The ten weirdest things lost in the post

I love the milk one. When my brother was a gamekeeper in Tomintoul he sent my mum some deep frozen venison. By the time it arrived there was blood oozing out of the packaging. Very gruesome. It is amazing that it was delivered.

The Day the Chickens Came For Tea

The Provost Ceres Fife Scotland

This is the Provost from Ceres where we used to shop when I was little. He sits on a wall across the road from the former Bonelli's fish and chip shop. Great memories from my childhood with the photographs of the Ceres Highland Games, the oldest games in Scotland. We used to go every year. Thanks Tour Scotland

Photo Hunt Flags

I took this one of my brother Robin when he visited earlier this year. Just to prove he had been here.

Every now and again, the Australian flag gets dragged into the kids games.

Australians have a strong attachment to their flag. Not as patriotic as Americans though. Around Australia day, flags are on cars. Much less common to see them on people's houses or in their gardens.

Nice simple shot from our front door recently. A bit blurry, but who doesn't love a full moon.

Much better stuff at the Skywatch Friday Site.

How the Medja covers Celebrity Death

So true. Nothing going on, but we will fill you in on all the excrutiating details anyway. CNN and their pals have a lot to answer for. I am shocked that nobody has called me for my insight.

Video - Rudd's Spandarin beats Strine - The Age

Funny. What a linguogeekbot Rudd is. Hard to imagine Bob Hawke trying those tricks. He would at least get the strine bit right.

Pick n Mix now available online

Just working out how this would work. My grandmother used to love Pick n Mix. Trying to work out what she would make of this.

Photo Hunt: Creamy

Our chickens have turned from a predominantly creamy colour when we first got them, to a brown colour. Yesterday they had their first run around the garden. They were obviously happy with their meal of salt and vinegar crisps and vegemite sandwiches. Lucky them.

Fielding wants to talk to the Animals

Steve "Dolittle" Fielding spokesman Pushmi Pullu outlines Family First strategy on global warming.

It has to be about creationism, god, alcopops, family values or something.... he says. He plans to talk talk to the animals about Global Warming. After all they have been around the longest and will know.

Where does this guy get off?

English gets its millionth word today

Apparently English is the people language. I wonder which ugly evolving trend descriptor or word contraction will get the honour.

English terms like "Obamamania," "defriend," "wardrobe malfunction," "zombie banks," "shovel ready" and "recessionista" all have grown out of recent news cycles about the presidential election, economic crash, online networking or a sports event.

Personally I like to keep it simple.

And after all that, they chose web 2.0, a really ugly contraction for the gobbledegook that calls itself social media.

Twenty20 Super 8s with Ireland and without the Aussies. Where were Gilchrist and Hayden when they needed them?

Australia consigned to a fortnight in Leicester.
