good morning spambots!

Anyone posting comments to this blog will now find they have to undergo a word verification test before they can publish their posts. It doesn't hurt, I promise. Think of it as being like a trip to the optician's where you have to read all that stuff off the wall, only easier, and without that weird glaucoma test where they puff air into your eye. It's all just to prove you're not a computer. A sort of rudimentary Turing test, if you like, though without all that unpleasant business about gross indecency and topping yourself by eating poisoned apples.

I always kept my word verificatia thang, to avoid comments like those 2 last messages after your rugby post.
seems to have done the trick so far.

Yeah, a few spammy ones were starting to get through. I mean, there's only so much herbal Viagra I can eat.

Dave - how are your cats?

Well I assume you saw my earlier post on the subject.

To recap, they are both good, in that they are alive, and bad, in that they are different cats to the original ones.

And as for my sheets, well: picture a really enormous rectangular pappadom. Oily, crisp and smelling of curry.
