After lolling about in the sunshine this afternoon I read the news on the net...
A man in China cut his own leg off with a kitchen knife and a saw because he couldn't afford an operation to remove it properly...the story has caused an outcry among the Chinese and a surgeon has stepped forward to take off his other leg...he has a blood disease which affects the veins...free of all charges.
A couple were arrested in America for child neglect when four children were found living in conditions of squalor along with pit-bull dogs and snakes. The so-called Father used to torment the children with the snakes and beat his dogs...
The Madeline McCann story goes on...a new photo-fit picture has been published of a man the police want to question and the Portuguese are....according to the news report...simply not interested. One of the many rather scathing comments which followed that news item was about a little Gipsy girl who also vanished at around the same time...her disappearance has never been formally investigated.
Then there was an item about places people have lost their mobile 'phones...you don't want to know.
An Elephant killed an experienced zoo-keeper of thirty years standing...my first thought was the Elephant was probably fed-up to the back teeth with being in a zoo...
Katie Price aka Jordan...she of the big bosoms...has lambasted her ex...Peter Andre...for ruining her career...the temptation is to ask...what career would that be...
And two men who shot two Guards in our town thirty years ago during a robbery have been quietly released from prison...they'd originally been sentenced to death but it was commuted...actually one was sentenced to penal servitude...but that was changed to plain prison.
A man was caught by Police in England cycling down a Motorway...on an ordinary pushbike, while cars and lorries shot past him at seventy miles an hour...they told him it wasn't a good idea. He said he'd take the train home instead.
The daily news isn't awfully cheery when you think about it...most seems to concern people who really ought not to be at large in the community...
