there will be a slight delay while your request is being processed

949 posts to catch up on in bloglines
too many emails to wade through

...lets hope Qantas can keep all its bits on the plane as I leap across the Tasman once more.

PS: Hope your holidays are better than mine. Sorting out dementia daycare, a week of cleaning, assorted other domestic duties and grumpy old men and women does not a merry holiday make (even on a triple dose of St Johns Wort...)

shock horror - HRH Liz wears same outfit twice

82 year old monarch tells grandkiddies to reign it in these holidays so the common man won't feel as bad about the credit crunch. Liz plans to turn the lights out, maybe wear the same outfit more than once and hit the hay early with a mug of horlicks as a nod to the spirit of the Blitz credit crunch. More.

It would have taken too much time to write about police shooting a 15 year old boy (do you think 10 bullets in his never to be fully grown body is overkill in the truest sense of the word?) or the British verdict in a similarly misdirected kill...sorry still limited to 30 second posts.
