Amusing Musings

Mutterings continued.

From the Guardian's Culture Vulture: "So the Da Vinci Code trial has finally creaked its way to a conclusion, and the nation - nay, the world - breathes a collective sigh of indifference."

From the Daily Telegraph: "The next most popular Australian program, news and current affairs aside, was The Biggest Loser.

The 1.4 million of you who tuned in may think it is inspirational television, but it is merely a chance to see grossly overweight people complete tasks like circus animals on the verge of a heart attack."

Yet another reason to love Scotland: "The Scottish village of Firhall, on the outskirts of Nairn on the Moray Firth, is spotless and smart, a cluster of detached houses overlooking a lake. There is no fence between me and the deep water, and nothing to divide one garden from the next. There are no skateboards here, either. No footballs. No noise. It takes a while, but the penny drops: Firhall is the first and only village in Britain from which children are banned, and it shows."
