Happy St George's Day, everyone! You don't have to be English to celebrate - he's also patron saint of Georgia, of course. Moscow, too. Oh, and Malta and Ethiopia. And Greece and Portugal and Palestine. And Slovenia. And Aragon and Catalonia and Bavaria and Bulgaria. And anyone on a horse or who makes saddles. Or owns a farm or works in a field, shepherds included. Also, butchers, archers and armourers. And, um, well, anyone with herpes. Or leprosy or syphilis. Or plague or, actually, any other skin disease. Should be quite a party!

Mr Mullet? Mr Mullet is who has denied ordering hair cutting attacks? You couldn't make this stuff up. Could you?

I was impressed by the "prize-winning light bulb" that had "triumphed in the Bright Tomorrow competition". I do have to admit to a little disappointment on learning that it was "the only entrant for the competition" - something similar is alleged of me whenever I pick the "You have won second prize in a beauty contest" card in Monopoly.

One other thing Tesco's have got wrong. I went into my local one on Friday. A bottle of wine, labelled as a 'price drop'...from £7.79 to £8.10!!!! Every little helps, but not with basic maths it would seem!
