Absolutely spot on.

I found this whilst searching for something similar but not (if you see what I mean)

Support From Others

Don’t tell me that you understand.
Don’t tell me that you know.
Don’t tell me that I will survive,
How I will surely grow.
Don’t come at me with answers
That can only come from me.
Don’t tell me how my grief will pass,
That I will soon be free.
Accept me in my ups and downs.
I need someone to share.
Just hold my hand and let me cry
And say, “My friend, I care.”

Oh how I wish I'd seen this when I needed it. It's one of those things that just makes you want to stand up and shout, 'YES! That's exactly how I feel.'

And at least now I know where to find it if I ever do need it again.

David Blaine, boo hoo.

Stuntman Blaine fails to break record

He didn't manage to hold his breath for 9 minutes. Shame. Mind you I LOVED this quote from the man himself.

"I am humbled so much by the support of everybody from New York City and from all over the world. This was a very difficult week, but you made it fly by with your strong spirit and your energy. I thank you all and I love you all."

A difficult week? Honestly, the mind boggles. The man's a bloody mentalist. Though, frankly, not quite enough of a mentalist to do this in London - not after the last time.


Hmmm, interesssting...

BBC NEWS | England | Wiltshire | Proposals to recreate Stonehenge

I'm wavering over whether or not I think this is a good thing. On the face of it, it sounds like a jolly good idea. But the cynic in me can't help thinking that it's just a way of creating a new 'amusement' park with a vague nod to history. And no doubt raking in vast amounts of cash.
