The Lilyest Hobo

So funny, a mashup of lily allen and the theme to an old TV program, "the littlest hobo"

Who remembers the program? what? no-one? am I the only old git in the house?

any way, the video

and a link in case youtube embedding fails.

New favourite singer/song writer

By chance I heard a song on the radio (Steve Wrights show on Radio 2) which I liked on the first listen.

However a search of the radio 2 play lists didn't turn it up, Steve had slipped it in and of course I had missed the introduction.

Searching the half heard lyrics on the Internet didn't help but luckily someone on mumszone knew what it was.

Check him out, Henry Priestman on MySpace

His MySpace features two of my favourites, "Don't you love me no more" and "He ain't good enough for you"

You can also go to Henry Priestman .com.

It's really my sort of music, and well worth a listen.

A wonderfully silly

Look at homeopathy, crystal healing and other woo "science"

I think I'd prefer proper doctors myself.

Pay attention, the hospital signs are a giggle in themselves.

How to drive a Model T Ford

And people say nothing changes, it seems strange to me how the controls are so different, but they must have made sense to someone.

Not convinced with the safety aspect of taking your foot off a pedal to go faster, but I'm guessing safety wasn't a huge consideration.

compressed air cars

Not news to some, but I promised I would stick up links to the manufacturers

A compressed air car, somewhere on the site will be the PSI that the compressed air is stored at, probably in French as the English version of the site is not very consistent

oops, forgot the target text in the link
