Today is a ‘leap day”. An extra day in the year so our seasons don’t slip.

Fascinating things leap years. Did you know that 2000 was a leap year, but 2100 won’t be? If a year is divisible by 100, it is only a leap year if it is also divisible by 400.

And according to Wikipedia (not that you should believe everything you read on the internet!):

“In the Islamic calendar, leap months are not used. They are forbidden by the Qur’an,”

Anyway… I was thinking, maybe a leap day should be a Public Holiday? I mean if, we have this extra day in the year, why should we spend it working?  As far as I know, my salary hasn’t increased by an extra day this year. What am I doing at work?

Maybe I’ll sneak off early.

willow

If you haven’t already met willow, this is she.

And she is not feeling very well at the moment.

She had a temperature, runny poo and no appetite yesterday, so she spent the night at Gladesille Vet Hospital

We will hopefully be picking her up tonight. I wonder how much it will cost….?





Do you Zazz?

Every morning when I get to work I check out what’s on Zazz.

Every afternoon I check out whats on COTD.

I have never purchased anything, but I love to keep an eye out for bargains.

Anu picked up a scorcher of a Catch yesterday! A widescreen LCD! Well done sir.





Blogging

27 02 2008

Ok…. so… here we go again.

Why blog? I need a reason.

I considered quitting – I really did.

But some part of me obviously wants to continue.

Changing to wordpress has renewed my energy – enough for another burst. Another shot at the title. Whatever that means.

To keep me going I need some new topics to blog on. Obviously there will be the favourites:

x Beer

x Coffee

x God

But I want to throw in a bit more:

x Geography – I love geography but I haven’t thought about it since high school

x Words – I like words – I wish my job allowed me to use them more

x Maths – by request of D Miers

x Work

x Other stuff

I want to blog because I want to write stuff. Not necessarily stuff that will appeal to you readers out there, but stuff that appeals to me.

Does that make sense? Is that a reason to blog? Will that keep me going this time?

We’ll see.
