Happy Birthday To Me

Growing old or growing up? It's all in the mind. You're never too old to enjoy the simple pleasures in life like taking a day off work and having a lie in.

Having begun at a very leisurely pace, Siân and I continued this by taking a drive north to stay in the beautiful Manor House Farm. Once again, thanks to Alistair Sawday, we had struck gold and found ourselves welcomed into Chris and Margaret's fine Jacobean home in the most idyllic of settings. It's difficult to understate the appeal of a place like this, but for the same price as staying in a Travelodge just outside Stoke I guess you pay your money and make your choice!

Of course, the real reason for staying in the lap of luxury was that it is located a mere 3 miles from Alton Towers. Once we'd had our fill of cooked breakfast we headed off to join the masses. In truth the Towers were not overly busy and we experienced virtually no queueing and sunshine virtually all day long too! Favourite ride is still Nemesis closely followed by Oblivion. Rita: Queen of Speed is truly fast (0-100mph in 3 secs) and Air is a great experience too. Ripsaw gets you damp but nothing beats the Rapids or Flume for an all over soaking!

All in all it was a great trip and a Birthday treat to remember. Till next year maybe...

Hare Scare

A crazed hare had to be pistol-whipped to death by police officers in northern Austria after it attacked a retired couple, said a police spokesperson on Monday. The hare attacked a woman, aged 74, while she was hanging washing in her garden at home in Linz, before turning on her husband who had come to help.
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

Bunny Crash

Five hundred rabbits have been killed after a high-speed accident on a Hungarian motorway.
A lorry transporting thousands of the animals overturned on the M1 between Budapest and Vienna, scattering its lapin load across several lanes of traffic.Many of the surviving rabbits, who were travelling inside plastic crates, saw their chance for freedom and hopped into the grass verges.By midday some 4,400 of the escapees had been collected and taken away from the scene, but the road is expected to be closed for several hours while clear-up efforts continue.
Motorists have been diverted on to alternative routes.

Kim Jong-il Has His Fill

A rabbit breeder who sold 12 of his animals to North Korea so the communist country could start its own breeding programme fears they have been eaten by officials.

Karl Szmolinsky sent the huge rabbits to North Korea last year so they could be bred and used to ease desperate food shortages. He thought they were being kept at a zoo in the capital Pyongyang and was planning to travel to the country after Easter to give advice on setting up a breeding facility.
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."

Hot or Not?

Whilst the UK enjoys soaring temperatures and glorious sunshine, the East Coast of the U.S. is hit by torrential rain and flooding.
