Just received an email to say my order for season 3 of Battlestar Galactica is now on it's way. I know I'm gonna sound like a Sci-Fi Geek but who cares- I'm so excited! LOL

Really enjoying Heroes as well, now it has arrived on BBC2.

Sunshine & Swimming

Looks like the sun has decided to put in an appearance this week. Welcome back- it's been a while!

I think also I may be able to restart swimming lessons with Little Lad in September. They had severe problems with the pool they were using back in December last year. After a couple of false starts, where the pool was OK for a couple of weeks then out of action for several, it seems all is up and running. Can't wait to get back in the water with him. Not so sure about the early starts on a Saturday though.

Assult with a Sausage!

Just heard this on the radio so had to check it out.

A boy of 12 has appeared in court today, charged with assulting a man with a cocktail sausage. Apparently the "victim" thought he had been hit with a stone. Can't he tell the difference? One is rather crunchy, the other tastes of pork.

The child's mother said the court action was an "utter joke." but accepted her son should receive some type of reprimand. Manchester Police and the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) are now reviewing the case after the judge questioned their decision to bring it before the courts.

I'm just pleased to know that crime levels are now so low that all the police have to worry about is underage food fights. Don't even get me started on how much tax payer money this has all cost.

Time to Think

Let's just take a moment to consider what we can all learn from getting a bunch of naked people to stand in front of a Swiss glacier.

Life on Mars

So a US network is to remake the BBC's excellent 1970's set Life on Mars.

Apparently the original was too "British" and the accents too difficult for an American audience.

The lead roles are therefore to be recast so US viewers can better understand and identify.

Irish actors Jason O'Mara and Colm Meaney have been cast.

How does that work then? Is a strong Irish accent easier to understand?

Besides I always thought the US already had a 70's cop series: Starsky and Hutch. LOL

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Of all the Harry Potter films I've seen, this will be the fifth. LOL

Having recently re-read the book prior to seeing the film, I'm convinced the big fight towards the end looked far better at the cinema than it ever did in my mind. Don't know why- it's usually the other way round, with the cinema version being a kind of let-down but not this time.

Time for Tea

Apparently while filming in Wales for the new Doctor Who, Kylie Minogue was mistaken for a hotel waitress by a couple of tourists. They wanted to know if they were too late for afternoon Tea.

They should be so lucky. Lucky, lucky, lucky. LOL
