was going to, "cycle round the Oldies and honk his horn so that they all come out of their houses". He was most distressed when this didn't actually go as planned. He was pedalling round, furiously honking his horn to no effect; the doors remained firmly closed and not even a curtain twitched. "It's not working Mum!" he wailed, "It's not working!!".Yesterday I got spam from these "people":
