Just had a lovely morning in the rain with CU-1. We were gonna do the painting thing, but then I remembered the stables at the London Equestrian Center (CU-1 liked Albert best I think–lots of fuzzy mane in the fac...Family,
The French have a wonderful knack for keeping it simple.
It’s nice when a blogger says something short and to the point:
I love this post by Chris, and because I can easily post a link to it, I shall;-)
As long as I’m messing about with the video capture on the ixus, one of the nicest things (well, one of many many nice things, but one that stands out in a particular way) about having a young child is the way the...Family,
I mention CU-1’s adventures on swings in an earlier post. If you read this blog on your mobile phone (or indeed just download stuff via the web and then copy it over), you’ll be able to see very bad Dad In Action ...Family,
Just got this from Demon, my ISP of choice for a number of years:
First things first–If you’re one of the many people who come here from A List Apart please read this.
I’ve just noticed the access logs filling up with calls to “permalinker”–this is a pretty major oops as I’ve always believed URIs should be permanent.
I had so many bits, bobs and backups tied into my blogging engine that it was taking me forever to migrate safely to Movable Type. A negative side-effect of running what was a truly nasty hack in the first place w...
The stuff that I think several people out there get a kick out of reading on Donkey tends to form in my brain like scum on pot of soaking chickpeas. When I first started posting, the system was so fast that it cov...

May is when all the councils reorganize. Mayors get elected, committees too, and in the reorganization of East Devon’s planning arm–The Development Control Committee–disaster struck!
Have just struggled through another hummaniteinenglish.com translation. A very interesting piece about the effect on left-wing parties of forgetting one’s left wing. I worry a bit, the French is pretty pompous and...
Pantograph is a lovely word:-) Thank you Gail
From this piece (on bbc.co.uk)
Have just returned from voting.
So the England team’s practice sessions are being spied upon by “Zoom lenses hidden in golf carts” and celebrities sunning sans clothes are violated by zoom lenses that “literally reach in and pull the image out”.
Just met some really nice people at a studio in the city.
So Billy and I went to this Alexander McQueen bash last Thursday night and drank way too much champagne and then Billy raised his paddle and bought Madonna’s tights…
So I’m still digging around the advertising industry looking to see if I have an idea or not…
I love these people. The following from http:// www.livejournal.com/users/charlotteu/friends
Now this is just silly ;-)
Donkeyontheedge is all about internet citizenship.
All in all, if B+M want to do the MT thing full time, they have to charge. It’s always a sting when something you’ve used for free goes paying, but in their case there really isn’t any other way.
Did my first translation for L’Humanité in English last night.
(See earlier post re auctioning a vanity spot on educational charity The Lecture List to raise funds for hosting) raised a whopping 6 pennies (sixpence?) from a staggering two (2) bids…
Wireless activists are using bicycles with wireless internet access to allow visitors to the Stop Bush website to post messages on the streets and pavements of New York City. The cycles have an on-board chalk-spra...
You know you want to :-)
Hello List, just thought I’d spam you guys with a site I’ve just launched for an educational charity that lists lectures, get-togethers and happenings nationwide.
Jed writes about life as a Devon councillor
The trucking of illegal immigrants into the U.S. leads to prison at a small, liberal arts lock-up. There, we meet Jones, the huge, black king of the penitentiary and his white slave warden, Farrington. Eventually,...
In cheap black suits and unpolished DMs sit at a reception desk.

The guy (an HP employee) replied “what’s Postscript?” this is like a baker not knowing about flour, a children’s television producer not having watched “Sesame Street” or the president not knowing the constitut...In Dug's really old stuff,
What is the Dana Centre? I wondered, speculating as to whether it might be a musical venue commemorating the life and times of Ireland’s first Eurovision winner in 1970. Or a Bulgarian cultural centre? In fact i...
