Olympic Ceremonies.

The opening ceremony in China was indeed spectacular. Thousands of toned youths performing in perfect unison. Colour, style and lavish entertainment. A pyrotechnic extravaganza and a  huge stadium of unique design.

But the world has seen nothing yet. Just wait for the opening ceremony for the Olympics in Britain.

The world will be staggered to watch a myriad of obese young people wobbling around in an unfinished stadium and waving, with no discernable coordination, flags and sparklers.

It will not be a hard act to follow.

Changing Appearances.

This is a picture of me and as you can see, I am so good looking that nothing can be done to improve me. I know however, that lesser mortals resort to using cosmetics to make themselves look younger.
Now it seems that a cosmetics company may be fined for changing a person's appearance.
The case in question is one of making darker lighter, but it could equally be applicable to making older younger.
What a picky place the world has become.

Live Writer

I'm afraid this is going to be a very dull post. I am only testing the link to see whether Windows Live Writer will get this post to my blog. herts11

My chicken's have come home to roost. There are interesting possibilities with this program.

Unwise Interference.

I intervened in the natural order of things this morning and the result was not a happy one.
A young blackbird, only days out of the nest, was attacked by a female sparrow hawk in my presence. I ran at them to try to scare off the attacker, but I was too late, the fledgling's neck had been broken.
The hawk flew away and did not return. The body, a meal in waiting, lay there in the grass unused, a wasted resource. The sparrow hawk would have to kill again to feed. The balance of nature had been disturbed and there was no benefit.
