Sticky Saturday

Mutterings continued.

Did the usual grocery shopping this morning and then took a trip to WA Salvage and Spotlight for props. Some success but I'm still looking for jugs and mugs. I bought some Playdough for modelling things out of. I love the smell of Playdough! I also love the smell of freshly sharpened pencils.

Friend Fiona wrote in her blog about a very useful forum called Booksleuth. "Is there a special book that you read, or perhaps had read to you, at some point in your life but you can't remember the author and title? Perhaps you know the plot, or a character, or maybe even what the front cover looks like. BookSleuth is here to help you find that book!" I posted a query about a book I remember from my childhood (this was before the introduction of moveable type).

Love this: "A German zoo's plans to tempt its gay penguins to go straight by importing more females has been declared a failure.

The female penguins were flown in especially from Sweden in an effort to encourage the Humboldt penguins at the Bremerhaven Zoo to reproduce.

But the six homosexual penguins showed no interest in their new female companions and remained faithful to each other.

Zoo Director Heike Kueck said: "The relationships were apparently too strong."

A keeper confirmed that the male couples had adopted rocks which they were guarding like eggs in their caves.

The zoo has said that it will try again in Spring 2006, because the penguins are an endangered species and need to be encouraged to breed."

Scunthorpe United is back on top of the League Two table. Yay! Go the Iron!
