Spotted this on The Bis Key Chronicles
Well I though it was funny…
Especially liking the Facebook one. Nah, I don’t like fruitcake either.
Kate and William are expecting a baby. I’m very happy for them and wish them well. Just as I would anyone else.
The problem is the press. They are bombarding us with Royalty/pregnancy related articles. Even the most tenuous links are explored.
Plus we have the extra bonus of Kate’s “hyperemesis gravidarum” to be informed about.
I don’t watch that much TV so that’s easily avoided. I don’t “buy” newspapers or magazines either. No problem there.
But do I have to navigate through the mass of trifling “Wills and Kate plus one” news for the next few months to get to some “informative” headlines?
The Daily Mail sidebar is full of royalty/pregnancy links because there obviously isn’t much that is more newsworthy to put in there…
They have already given us a view of what they think the future Prince/Princess will look like.
I’m not a Republican, but neither am I a Royalist. We have a Royal Family and that’s it. I’m pretty much indifferent. I choose not to be interested in it on the whole.
Why can’t the Press keep all Royal related stuff under one link or is that too much to ask?
Edvard Munch – The Scream. Very much how I’m feeling about it today!
This rant is certainly the first, last and only post about the matter that will be seen on this blog.
Oh my word it’s cold this morning! Lodges are frozen over. Poor ducks.
The photo below was taken not long ago. It’s a bit hazy due to my breath on the window.
Need to go into town this morning, hope daughter’s car starts OK.
The Daily Mail was advertising their sister website yesterday. Today I’m Wearing.
It seems anyone can upload daily pictures of what they are wearing for readers to vote on.
Should I upload mine I wonder? Today I’m wearing my thermal vest, two baggy T-shirts, big woolly jumper and finger-less gloves. I will soon be wearing my attractive hat with animal face which cover my ears and lovely sensible boots. Final touch will be a scarf that covers most of my face….
As an accessory I will be carrying my trusty folding walking stick, to help with balance.
Edit: I should add I am also wearing jeans, in case you were picturing something different reading that!
Ah…the last day of Nablopomo. Back to normality.
Not long to go now with Nablopomo. It finishes on Friday thank goodness. It’s been a bit of a bind and I probably won’t do it again! But I started so I’ll finish…
On the plus side it has introduced me to some blogs I probably wouldn’t have seen by checking under the topic heading in the reader.
Speaking of the reader, some of the new posts haven’t been showing up at my end. So I’ve started checking each site from my blog roll every so often. I’d hate people to think I wasn’t interested in their posts.
Also, some comments and ping-backs have been going straight to spam, so I have now started checking those very carefully.
I have changed back to the Bueno theme as you can see. The last one was nice, but I wasn’t keen on the reply post background in the comments section. Plus I prefer the straight lines of this theme. I can have an Archive page too.
Ha ha…I have finally figured out to make a custom menu and put certain post categories at the top of the page. Brilliant.
This site here explained it well. I’ll keep it bookmarked for further reference in case the brain cells fail me again.
On a final note. It is Lancashire Day today.
Lancashire Day is held on 27 November. It commemorates the day in 1295 when Lancashire sent its first representatives to Parliament by King Edward I of England to attend what later became known as The Model Parliament.
Curated by the Friends of Real Lancashire, it was first observed in 1996 with the loyal toast to “The Queen, Duke of Lancaster”, and is open to celebration from everywhere within the county palatine. The day since has been widely publicised, including mentions on the BBC website and in the local press. The day receives support from both district councils  and Lancashire County Council; Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council has resolved to support the day every year. Many towns throughout the historic county host events on the day, most notably readings of the Lancashire Day Proclamation.
