There I was quite innocently looking at some new BaseCamp functionality, the 'ta-da list'.
'View public ta-da lists it said".
The one called 'Life Goals' caught my eye, with just a single entry...

Michael Owen's getting homesick apparently.
"I do miss certain things about not being in England - being around your family, your friends, being in your house.
"I had just had my house reshaped and virtually the minute it was finished I was leaving. It is my dream house (with) two dogs, my horse and all the land that I want."

OK, if this doesn't get you excited you're technically dead.
It's basically a scrollable Streetmap - literally actually, as I'm choring their images. Bit naughty but brilliant.
Just click on the map and drag or input a postcode. London only at the moment however.
Seems to work better in Firefox than IE. Like everything else then.
PS If you're having problems with seeing comments and stuff hit ctrl-f5 on your browser. It's because of stupid caching.

A short article on the 'science' of creationism. I always wonder whether schools in the States are permitted to teach children about dinosaurs. Or astronomy. Or big bang theory. Or, frankly, any of a miriad of current accepted theories that run contrary to the teaching of the good book.
Anyway, from the article..
One of its originators, Phillip Johnson, a law professor at UC Berkeley, wrote in a 1999 article: "The objective is to convince people that Darwinism is inherently atheistic, thus shifting the debate from creationism versus evolution to the existence of God versus the nonexistence of God. From there people are introduced to 'the truth' of the Bible and then 'the question of sin' and finally 'introduced to Jesus.' "

If you've got half an hour for the slowest website in the world to load, you can calculate the likely effect the Lib Dems Local Income Tax would have on your household.
After seeing Charles Kennedy taking an absolute pasting from Paxman tonight (a bit strong and personal even for my taste) I thought I'd have a look and see if I could find the website that he mentioned.
I'm not sure about the 'taxing the rich' theory, if, as was pointed out, a fireman and nurse wife would pay an extra £480 a year.

There we go then. The Sun backs Blair. One suspects they played it safe until they are pretty sure.
That'll be it then really. A disappointingly solid performance up against Paxman.

In the headlines in the Observer today.
More evidence that Tony Blair is a blatent liar.
And evidence that the current Pope obstructed sexual abuse claims.
I'm always happy to have my armchair hatreds stoked in such a manner.

If anyone watched ITV's coverage of the San Marino GP yesterday will know which one I'm talking about. Well the main one anyway.
With 4 laps remaining of the most exciting race in several years, ITV decide to go to an full length ad break returning only to see the last three quarters of the final lap.
And anyone that saw the race would have to admit that Schumacher's performance was simply awesome.

It doesn't stop at bees.
Apparently, other insects suffer an equally cruel fate.
Take the lac; a scale insect.
"To produce just 1 kilogram of lac resin around 300,000 insects lose their tiny lives."
