I have just received the following sad news ......

Subject: soccer assault?

An Australian man has been arrested in Italy for an assault on a local
man after the World Cup soccer match between Australia and Italy.

Witnesses say the Australian was 20 metres away when the incident

The victim suffered a fractured skull, a cardiac arrest and has
developed diabetes as a result of the incident.

He is expected to recover in a few minutes.

Ducks are creepy

Hitchcock was onto something when wrote The Birds. But I think he would have had more impact if he used ducks. Ducks creep me out. Here they are creeping. Sitting an’ creeping. Watching me on my way to work.

White Goods

Out with the old and in with the new. In an impulse purchase that we had planned for months Alex stopped by the white goods section of a department store when on a baby cloths mission. She picked up a low water use front loader washing machine with more technology than the space shuttle and a bigger, quieter more enviro-friendly dryer than the old one. With shop deals, credit card points, cash back from the manufacturer for a double purchase and from the government for a water efficient purchase they almost paid us to buy them.
Anybody local want to buy a used washer and dryer?
Now, if only we can get a pair of expedition sea kayaks in the same manner.

The long and the short of it.

Some primal fibre someplace in my being is vibrating in harmonic sympathy with the turn of the seasons. As I sit here I imagine that some distant Celtic ancestor could not possibly imagine that a future descendant of theirs would not be painted blue and engaged in sacred ritual on this day. Timed by the movement of a shadow cast by a great stone monolith torches are lit and howling painted deadlocked tribe call out to natural forces as real to them as the air they breath.
So should you feel the sudden urge to run around in a forest it is probably a similar ancestral memory stirring, happy Solstice.
