NTNOCN - I Like Trucking.

The remains of the day.

It's not that I don't try. It's just that I can't seem to produce anything interesting. This is all that is left of the Thursday 13 things I don't understand, set by Jen. If you think this is poor, you should see what I have rejected. Well, maybe you shouldn't. I have an undeserved reputation complex disorder compulsion thingy.

Since hair is a topical subject.
The war on hair. I don't really understand why people go to such great lengths to eliminate body hair. If hair on your head is tolerated, then I don't see what's the problem with hair on ones legs, back, oxters and face. All we are doing is making the directors of Reckitt Benkaiser and Procter & Gamble very, v e r y rich.

The mystery surrounding the Pyramids at Giza.
It seems obvious to me the pyramids are oil wells. If deep drilling is beyond ones technology, then the next best thing is to exert as much pressure as possible on the ground above to force any oil upwards. This maximum can be realised in the smallest footprint with a solid pyramid.

Interview with Sue Lawley 1982.

Gollum Update.

Baby Lemur is Born 4 Weeks Premature. Update 12th March 2007.

The baby Ring-tailed Lemur above was born here at the park in the early hours of Valentine’s Day. The lemur was estimated to be four weeks premature, weighing only 40 grams. Unfortunately his mother, Lucy, didn’t know what to do with such a small thing and the Pets farm wardens had to step in to give him the 24 hour care he needs.

For the last three weeks the wardens have been taking it in turns to take the little lemur home to hand rear him.
This has meant some sleepless nights for them as the lemur has had to be fed every 2 hours. To feed the lemur, they have been using a small kitten feeder filled with SMA gold as it’s the closest milk they can get to the real thing. He now weighs 55 grams (normal birth weight) and is becoming much more active and interested in his surroundings.

The eventual plan is to re-introduce him back into his group as soon as possible and all the signs are encouraging. Keep your fingers crossed.

Lemon Blue sells for $15million.

Today at Christy's in York, Sans Pantaloons Lemon Blue portrait changed hands for $15,000,000. Pantaloons - who began his career painting garden gnomes - has fallen from grace recently having not produced anything worthwhile since 1976.

Having pocketed his cheque less commission, Pantaloons was quoted as saying "Yahoo!, I'm off."

In for repair...

A team of dedicated Scientists are trying to fix me.

Meanwhile, A song:
Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue paint red
Hopeful for a summer's day,
With eyes that know the nonsense in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Thread the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen gauze.
Now I think I know, what you tried to say to me,
How you suffer for your sanity,
How you tried to serve them veg.
They would not listen, they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will...

I will exercise for comments...

When I purchased the treadmill, I never knew it would be such exhausting effort. After only one mile per day, I am knackered.

I'm a Lumberjack and I'm okay!

Please don't ask. Only nonsense will be expectorated.
And now, the real deal...

Update Wednesday. Today when I visited the Baker, I asked for three Lumberjacks. The assistant replied "large ones?"

Longmire does Romance Novels.

Apologies if you have seen or posted about this before.

While searching images for Jen's Thursday Thirteen, I happened upon this site.

There are some very funny submissions, by both the artist Mark Longmire, and his readers. I might have the Thursday Thirteen ready by Thursday, some the future. Maybe.

My secret identity.

The Great, Wonderful and Talented Jen, has graced me with this fine graphic. At least I can't be accused of wearing underpants on the outside.

The question to be asked is, Who is my nemesis?

I used to be Some Cat...

This is for Tanya.

Clicking on the graphic should enable an enormous view.

Will you be my Mummy?

Staff at a safari park are hand-rearing a baby lemur rejected by his mother. The week-old ring-tailed lemur has been named "Gollum" by staff at Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling in Scotland.
He weighed just 1.8oz and was 4 inches long when he was born, so staff are feeding him every two hours on baby milk to build up his strength. He is so small they use a kitten feeding bottle. Usually a mother would carry a baby lemur on her back for the first few weeks of its life, and Gollum follows his natural instinct by clinging on to a soft toy.

The ring-tailed lemur, like all other lemurs, is found only in the wild on the island of Madagascar, but is the most common of the species to be found in zoos.
