The link below is to an article that takes a look at some names (and the story behind the names) that writers have given to their pets.
The link below is to a very brief article outlining a new practice on the Internet – bp;dr – which simply means, ‘behind paywall, didn’t read.’
I have started to read ‘Terrorism and the Illuminati – A Three Thousand Year History,’ by David Livingstone. I haven’t read a lot as of yet, but it appears to be a book full of conspiracy theories about a secret society (the Illuminati) that are behind world events. Not being a believer in such a theory I am not sure just how much of this book I’ll be able to stomach, but having only read the introduction at this point I’ll try and keep myself restrained from speculating too much on the book. I do have to say that what I have read in the introduction had me thinking ‘is this for real?’ I don’t mean that in the sense of being convinced, but rather in the sense of ‘can anyone really believe this?’
With the death of Osama Bin Laden recently and the various conspiracy theories that have surfaced as a result, this sort of book will probably be enjoying a wider audience at the moment. If conspiracy theories interest you, then this book may very well be of interest to you. There are various associated links below.
There is an online version at the book’s website:
You can also find the book at Scribd:
If you prefer to buy a copy at Amazon, it is available at:
Today’s suggestion is about getting behind the ‘clown doctors.’ Who are these ‘doctors?’ These are the people who seek to bring humour to the depressing wards of hospitals, especially for children.
Clown Doctors – a good idea that helps kids in hospital.

A response to reading ‘365 Ways to Change the World,’ by Michael Norton
Today’s suggestion for changing the world is to form a ‘Food not Bombs’ group. The theory behind such a group is to gather food from various sources (fresh vegetables running out of shelf life, etc) and to seek to feed the local hungry people – such as the homeless, poor, etc.
These groups also protest against war.
This suggestion is also not for me – but not because I don’t like the idea. It is a great idea and one others may like to pursue. Visit the web site below for more information:
