The Hamster

I doubt if anyone reading this hasn't heard about TopGear and Braniac presenter Richard Hammonds serious accident.

However, a number of busybodies are calling for TopGear to be axed citing that it encourages people to drive to fast etc.

1. I don't beleive it does

2. It's a great show, I love it even though I'm not really a car person.

So I have signed this online petition to keep TopGear on television. If you agree that TopGear should stay on TV, please sign it as well.

In other news, fans of the show have so far raised nearly 75,000 quid towards the Yorkshire Air Ambulance appeal, a fantastic amount in so short a time. See for yourself.

Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding throught the glen!

I've just heard from writer Paul Cornell's blog that the new Robin Hood series is to start airing on the 7th October.

I've been looking forward to this as it seems to be getting the same treatment as Doctor Who, updating everything for the 00's

I will always have a soft spot though for the excellent and beautiffuly shot "Robin of Sherwood" series, such a shame it never got finished.

I'll bite, I'll go for it.

I think the person who did this cartoon was aiming for it to be splashed across blogs worldwide, and who am I to argue, I found it funny!

An open letter to Our Glorious Leaders

e.g. Bush and Blair, both of whom profess to be religious sorts full of piety.

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered innocent men, who were not opposing you.

Not my words, but the words of St. James

I thought however that the words of a saint from the actual bible you profess to respect might just hit home where my words could not.

James 5:1-6
