As a child I loved those word puzzles that would be in the annual that I got for Christmas and have loved playing with words and language since. Whilst in the USA back in 2008 I played around with a campaign bumper sticker and came up with: Continue reading
The Muppet show was always a highlight of the weekend TV for me when the children were small. This clip is from an episode that featured Mark Hammill fresh from his Luke Skywalker role, but strikes a chord for me as a lover of DooWap singing.

Jeb Bush came from a political family (you may have heard of his Dad and his brother, both of whom served, albeit with widely different standards). He seemed like a good administrator and I got the impression that my adopted second home state prospered with him in the chair.

Pretty stupid, but her opponent’s outrage was pathetic. Come on people, what about the real issues?
If this is the best that came be offered, Florida could be in for a rough time whichever way the vote goes.
