The ESA Ladies gave me all the balloons to bring home for the kids.
It's funny how kids act when they see balloons - every time is the first time.

Who Mucked Up Muck Up Day? is an article which naturally appeals to me. But I stop to wonder - was high school really all so relaxed? Am I reminiscing with my golden glasses? Weren't we all just as stressed as the current generation? And then I REALLY look and decide YES, it was better. We really were a lot freer. No major wars were being fought so entry to the forces looked like a good career choice and entry to uni was easier.  The pervasiveness of electronica was yet to come so there were fewer distractions and surveillance was in its infancy hence you could still get away with a lot. If you mooned someone then they'd moon you back - now they report you to police for exposure (My court case comes up next week BTW  ;-P  )

Movie Non-Review

Killing Them Softly.  Brad Pit playing with Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms - this movie really needs a LOT more than chips. I suggest a laugh track and some very heavy drugs. I won't be seeing it.

4 Kittens

Yesterday the cat dropped her litter. This time she chose a far safer place to have them - in the footwell of the Suzuki. I'm not  big fan of cats but these ones are very gentle with the kids, have been able to avoid the dogs and provide excellent vermin control. Let me know if you would like one.  :-)
