Lol cats take over Gwyneth's school

Take a look at this flyer that the people at my daughter's school sent home with her. This is allegedly an institute of learning. If you can't read the bit in red it says "Wear your costume. There will have a costume parade."

Do you Believe in Reincarnation?

Since the Dalai Lama is in town, and I was sent a link to an interesting website, the title of the post popped into my head. The Buddhists believe that the new Lama is born when the old Lama dies, so they go looking for a child born at that time, and if they pass the tests, they anoint them as the new Lama.

Today I was sent a link to the site "The Death Report" by my friend Rhea. What this site does is to give you all the details of who died on the exact date of your birth, and who has died throughout the years on your birthday. So tying the 2 thoughts together, that would mean that I am the next incarnation of...

Harold Lloyd.

Well... ok... maybe I'm not a Hollywood action star who does my own stunts, but we do both wear glasses... coincidence??? ;)

Coming Home to Blighty

Yes, I'll be heading back to Blighty for a short trip in November. The plan is to get into Hadfield on the 10th, maybe get up to Driffield on the 13th, before heading down to London on the 14th, where I'm speaking at a conference on the 16th. Then, that night I'm going to head to Swindon for a couple of days before heading back to the states on the 18th...
