Books

I've just finished reading Joanne Harris's trilogy 'Chocolat', 'The Lollipop Shoes' and 'Peaches for M. le Cure'.

I had seen the movie of 'Chocolat', but never read the book. I enjoyed all three and would recommend them. If anything I think I enjoyed each one more than the previous one.

Cloud (burst)

I find it quite fascinating that in this day and age 'celebrities' would be naive stupid enough to store nude photos in a 'cloud', and then be surprised and indignant that they have been hijacked and gone viral. Really??!!

For a start, do you have to have nude photos of yourself?  That's what mirrors are for! Second, anyone with half a brain wouldn't store anything they didn't want to share, on a computer. Time to grow up folks. It's the sort of thing you'd expect from teenagers, but even they are wise to the ways of the hackers.

Iraq Again

The world is rallying humanitarian aid for the people of Iraq, which is as it should be. Cries of genocide have gone up.

Where were they when Israel was bombing the crap out of Gaza?? Is that not genocide, or is the fact that it's Israel make it OK? The Israelis consider the killing of women, children and civilians and reducing their homes to mounds of rubble a reasonable response to Hamas.

Hamas is fighting for their homeland. Israel was once Palestinian land. If you look at these maps, you will see just how much or rather how little of Palestine is left. When it's all been subsumed I wonder which country will be next?

Another One Gone

How sad to know that Robin Williams is no longer with us. I couldn't believe it when I heard it on the radio yesterday.

I'll bet he's ad-libbing his way through the pearly gates. I'll miss him.  I've enjoyed his humour since Mork and. Mindy.

So many comedians suffer from depression. Very, very sad.
