"The squirrel has become a bit of a legend among staff and pupils at the school. He makes an appearance most days and we always look forward to seeing him. We don't think he is a mutant squirrel, but he may have had a mishap around the school. The old building where we have seen him nipping in and out is a bit of a graveyard for computer printers. He may have found some printer toners in there."

Well actually it isn't my actual birthday, as that was last month.
No, what I mean is, it's two years today that I started on this blog site.
When I read your blogs you really have cheered me up.

So the husband went to his doctor and told him that he and his wife did not want any more children.
The doctor told him there was a procedure called a vasectomy but it was expensive. So, he explained that there was a less costly alternative.
The husband was to go home, get a fire-cracker, light it,put it in a beer can and hold it up to his ear and count to ten.
The husband said to the doctor:
"B'jayzus, I may not be the most smartest man in the world, but I don't see how putting a fire-cracker in a can next to my ear is going to help me with my problem."
"Trust me, it will do the job." Said the doctor.
So the man went home,put a fire-cracker in a beer can, held it up to his ear and began to count:
at which point he paused, and placed the can between his legs so he could continue counting on his other hand.
This procedure also works in New Zealand, Tasmania and several suburbs in Brisbane.

Well, so much for seeing the brightest moon last night.
I saw .........Absolutely nothing.
It was raining that hard and the sky was so overcast, I could not see the moon at all!
I have never been so disappointed in my life. You probably know by now how much I love the planets and I was so looking forward to seeing this spectacular sight.
Today, Saturday, there's a thick mist so no chance......again.
Typical, ain't it???

It was thought to be extinct but luckily it was spotted in Vietnam's Tung Vai commune along the cruise border.
It is of a Tonkin snub-nosed monkey, which naturally has a narrow, upturned nose and full pink lips.
It is believed to be of an adult monkey, of which there is only about 20, and there has only been sightings of about 2-3 infants.
This photograph was taken in April 2008.
The reason for their near extinction is believed to be because of bush meat hunting and demand for parts of the animal for traditional medicine.
It would be such a shame if they were hunted to extinction, wouldn't it?

The tree was meant to be the centrepiece of festive celebrations at Peterlees Castle Dene.
It was put up and decorated with the usual coloured lights and was switched on by pop star Natasha Hamilton from the girl band 'Atomic Kitten.' She also performed a string of hits in front of the tree.
Well, I don't know why they are moaning.....do you?
