The stadium is plunged into darkness and the video wall starts playing a clip from the 'The Song Remains The Same' tour in 1973...
'Good Times Bad Times'
Kicking off the show with the first track from their first album the band waste no time in setting out their stall. These guys mean business.
The band slide straight into this slower, bluesy number punctuated with fragments of harsh electric guitar from Page.
This is the first time that Plant interacts with the crowd. The audience sing along to the "ah-ahs" before Page punches out this song's killer riff
'In My Time Of Dying'
This song has it all, and was my highpoint. It's hard to express how emotional it was to hear this song being played live by this band. I'm crying.
'For Your Life'
Plant wishes everyone "good evening" before leading us into the live debut of this track. Perhaps one of the most accomplished and rounded of all their renditions this evening. By now no-one is expecting any less.
'Trampled Under Foot'
Plant announces how this recording was an attempt to emulate Robert Johnson's 'Terraplane Blues' by its liberal use of automotive metaphors.
'Nobody's Fault But Mine'
The huge screen fills the backdrop in the O2 Arena, playing rapid monochrome and colour images - quite spectacular.
JPJ demonstrates his keyboard skills and opens with the haunting phased piano that runs through this epic track
'Since I've Been Loving You'
An epic version....very bluesy with Page's signature violin bow making an appearance.
'Dazed And Confused'
A nostalgic rendering at the end of which had Plant announcing, "On guitar, Jimmy Page", just as he did in Madison Square Garden in the 1973.
'Stairway To Heaven'
"Ahmet, we did it!" was the simple statement that Plant used to capture the emotional high the band had reached by this point
'The Song Remains The Same'
Page continues to dazzle by keeping with his Gibson EDS-1275. There are no clichés here. This is the real deal.
'Misty Mountain Hop'
Plant gives thanks to Jason. Not a single fan could be disappointed with the performance he gave.
Somehow they raise the bar again with this landmark work. Plant declares "We've got people from 50 countries here and this is the 51st". Page strikes the riff and the sound becomes a rolling wave that lifts and carries twenty thousand fans to a higher consciousness.
'Whole Lotta Love'
The guys leave but of course they return for their first encore. After this homage to Willie Dixon, Plant announces "Thanks to everybody. Thanks Ahmet Ertegun, this one is for Ahmet Ertegun as we remember the days when Atlantic Records was the best label on the planet!"
'Rock And Roll'
With the whole arena now on their feet, the band rap up the show with this rousing and upbeat number

Benjie Telleron - AHN News Writer
Baden, Austria (AHN) -
Two thieves who ran off with a handbag from a woman waiting for a train ride in Baden might end up as the biggest joke in the underworld once they find out that their loot contained nothing but a dead rabbit. According to Hilda Morgenstein, 42, she was waiting for a train ride with her daughter which would take them to the countryside where she intends to bury her pet rabbit when the muggers attacked. "They saved us the trip," a shocked but elated Morgenstein said. "I told my daughter they were angels and were taking bunny to a better place." Although nothing valuable was lost in the unusual heist, police are still conducting search for the pair and the remains of the bunny.

I'm particulary taken by the picture of Jon that was done using the "full of stains" kit. I'm not sure what this says about him but it made me smile all the same!

Had a flying visit back home and managed to catch up with most everyone for at least a couple of hours each. In between some mad dashes around the country we managed to see the Lancaster Bomber flying over "the show" and also the Montague's Harriers that have been breeding out in the fens. No pics I'm afraid but we stopped for tea at Evedon and I snapped some nice pics in the gardens.

The offender could also be charged for throwing dangerous items at a sporting event which could lead to four years imprisonment.
Despite injury and shock, the rabbit survived and has now been adopted.

If the difference is the weather then it is difference worth celebrating. One week in St Aulaye in the Perigord region of France was probably too short but we still managed a few site seeing trips to Bourdeilles, Brantôme, Bordeaux, the caves at Lascaux and the Dune de Pyla.
La dernière chose. Je voudrais remercier Gerard et Liliane. Vous étiez très aimable pour nous rencontrer en Saint Aulaye. Merci pour le repas, le logement et votre hospitalité!

It was fantastic!
Having been (only once) to the British Grand Prix at Silverstone it was difficult not to be impressed by the high level of organisation and diversity that Goodwood offers.
The cars basically run twice a day up the hill in batches of 10-15 cars roughly grouped by era or formula. Missing your favourite car is thereforefore unlikely and the chances of seeing all the cars are favourable. Knowing this, it is then possible to fully explore the pits and get as close to the cars as physically possible, talk to the owners/mechanics and hunt for some famous faces. Alternatively a longish walk up the hill takes you through the forest rally stage to the top paddock perhaps a chance meeting with Colin Mcrae or Petter Solberg.
Once you've wandered back down the hill you can explore the exhibitors area and admire the latest offerings from manufacturers like Lamborghini and Audi, or soak up the atmosphere among the Cartier 'Style et Luxe' concours cars. If seeing $50 Million dollars worth of Type 41 Bugattis parked beside the house fills you with awe, a quick detour to the supercar paddock should bring you back down to earth. Being able to poke around more affordable motors like the Veyron, Zonda Koenigsegg and Ferrari P4/5 seems almost normal!
The British weather did not fail to dissapoint but the only thing to suffer was the downhill part of the Organic Milk Race. Lewis even managed to bring a bit of sparkle to an otherwise damp Sunday.

There's no escaping the social networking phenomenon that is MySpace.
Do not fear though, MyWarren.blogspot.com will remain at the heart of this particular burrow. Let's just say that some of the passageways are being extended...

The animal then attacked two police officers, who had been called as backup and were "left with no choice but to use their handguns," said police spokesperson Alexander Niederwimmer.
The elderly woman, who was bitten in the foot, had to be hospitalised and the hare's body was being analysed to see if the animal was rabid.
It has been suggested that the hare's extraordinary behaviour might be "linked to puberty and exacerbated by the hot weather", which has been above average for this time of year in Austria

But the 68-year-old says his trip has been cancelled and he suspects it may be because communist officials have eaten the rabbits. Mr Szmolinsky, who has won prizes for his rabbits during 47 years of breeding them, said: "That’s an assumption, not an assertion. But they’re not getting any more."
