Word of the day


Dandizette – a woman who gives exaggerated attention to personal appearance; a female dandy; one who elevates aesthetics to a living religion;  a woman who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of self.

Beautifying the blogosphere


The power of . . .


Mike Hosking encouraged listeners to watch this video in which Richard Hammond explains what happened when he was in a coma.

Saturday’s soapbox


Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

Punishment is not for revenge but to lessen crime and reform the criminal. Elizabeth Fry
