I wonder if Benn requested it, probably did.

That I say I have been to Bielefeld makes me part of the Bielefeld Conspiracy.
I had to look that up - yes, apparently you are indeed in on it.

In the meantime, just for nostalgia's sake, back to the days when Labour actually had a Labour platform...

Just got some junk mail from a travel outfit called Amigos de los Americas. Apparently they are having a competition with tickets to the following places as prizes...
1st..Lima, Peru
2nd..Vera Cruz, Mexico
3rd..Ixtapa, Mexico
4th..New York, New York
5th........Houston, Texas. Never seen Houston be a prize for anything, so this is a serious breakthrough for the Houston Tourist Board (do we even have one?), even if the prize is for last place

Went to see We Will Rock You last night at the Dominion. I wanted to see it but was apprehensive as I'm a big Freddie fan and hate when people try and sing like him. It was an excellent show with music from Queen telling the story. Really well performed - no Freddie impersonations! They really brought the house down. Highly recommend it if you like Queen and get the chance.

For the second Sunday in a row, the Sunday Soccer program was cancelled due to the weather, thus delaying my son's premiere as a coach for both his daughters' teams. The girls were rather disappointed, so to distract them, he suggested that they pretend that they were outside having a picnic. When they were done, Anne Elise (almost 5) says "Daddy, can we pretend to be inside and watch a movie?"

The kid doesn't miss a trick.
