Trouser Semaphore

A new way to communicate: Trouser Semaphore.

The acquired skill known as Trouser Semaphore is swiftly gaining currency as the only way for people of quality to communicate in an age of rapidly escalating background noise levels. Typically, at the race track or at unexpectedly rumbustious parties, attempts to make oneself heard above the general hubbub can prove exasperating and, as often as not, utterly futile.

Within the space of a week, and with minimal amount of application, it is possible to gain a skill of incalculable worth.

Patio Culture

A site devoted to American suburban living in the '60's: Patio Culture.

Everything that was fun revolved around life on the patio. Fun and games. Friends and meat....red meat. Red meat and green salads. The patio wasn't just the center of suburban family life, it was a state of mind!

Hmmm... that doesn't sound too different than my current life.

The Clothespin Record Stands

Breaking news: Peg-man fails to break record.

A man who holds the record for having the most clothes pegs clipped to his face has just failed to break his own record. Garry 'Stretch' Turner was trying to clip more than 153 pegs to his face as the 2004 Guinness Book of Records was launched in Manchester.

Sadly, he only managed to clip 150 of the pegs to his face.

That is sad. Well, maybe next year...
