MoD to hold bearskin hat meeting
Bearskin-hatted guardsmen at this year's Trooping the Colour
The Ministry of Defence is to meet an animal rights group to discuss alternatives to the bearskin hats worn by guards at Buckingham Palace. I appreciate ! First, the poor animals, second it must be brain damaging to wear such a heavy mop on once head ! That gives me an idea, why not replace the fur by a deep brown mop ??
Slice of royal wedding cake sold
This cake was made for the Queen Mother's staff at Clarence House
A large slice of cake made to celebrate the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles has been sold for £1,000 at an auction house in Gloucestershire. A more than 20 year old piece of cake ! Wow ! I didn't know that cakes are like wine, they get better each year ! This piece must have an esquisite taste !
Leaking mushroom soup halts plane
Ryanair said the jar held "a vegetable oil/mushroom soup type substance"
A Ryanair plane was forced to land in Germany after a passenger had an allergic reaction to mushroom soup. The soup leaked onto the man from a jar in an overhead locker on a flight from Budapest to Dublin on Monday, the airline said.His neck reportedly swelled up and he struggled to breathe, forcing the plane to divert for emergency medical help. I always say, tomato soup is far better than mushroom soup and then it only looks like blood !
Letter lottery defines spam load
Choose the right first letter and you could get less junk e-mail
How much spam you get may depend on the first letter in your e-mail address, a study reveals.
The analysis, of more than 500 million junk messages, revealed those letters that get more junk than average. It found that e-mail addresses starting with an "A", "M" or "S" got more than 40% spam. By contrast those beginning with a "Q" or "Z" got about 20%. That's very interesting ! I have to think it over. What should I choose amongst these names ?

Cat Yoda has four ears
DON’T worry – you’re not seeing double.
This is Yoda – the FOUR-eared cat.
US couple Valerie and Ted Rock found the kitten with the extra set of ears two years ago and made it part of their family. Despite Yoda’s odd looks Valerie said his hearing is normal and vets have been left mystified by his appearance. Valerie said: “The vet had never seen anything like it before.” Isn't she a cutie ? How lovely my cats would look with four ears ! I am sure they would better listen to me !
