Default Small things that make you smile

I just noticed that articles relating to the Michael Jackson trial on cnn.com are listed in their law section. The articles on bbc.com are listed under entertainment. Just a small thing that made me chuckle to myself.

Small things that make me smile, when the local co-op has Kronenbourg...

Seeing a can of Heinz Baked Beans...

When the fat arsed squirrel that's lurking outside misses the branch...

Seeing my daugher catch one of the cats unawares (they are petrified of her) for a quick cuddle.

American coins. Only four of them (penny, nickel, dime and quarter) but I hate how the pennies accumulate in one's purse...

Hearing my dog burp like a person. Always makes me laugh!

(And she really does sound like a person -- if you weren't looking you'd think it was a human making that sound!)

The look of exquisite pleaure on my 3 week old daughters face as she fills yet another nappy, to the refrain of what appears to be the beans sketch from Blazing Saddles playing somewhere in her cot...
