While I’m hoping the content of The Times won’t make a similar shift from broadsheet to tabloid, this week’s NTK highlighted that The Guardian, of all newspapers, has recently been advocating the traditionally Neo-Conservative policy of regime change.

I’ve grown rather sceptical about attending seminars lately as often about half way through I find myself thinking that the time might be better spent reading the associated paper instead! However I am rather tempted to attend the following:

While I’m normally quite a cynic when it comes to “miracle cures” Ed made me this fantastic drink which really did make me feel substantially better after a whole pint of it! Cheers, mate!
The rest of that site is pretty interesting too. Obviously this being the Internet one can’t take it as being 100% true and accurate, but the stuff on buying a computer isn’t bad (although quite dated now). And the drink was very good! 🙂
