Image Powered by sunlight and sweat/pedal, this new ‘bike’ has been launched in CA. It is classified as a bike but has headlights and taillights. It has a top speed of 20mph on battery power; 30mph if assisted by pedal power. I think it is quite a good idea though I still wouldn’t ride it on the roads around here.  (Couldn’t find what ELF stands for so I made it up.)


Image “Mother Defends Breastfeeding Her Baby During Graduation”  I was listening to CNN, well I had it on in the background when the ‘reporter’ introduced a piece about this mother breastfeeding her baby during graduation. I was actually quite disgusted with his tone. He was determined to make an issue of it, trying to make out that she should not have done it; that it was offensive. They had three ‘guests’ who offered their opinions – all positive – and he had to admit that, well maybe it wasn’t so bad after all. Hah! Good for her.

Image My brother sent me a picture … just because. It is really quite pretty. Thanks Richard.

Image British comedian and actor Rik Mayall has died aged 56. So funny in The Young Ones, Black Adder, The New Statesman. Edmondson, Mayall’s writing partner, commented, “There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. …. And now he’s died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.”
