Ring of Secrecy

El País has an infographic of Fidel Castro’s three recent operations. Apparently Castro now has an artificial anus after nearly shitting himself to death.

Signs of the Times

At the shop I noticed one of the tabloids has printed a shock provo horror picture on its front cover of Steve Staunton being attended by a security guard with a logo on his jacket commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Hunger Strikes.

Sinn Fein later issued a statement denying any involvement with Steve Staunton.

Anniversary celebrations of this type -25th, 30th, 50th- have always struck me as silly. What makes 25 more important or interesting than 24 or 26? The fact that it’s a multiple of 5? Well then, what makes 5 more important or interesting than 3? Someone explain, please. Ideally a numerologist or a tarot card reader.

Reds Above The Beds

I am told that the presence of ladybirds in one’s garden is very good, since the colourful creatures have a healthy appetite for aphids that might otherwise feast upon tender plants. Here is one, spotted, today.
