Vote Earth - the big switch off

By Trash Talk on Mar 27, 09 02:14 PM

Waste and recycling is fundamentally tied up in the issue of global warming and on March 28 you can VOTE EARTH by switching off your lights off for one hour, between 8.30-9.30pm.

One billion people are expected to join in.


IT'S been perhaps the most controversial off-season to date, but in just a matter of days the 2009 Formula 1 season will roar into action.

And the best thing about it is that this year - unlike any we've had in well over a decade - nobody really knows how it is going to turn out until the cars hit the track in Melbourne on Sunday.

Newspapers, TV and specialist magazines have had field day of late, with rule changes, reversed rule changes, struggling McLaren's and a major spanner in the works in the form of a certain Ross Brawn and his new racing team.

It's A Wonderful Life...

As weeks go, the last one was a turkey of gargantuan proportions, able to trot for miles before laying its enormous egg.

It's amazing how many interesting people I come into contact with on a daily basis and also how many people crop up from the past... Sarah was asking me on the phone if I wanted to upgrade our office photocopier when I discovered she had another job which was rather unusual. She is a fire-eater...

Someone to watch over me

I have often extolled, through the auspices of this blog, the advantages of being single. Never having to hide a ridiculously expensive purchase in the bowels of the wardrobe, for example, to be brought out at a later date and dismissed with a "What, this old thing? Had it for years darling," throw away remark in response to the quizzical face of one's husband. A Twitter friend however has a different method. She buys a new dress that bears a remarkable similarity to the other three in her wardrobe in order to confuse her spouse.

Fancy a quick swish

I am a bloke who knows when it is time to buy new clothes once the old ones have holes in them.

But I am aware that some people have clothes that they could donate to others without dying of embarrassment.

If you are one of these people then SWISHING could be for you.

Ben-Spies-PI-smaller.jpgBEN Spies took another runaway victory in Race Two at Losail.

The Yamaha pilot 'did a Bayliss' and steamed off into the lead just six laps in, gapping the opposition to ride to an easy win.

In what was almost a carbon copy of this morning's first race, the American rookie never looked under pressure, and crossed the line once again ahead of Noriyuki Haga and Max Biaggi in second and third spots respectively. Haga, however, still leads the championship

eugene-losail-action-small.jpg EUGENE Laverty has taken his maiden World Supersport win at a dramatic race at Losail.

The Durham-based Irishman pipped reigning champ Andrew Pitt over the line by 0.063secs in a battle of sheer straight-line speed.

And the shy rider immediately dedicated his win to pal Craig Jones.
