Treats in the post!

What goodies were waiting in the mailbox!

I got a wodge of sudoku & cryptic crosswords (all hail the great Crosaire) - they've been specially treated to self-destruct if I go near them during writing time. I don't understand all the ins and outs, but it would be like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters, just bad. Thanks Mike!

AND as if that wasn't enough, I also got a way-cool pack for stargazing. It's got a wall chart and a star book but the coolest thing of all is the twirling star finder planisphere! This also has a built-in système to stop me using it during the day. Can't wait for it to get dark. Thank you Shona!

So as a treat, here's some Bill Hicks to bring a smile. Shona - I give you the waffle waitress asking one of life's great questions: 'What you readin' for?'. Mike - Bill didn't do much on financial regulation, but there is a nice piece on marketing.

Have a lovely weekend :)

Yeah, throw all the other rubbish out. The planisphere (or planigram as I usually call it, will explain at a later date) is the only worthwhile item. enjoy

I'm learning loads from the little book! I like the name planigram (kinda like sedagive) - it took me a while to get used to it, though you'd think it'd be super easy for someone who doesn't see in 3D. Sigh!
Found this site where you plug in latitude and longitude and it shows you what should be on the horizon...
