Maybe it’s just me….
I’ve been looking after my youngest daughter (one year old) all day today and we had a great day on our own!

But for some inexplicable reason I ended up in tears, sobbing as I sat on a seat in the bathroom as she played in her bath.

Maybe it was her unconstrained glee at splashing so much that the whole bathroom ended up soaked. Maybe it was the complete trust and optimisim in her eyes which touched a nerve in my own psyche…reminded me of the small child inside of me.

Maybe it was just the feeling of loving someone so much….so much more than myself, so completely and utterly that I forgot myself……

Maybe I cried because of the sadness of holding onto myself so much of the time, protecting myself……maybe I was jealous?

Google – good or bad?

Google – good or bad?
It does worry me a bit the prominence given to blogs by Google. I get a lot of searches for combinations of words in my blog (biker+ babes seems a favourite) which must send some people away very disappointed!

While it’s nice to get the hits the fact that my blog comes very high up in Google for more serious searches isn’t such a good thing. If it winds up with people genuinely looking for information being disappointed then that reflects badly on Google and on my blog.

Hurrah! For someone who at

Hurrah!
For someone who at times lives on red wine, french bread and cheese this is good news:

(AP) — Researchers say they have discovered the key component in red wine that explains the so-called French Paradox, or the way the French can eat lots of cheese, buttery sauces and other rich foods and still suffer less heart disease than Americans.

Darwinism Under Attack For the

Darwinism Under Attack
For the vast majority of scientists, evolution through natural means is as much a fact as the earth’s revolution around the sun. Yet a small but vocal number of biologists, chemists, philosophers, and mathematicians are determined to change that view. They believe that an intelligent agent –�most rigorously avoid the word “God” –�has guided the earth’s history, and that scientific research can prove its existence. While most scientists are quick to dismiss the idea as religion cloaked in academic jargon, advocates of the concept, known as intelligent design, are making inroads into academe, thanks to their unconventional approach, sophisticated arguments, and scholarly credentials.
