I see that BBC News Online have also noticed the strange happenings at Eidos. At least it has been released in America, so although it was designed and programmed in England it gets released in the USA first, I think this what some people call Beta testing......

What is happening with the new Tomb Raider game? .....
It was due to be released before Christmas last year and then it was postponed until the new year and ever since then it has been delayed and delayed.
I pre-ordered it from Amazon in February and each time I go in to check, the release date keeps being put back. It was due to be released last Friday and now the release date is the 4th July(next Friday). At this rate it will be this Christmas before I get to play it. The expectation is now so great that I doubt the game however good will live up to it.

Well it's nearly time, I must confess that I have not read any of the earlier books and am not much of a HP fan but you just can't ignore it that's for sure.

Well, I may not have been posting much recently but that does not mean that I am unaware of what is going on in the land of blogs, hence my pilfering! of the Haloscan comments utility (see here and here)

INJECTION UPDATE : Emily did not have her injections today as she had a slight temperature, she was weighed though and is now 15lb 14oz

posted by James | 10:07 PM

I shall be leaving work early today so that I can hold down my youngest daughter Emily, in order to assist a near stranger in stabbing her with a sharp implement.
Yes it's another session of injections of which she is totally unaware. To be honest I have been lucky so far as it has always fallen to Helen to take both Rebecca and now Emily to be 'jabbed', but now I shall incur the hurt look of a baby, who looks up at you as you hold them as if to say ''what the ****, you're my parent and you're allowing this to happen!'
What actually happens is their face crumples and they scream and scream and scream and scream and scream and scream..........., for about 2 weeks.
Then after a few more weeks when they have just about forgotten what happened it is time to take them back for another lot!

Hi everyone! Helen the Infrequent One here. This is my first attempt at links and clever gizmos, so be patient if make a complete pigs ear of it...

Went to the Cheltenham Science Festival with Cindy on Friday and had a great time. Met Robert Kunzig after seeing his lecture, a great chap who wrote Mapping the Deep, a brilliant oceanography book. Also went to Richard Dawkins' lecture on his new book The Devil's Chaplain. Must confess that I was a bit of a Dawkins novice, but he was very good and makes you think about things... The last lecture we saw on the Friday was about life on Mars, based on a book written by Heather Couper and Nigel Henbest, The Inside Story of the Red Planet. The lecture was again great, and we managed to chat with them at the book signing afterwards (I'm afraid we did that after all three lectures!!!). The story of the Beagle 2 launch was a major part of the talk. Crossed fingers that all goes well and it makes it to the surface on Christmas Day!

On the Thursday night, James came with us to see a lecture on the Appollo moon landing, a debate between an investigator and camera expert who believed it WAS a hoax, and a scientist who believed every word of crap that NASA said (you may detect a slight bias there!). The scientist was a geologist, which should have been a good thing, but I'm afraid we were sadly disappointed in him. The camera expert had plenty of facts and details with evidence to back it up, and the scientist bloke didn't seem to do much except stand there and say it was all made up by this chap. Hey ho. The 'did they or didn't they' football will be kicked around for a few more years yet I think...

Also signed up to The Ecologist magazine. Very interesting stuff. Got a great book The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, a fantastic read by Greg Palast. All about how the Bush election was rigged, and all sorts of things the governments would rather we didn't all know. Fascinating stuff. Also got their book Go MAD - 365 daily ways to save the planet, which has LOADS of handy hints and fascinating stuff you never knew about things we all use every day without thinking. Good info on how to save the planet without having to try too hard! Everyone should have one.

Well, that's it for now. I promise not to make all my blogs so huge!

All the best to you all.

Okay, so they may not have the best football team in Europe let alone England anymore but at least they have this!

Why! I hear you ask.....

Thanks to Greg for this once in a lifetime job vacancy.

Right then, now that I am in a better state of mind and have had time to think, here are the details regarding the Rugby play-off fiasco......
The stats do not lie.....but we have to remember that last season Gloucester finished 2nd in the league 15 points behind Leicester, but beat them in the play-off final, so it appears that it all evens out in the end.
I think that something has to be changed as otherwise it makes the season meaningless, why play at your best week in week out when you can afford to lose around 5 games more than the team that finishes top and then still claim to be the best team in the league!

Unable to post much at the moment due to a bout of severe depression. May be some time before I feel well enough to post again. I would comment but am unable to string a semi-coherent sentence together at the moment.........................ARSE.
