Crop Circles are SO 2007!
There were strange goings on at the farm today when a flock of sheep made their own version of a crop circle. About 100 of the woolly creatures formed an orderly ring - baffling the farmer and passers-by.
Farm manager at Herefordshire College of Technology, Dan Seaborne, said: "I just think they've been fed with dry feed in that shape - you can get snacker feeders now and you tow behind a quad and it drops pellets on the ground.
"I would imagine that's what's happened."
He added: "I think there was a chap in Yorkshire who spelled out 'will you marry me' to his girlfriend in sheep by putting feed down."
( leave it to the Welsh )!

The Art of Napping, Demonstrated by Bill Clinton
Here's Bill fighting off the sandman during a Martin Luther King tribute speech yesterday.
You thought your clients were bad?
I don't know how these poor women manage to sell this crap day after day! This one has a meltdown brought on by one "Diane in Missouri" and her "baby dog, Abby" who "watches all the time!"
Why do I immediately picture Diane and Abby sitting on a couch in a mobile home somewhere in Missouri?

Steve Jobs: "People Don't Read Anymore."
Kindle : Electronic Paper that Uses Ink
Utilizing a new high-resolution display technology called electronic paper, Kindle provides a crisp black-and-white screen that resembles the appearance and readability of printed paper. The screen works using ink, just like books and newspapers, but displays the ink particles electronically. It reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, eliminating the glare associated with other electronic displays. As a result, Kindle can be read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room.The screen never gets hot so you can comfortably read as long as you like.

Tom Cruise is a Whacko
I was going to call this post "Scientologists are Whackos" but I believe that Tom is so crazy that he may be giving Scientology a bad name.
If the video is gone, it's because YouTube can't keep it live for long.
Tom's eyes are so creepy and intense. Apparently, scientology is the authority on the mind, on addictions and mental illness. Tom also claims that only he and the scientologists can unite cultures. I *did* not know that!

It was a friendship that could inspire a Disney movie. Oscar the dog and his best friend, Arthur the cat, were inseparable in life. So, when 17-year-old moggy Arthur died, Oscar was left inconsolable. Their owners, Robert and Mavis Bell, buried Arthur in the garden.
But Oscar's love for his friend would not die – and during the night, he pulled the cat from his grave, carried him inside, laid him in the basket they used to share and gently cleaned him up. Which is one of those things that's heartwarming when an animal does it, but kind of creepy when a human does the same.
Mr Bell found the pair curled up together in the basket. He said: 'Oscar had watched me bury Arthur. They had been inseparable.'
Arthur is now buried in a secure grave in the garden at the Bells' home in Wigan and Oscar has a new playmate kitten called Limpet.
'He's already very protective of her,' Mrs Bell said.
