Out of the mouths of popstars


Today only, Handcuffed Lightning is being edited by a very special guest, Celine Dion.

Over to you, Celine. No, no. We don't want to hear about the power of love. We are interested in the other stuff you've had to say recently:

"I open the television, there's people still there, waiting to be rescued, and for me it's not acceptable, I know there's reasons for it [the delayed relief effort]. I'm sorry to say I'm being rude, but I don't want to hear those reasons. How come it's so easy to send planes in another country to kill everyone in a second, to destroy lives?"
Leaving aside the interesting question of how many people Celine has trapped inside her television, waiting for her to open it, it is a sad day when the voice of reason comes from a woman hitherto more famous for wearing a tuxedo back to front on purpose.

Bad news blogs?
Blogs are everywhere -- increasingly, the place where young people go to bare their souls, to vent, to gossip.
You obviously think things through! My website on preventing fleasis about lots of preventing fleas related issues. Please feel free to check it out. There's a free report for you there on dog health, too!

I don't know quite how to take that. Maybe it's a subtle way of saying that last post was a little bitchy. Or that if you lie down with dogs, you might get up with fleas ...

What a tremendous comment! At last, the latent power of the blog is realised - not news, not editorial, not humour, not a place for "young people" to vent, to gossip, but a formidable tool for combatting canine health problems.

I say fair warning bloggers - the future is here.
