27th January 2005 - can you see the middle finger on my right hand? Apparently a food allergy causes this Popeye effect - wheat is my guess - last night the throbbing woke me up it was that bad (altogether now, "ahhh").
20th January 2005. A beautiful holographic image of a labrador has appeared on my desk at work. Formed from a patch of dried juice from an apple I ate some time ago that I appear to have overlooked in any cleaning I have done lately, it truly is a miraculous apparition. Unfortunately this poor quality image taken on my PDA does not do any sort of justice to it and you'd be advised to drop by and pay a tenner and I can let you see the full image in all it's glory. The spirit of St Francis is, I am sure, alive and well in central London. And remember, you read about it here first.
8th / 9th January 2005 (depending on time zones). You possibly may not be able to read this by the time it gets to the web - what it is is a notice on the front door of Texas Children's Hospital saying that carrying a concealed gun is not allowed. It comes below the no smoking sign. Yes, to repeat, this is at the Texas CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL. Not a place one would have thought there would be much call for carrying a gun.
