A man may esteem himself happy when that which is his food is also his medicine…(or not, in this week’s case)

Third time I’ve tried to do this post – die, Firefox, die! Normally I have no problems with the browser, but today I have no patience either so Grumpy has taken over the airwaves, so to speak. Anyway, this week…

1) I’ve been preparing a training program on first aid for work, and browsing around the net looking for picture instructions because I’m too lazy to photocopy anything. Anyway, much to my distaste I found these – Bacon Strip Bandages, bandaids done up to look like bacon. A touch of the macabre here – you always hear how the closest thing to the flesh of a man is the flesh of a pig, well now it’s TRUE, folks! Possibly more worrying is that these babies come from the online store of a US organic garden and vegetable co-op, and this is presumably what passes for kitsch humor among tree-huggers these days…

2) I found a very bizarre yet well-thought-out blog post philosophizing over the truth of the old rumor “Every time you masturbate God kills a kitten.” I’ve said many times that statistics can be used to prove any damn thing you want – I guess the Good Reverend’s post on Cat Killing is case in point…

3) I’ve been teaching older colleagues how to blog. Chanelling my inner preschool teachers. “Don’t click that. Just wait one minute. Don’t hit enter. No, DON’T hit enter.”…etc. Anyway, as I couldn’t face the blank stares and possible tears that might hit when we got to RSS feeds, I found this cute little video “RSS in Plain English” on Youtube – fun, easy, and best of all uses GoogleReader as an example, which I like. Enjoy – and don’t complain the Liberry don’t never learn you nuthin!

  2. Loved the vid, I didn’t realise you could get an RSS feed on Google so I just might do that…

    Also loved the housemate notes, having lived with nutters right through, I REALLY enjoyed that!
