Did I happen to mention

My one eyed-cat before? I don’t think so (and I even went to the bother of doing a little browse and didn’t find any reference to her.) I may be wrong of course, but don’t tell anyone. Okay, so a while back we got a kitten, she was very purty, and very playful. My lil […]

Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events [based on books]

I’ll admit first off that I haven’t read the books … yet. I did give the first three to my little sister for Christmas though, so I may get around to them at some stage. Then again the TBR pile does seem to be growing – but enough of that, back to the film.

The film starts out by warning us that this is no happy tale (if you want that you’ll have to lay your hands on “The Happiest Little Elf”).

Couple of Things

You know the one “wishing you and yours the very best this holiday season”. All I need now is to see that ancient Penny’s […]

The face of evil:

Chuggers! Otherwise known as Charity Muggers. If you live in any big city I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Those smiling faces who jump out and ask if you can “spare a moment”, or ask if you can afford a bottle of water. And if you can, will you use it to save […]
