Update: the ‘doggie link’ is no longer working so I’ve put it up here. It’s a display by dog trainer Carolyn Scott and her dog Rookie dancing to ‘You’re the One That I Want’ from the movie Grease and it’s 1.6mb. But well, well worth it.
Graeme over at lazy laces tells us of a great new search engine. I’ve done extensive testing throughout the night and can confirm that results are impressive. Not only has it supplied a cure for back pain and insomnia but it has — you won’t believe this– come up with previously uknown biographical details on news goddess Fiona Bruce. Impressive indeed.
Dog News – “weird, inspiring dog tales”. Jam-packed full of every sort of dog tale you can imagine. Bang goes my weekend, I’ll be reading Dog News.
“… Although several cats were heard openly snickering about the issue, no local dogs agreed to comment on record for The Interior News.”

This could catch on.
Hong Kong – A man feuding with his neighbour in China is being sued for naming his pet dog after the woman next door and cursing at it in public, a news report said Saturday.
The man from Wulong, Chongqing, had a long-running feud with neighbour Lin Ling, according to the Hong Kong edition of the China Daily.
When he bought a dog, he called it Ling Ling and repeatedly shouted its name and cursed it in public, the newspaper said.
Lin Ling has now taken out a lawsuit claiming the man’s behaviour is damaging her reputation. She is seeking 1,000 yuan in compensation.
The archives should now be working. I daren’t try and display them as March 2003, April 2003, etc. because the last time I did that all hell broke loose. Well, I think Blogger buggered up the archives, then I fixed them (me! all on my own!) but then ruined it by the display change. So working on the theory “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”, they shall stay like that until I move.
I’ve been reading some wonderful blogs lately and not had time to link them so I’ve started a Daily Spotlight (look to your left) where I’ll try and post a new link each day. It won’t necessarily be other blogs, just writing that I’ve enjoyed and want to share.
I’m not terribly happy with the green highlighter but it’s gone 2:30 in the morning and I think I might be able to sleep now so I’ll fix it
tomorrow later today.
Thanks go to meg (mandarin design) for the highlighter, and ranzino at istock for the star light photo. And Blogger gets a favourable mention – the new “Preview” mode when you’re faffing about with the template gets a big thumbs up.
Now I’d really like to fix the broken table at the bottom of the left hand column. And add two more sections. I know I should go get the book and figure it out but I’ve been looking at the template and I’m a bit afraid to tinker with it. Ahem *cough* any offers of help would be gratefully accepted…
