Tells you which model they are using and gives high level of detail. Like it. Seems to have current conditions for Ruralville about right.

Hmm. I'm not sure about this article – it concentrates rather too much on the francophones resident in Flanders and not the reverse scenario. Seems to portray the Flemish as a bunch of xenophobes, which isn't my experience.

Five years ago today, I met a tall, blonde, beautiful woman with a lovely smile, gorgeous eyes and very sexy calf-length boots, outside a cookware shop in Tunbridge Wells. After apologising for being late, I kissed her on the cheek and took her hand. We went for coffee, then for a walk in the autumn leaves, a pint and then fish and chips.
Six and a half weeks later, in Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen, I asked her to marry me.
We still enjoy days like that. And I still fancy her like crazy.

Makes you think. I particularly enjoy hearing about the Pioneer (and Voyager) missions – they have been around for much the same time as me.

Brilliant! I'd like to put a poster like this on my house, but as it is not a place of worship, I'm not exempt from the Control of Advertisement regulations.
Twenty years of Matt. Genius.
Rageh Omaar (zoiks!) on the place and history of Islam in America. Revealing.

ah, time to come out of the closet – I'm a secret Bloc Party fan. Excellent on Jools Holland tonight, I may be forced to procure the new album.
Excellent on the Jools Holland show. Likely to be on the shopping list very soon.

Hmm. Map lust. I rather like the Robinson projection versions. It's a shame that they don't do a Europe map at the moment.

Slightly tree-hugging, but I like the hand-made approach. I think we will split our order between two or three companies this year and see how we get on.
