We don't yet know the precise role of this gene.If the BBC reported the arts or politics in such a slapdash manner there would be uproar, questions in the House of Commons and general carpeting of the editors but science it doesn't matter as long as they can twist something sensational out of it.

For the first time in ages we have had a weekend off. No decorating, no travelling to see family, no nights tripping the light fantastic in a marquee as the rain lashes down outside. So we took a leisurely bimble into King's Lynn, I think we had a successful trip into town, Si got himself a rather smart man bag for his stuff and will also be useful for the honeymoon and a couple of pairs of summer shoes. I also got shoes, a pair of summer sandals and these beauties above. At their full price £20 they would have been a bit too much to justify but at only £5 I can break them in (ha) around the house and stick them into the dressing up box waiting for just the right occasion to give them an airing!

The chap stood next to me had the most amazing camera set up. I don't think he took any pictures though, just hugged the camera
There wasn't a display by the Red Arrows this year but we did have a Hawk from 100 Sqn to look at.
And vintage bombers too.
No these ads just make me want to never try to the product.
The Kellogg's Bran Flakes advert with all the fake health fads - just eating a bowl of Kellogg's, a bit of fruit and drinking more water is not going to make you healthy: you have to stop eating crap and this ad is shit.
MFI - Arguing, horrible families - why would anyone want to associate themselves with that?
Orange Mobile Phone - Faux naive songs seemingly aimed at morons hate, hate, hate.

but they seem to make a happy couple and it keeps tabloid journalists happy with the innocent campness of it all.
Congratulations on the birth of their daughter and all but what were they thinking with the naming thing? "Princess Tiaamii." It's cruel the poor wee girl is going to get teased from the get go. It's also a form of self aggrandisement by the parents "arn't we special and a cut above the rest by being so original" instead it comes across as being uber chav and stupid. Poor kid at least she can change it when she grows up.

Scan Bran is the dwarf bread of slimming, it is exceptionally dry, tastes like plywood and can sap moisture out of anywhere, I've broken it up to see if it was possible to crumble it or whether that was just an urban myth and I could feel it wicking all the moisture from my finger tips. Our consultant swears by it, "look at so and so she eats lots of scan bran and she's managing to lose weight despite the pork pie habit." But she doesn't claim to eat it herself. It seems to work on the basis of: you're hungry, all you've got is scan bran but by the time you've managed to soften a small corner you've fallen asleep.

it's going to look like a posh Glastonbury by the dodgems so tomorrow I'm going to be scouring the shops of Lynn for gold lamé wellies.

Actually it would make a great drinking game - take a shot every time a cliché or a basic science error is made. Or perhaps not you'd be slaughtered within the first 5 minutes.

Our excuse for visiting was to find a bridesmaid dress for my niece. That happened yesterday, we went into Winchester then Southampton, my niece seems to have inherited my love of glitz and tack -

50 years old this year the inventiveness, the attention to detail, the parody are superb and probably one of the best summaries of Wagner you'll see in 6'52"

However I think that she's got every chance of doing well. So I didn't like her comedy show, I didn't find it very funny although plenty of
