It was about this time last year that Emily had a nasty case of Chicken Pox. Now she has been diagnosed with Roseola (Exanthema Subitum). It must be something to do with the time of year, as for the rest of the year she is fine!

Going once.....going twice.....

will he?   won't he?Michael Owen's Liverpool future remains in doubt after he was left out of their Champions League qualifier in Austria.
The England striker watched Liverpool beat Graz AK 2-0 from the bench to avoid being cup-tied amid speculation he will join Real Madrid.

*** UPDATE ***

Liverpool striker Michael Owen's switch to Real Madrid may have suffered a hitch.


Liverpool striker Michael Owen will join Real Madrid in an 8m plus player deal according to a source close to the club, BBC Five Live has reported.

An explanation

Mate, it would be great to meet up for a chat and a drink, your going to have to explain that site for me!?!?!

Andrew, this is my attempt at a blog, an online journal. The idea is that I add entries as I would a conventional journal/diary. I also use it as an on-line photo album, to enable other surfer's friends(such as your good self) and family to keep up to date with my family. This would work better if I took more photos and actually upload the ones I do take. You will notice that the entries are very sporadic and mostly consist of links to other articles.....this is due to the fact that I find it very difficult to come up with interesting/amusing/relevant articles of my own!

It also allows me to link to other sites (for news/sport articles, other blogs etc), that I think my reader(s) will find interesting.

and that is what I keep telling myself.

WHITE HOUSE It's another entry in the long catalog of Bushisms.

Signing a defense spending bill, President Bush declared America's terrorist enemies "never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people" -- then he added, "And neither do we."

Is music safe on compact disc?

Compact discs were sold as the durable alternative to vinyl - but anyone who opens the case of an ageing CD may be in for a nasty surprise.

Oh dear, this was not meant to be. All those vinyl enthusiasts who have kept their collection of LP's will be laughing now.

Maybe, this is the answer
