You may remember quite a while ago in this post, Beezkneez floated the idea of the Ultimate Splat Up on 12/12/12.
Obviously we have missed that date, but do you like the idea? Tell us when and where would be your Ultimate Splat Up, and what would we get up to?
Can something really be unseen…?
So, I was reading an article about Lance Armstrong (but don’t worry, that’s not what this post is about – no matter how much he might like us to unsee things!) which mentioned how people had been posting unfavourable reviews on Amazon, and that Manly library were going to move . . . → Read More: Reaching for the mental bleach
Richard Glover is a writer whose columns span a huge gamut of topics, and I almost always enjoy them. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes gently amusing, sometimes insightful. In the article Forget about pot luck – step into the sunlight, he draws a parallel between plants that blossom best when positioned properly with relationship to the sunlight, . . . → Read More: Soaking up the Sun

People are shocked by that until . . . → Read More: In March I made an NPC village into a little replica Winterfell, I can cross that off my bucket list

Boring items removed, we found what I am prepared to call the most fabulous collection . . . → Read More: Frivolous Offering Friday
Mrs H is away for a fortnight. Along with a close friend (and honorary family member) she has taken the grandsons on a holiday to Queensland. She has been away a week and a half and will return on Sunday. D2, hubby and son are living here so, strictly speaking, I haven’t been lonely.
