|The "Jewel" in West Sussex's crown that is known as Crawley is not known for it's cultural highlights, however, one is pleased to announce that some high moments of performance art could be spotted in the town center this lunchtime. Firstly there was the OAP singing to the keyboard backing track of "Evergreen", who at one point almost sounded like Barbara Streisand (not bad for a 70+ yo male) and Secondly, an odd gentleman in shorts playing an authentic digeridoo (a hollowed out tree branch, not one of those reconstituted tubes you see in the shopping malls)... a lovely sound, but you can' knock much of tune out of it. Cyclic breathing was employed... by the dogery-doo player ... not the 70+ Barbara Striesand Impersonator...|
Barabara Streisand, uncannily impersonated by a Crawley Senior Citizen... today

Rightly, or wrongly, I followed a link to a website that contained the uncensored video of the murder by al-Qaeda of American hostage Nick Berg. I am constantly amazed at the brutality that we as humans can inflict upon each other. There are no words I can use to adequately describe the sheer revoltion, anger, sadness and contempt I subsequently felt. The termination of any life is senseless, but when that action is detached from the individual upon who it is inflicted, it is particularly sickening.
As a Human Race...Today, we seem more lost than ever
To Nick Berg's family and friends, you are in my thoughts

Moved desks today. Must have been there 5 years+. Given the events of the past few weeks it was kinda strange discovering all the old bits n pieces I kept and how my life had changed whilst sitting at that desk. Little drawings, photo's, gifts etc.
Life is changing fast, that's for sure.

Apart from the odd shirt when away on biz (I still say that hanging the shirt in the bathroom, running the hot shower with the doors closed gets the creases out faster). I have successfully managed to avoid ironing for the first 38 years and 11 months of my life... until now. Now I have two questions
a) Public opinion is that ironing is the work of the devil, so obviously this new found joy wears off. How long before I too will be cursing Satan?
b) Where does the ironing board plug in? I've looked everywhere.
The Tefal Avantis 95, newly purchased, along with the "Blue Skies" ironing Board Cover... yesterday
