Horizon: The secret life of cats

So Horizon is showing The Secret Life Of Cats. In which we get to see what 50 flea-bitten moggies get up to during the hours their “owners” are away, and during the night. One cannot help wonder why these cats are not kept indoors, and are allowed to roam and defecate on other peoples’ property […]

A few things

There have been a couple of things lately which have annoyed me in one way or another. I meant to write about them all individually at the time, however the Universe had other ideas, and so I find myself writing about them all under one post, right now… Firstly the “bedroom tax“. It is not […]

Voyager to the final frontier

This is the tale of the two most intrepid explorers in our planet’s history. This is the Voyager story.

Oh, how Brand!
