King of the blogs

Well my entry for the first King of the Blogs contest has been described by Practical Penumbraas ” a very well written post, only not funny”. I didn’t realise humour was part of the deal!!!! Tamasin my daughter came up with a great joke today- ‘Whats a Barbeque?’ A ‘Its a line of people dancing like barbies!’ Read more

Daniel Bedingfield and the Fame Academy final

There seems to be a lot of noise out there about how Daniel Bedingfield was supposed to have been rude to someone in the Fame Academy Final. One writer criticised “the way Daniel Bedingfield totally blanked him”. I can’t really comment on this, as I didn’t watch the final, but I wonder whether the following quote gives any insight into this situation…..

Michael Jackson accused

ChristWeb said: “Let’s treat him like everyone else. I believe that if I was being charged with multiple accounts of child molestation that I would not be asked politely to return to the state at my earliest convenience to turn myself in.

Unwanted embryos

Yahoo! News reports that “400,000 human embryos remain frozen in U.S. fertility clinics.” and that embryo donation so that unwanted embryos can be used by others is now possible. If we really believe that life begins at conception, then this treatment of 400,000 human beings is surely one of the biggest unseen ethical crises of this century. Read more
