Oh no, this is terrible news. I love ducks. I feed them on a weekly basis here. But all kinds of birds have a good sense of direction so don't give up hope just yet. She will probably return one day soon.

What with the speed and efficiency of growing GM crops (not to eat, of course - I would never advise that) I wonder if having a vegetable oil based fuel industry wouldn't be so space consuming. Though I'm sure bibical hippies would hate that idea. So yes, electric seems the logical choice here.

I would love this world to go all Mad Max 2 and simply run out of fossil fuels. Just watch how quickly aternative power sources materialise overnight then!

And as for planes... why are things like private jets even necessary? Seriously.

Fracking seems to be Cameron's new baby, and it's possiby the most ignorant choice he's made thus far (apart from stealing from sick people of disability allowance, of course.)

Look at me in full tree-hugger mode here!

Aw, missed that bit earlier... hope ducky finds the way home soon.

Indeed, I agree with you both. Apart from the dangers of what it could actually lead tod after years and years of this (so little is known about what could happen to the stability of our planet if we keep raping it like this), I can't beliueve it's 2014 and we are still insisting on using fossil fuels. For heavens sake... the electric car was properly prototyped in the 60's! Stop pandering down to the fuel giants and work on a mass-availabe, renewable, green energy we should've had decades ago. The science is there, and it works. It's worked for years. Just what are the governments of the world afraid of? (As if we didn't already know.)

For some odd reason, the attachment uploader (what I use to put pics on etc.) has not been working for a while now. Keep getting this error message:

An Error Has Occurred!
Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow.
Please consult your server administrator for more information.


The last pic I tried was a mere 140kb jpeg, so I'm thinking size isn't the problem.

Any ideas?

Also, how comes the youtube videos aren't embedding anymore?

Anyone?

Or is this just me?!  ???

Any help would be, umm, helpful. Thanks in advance.

As much as I love Ricky Gervais, I'm kinda hoping he doesn't ruin the new Muppet movie.

Gotta be Heinz or Branston. Nothing else will do.

Another pretty good day today. Took a nice long walk to survey the destruction... never seen so many downed trees. Quite a surreal wander indeed.

ATTENTION! The photo-uploader hasn't been working for ages now. Is it just me?

John Henson - son of the legendary Jim - passed away on Valentine's day. How sad. I am a huge Muppets fan and he will be missed. Only 48. :-(

Good God! No winds today... and dare I say actually SUNSHINE! What the hell? It's like it never happened. Come on Spring... I'm ready!

Not sure if it was me who posted Lana... I do drift in and out of liking/loving her so it's possible. But yes, she has one of those tones that grates on you after a while. A little bit of a downer.

When it comes to Daniela Andrade... I discovered her about 10 days ago and as it stands now I have donwloaded everything of hers I could find. Really blown away by her. I'm much into retro music, so it's very rare for me to get giddy like this over a new singer. But if she ever turns up on X Factor I will lose all respect for her though.

So my attempt at a garlic sirloin went horribly wrong. Had to break out the ketchup halfway through just to salvage the meat. Oh well, it's the thought that counts I guess and Mrs. Triple-6 didn't seem to mind too much. KFC next year!
