“must read web fodder”

UNTIMELY DEATH — Balky attempt to make some deaths more tragic than others. It’s among the Banished Words for 2003.

Woo hoo It’s snowing in London again – and it’s just started to stick. Another few days of snowmen and snowballs I hope.


Does anyone know where I can buy Twizzlers in the UK. I think I have become addicted :(


As Dave says it is sad when you resort to buying sweets off the interwebnet. But needs must. CyberCandy has an excellent (albeit rather pricey) range of sweets/lollies/candies from around the world.

On Wednesday morning I walked Jack as usual before heading off to the train station and whilst walking down Ellison Road in Streatham I spotted a few police vans, assorted cars and numerous policemen and women.
