Catty,, could it be that you are one of the many who think that there was something a bit "Iffy" about that episode.

Parents who leave three children alone whilst they go out partying can not really be "of this world", can they?... And that is only the start of it.

They are supposedly well educated people..Heaven help the rest of society.


Every silver lining has a cloud.

If they were ordinary people and not both doctors they would have been prosecuted in this country for neglect and their other children removed pending an investigation about their parenting. Nolic

Not quite sure if I should post this observation here, on "wildlife" or on "Tizer's Science".......
I was visiting my tailor last week (Cornwall Hospice Shop)...
They offer an amusing selection of Brac-a-Brac , and this week it  included an unopened tub of .....wait for it...
"GOLDFISH COLOUR ENHANCER"
When I went back a little later ( after the enormity of the outrage had sunk in...) ......some bastard had bought it  ...Doh !

The question that arose in my mind Brad was just exactly was it they were wanting to enhance? Not necessarily goldfish!

The Mcaans, the thing that has always puzzled me is what seems to be a compulsive need for publicity. I can understand it being used in the immediate aftermath of the event but there is something beyond loss driving them. (Or her) I note that she is on R4 with Jenni Murray today?

I note this morning that tweets on Twitter about the subject of the 'super-injunctions' seems to be opening up a completely new view of the power of judges to enforce a privacy writ. How do they prosecute thousands of people? We all know, that once the lid of a can of worms is lifted, privacy is destroyed.

Very sad to hear that Nolic. I adored the Walker Brothers...saw them three times back in the early days. The first time was in a dance hall in Harrogate, I remember being up at the front by the stage, and touching Scott Engel's foot.......

Abit of good news caught my attention this morning.
 
Bedmaker Silent Night went into administration this weekend after failing to win the backing of creditors to cut its debts. But it was almost immediately bought by HIG Europe, the European arm of global private equity investment firm HIG Capital.
HIG Europe has bought the firm’s ongoing business interests, including its brands. Bosses say 1,250 jobs across the country, including the 650 at the firm’s Barnoldswick headquarters, are now safe.
Full story here

Bradders, goldfish colour enhancer....sometimes just a mix of the usual vitamins to keep the fish healthy or may contain natural pigments such as astaxanthin which is a bit like the beta-carotene of carrots. Perhaps also some powder made from shrimp and crab waste which contain the same substance. If you see some glowing goldfish in a pond you'll know who beat you to the purchase.

Wild salmon get their distinctive flesh colour from the krill and small prawns they feed on. Farmed salmon have to be fed a supplement to get the same effect. I suspect that the colouring agent was something similar.

Kev. Thanks for that link. Good news and I hope it translates on the ground as well as it reads on the page. A large burden has been lifted from the workers but if I understand it correctly the original creditors may be regretting not taking the 65% offer. Will they have lost the lot?

Jenni Murray gets a lifetime award for superlative broadcasting. Wonderful and well deserved. She kept going right through her fight with cancer and was competely open about it on Woman's Hour, one of my favourite programmes.

I have to agree with the PCC decision that the Telegraph breached the privacy of the MPs they secretly recorded while posing as constituents. All right, the MPs were at fault for putting up hostages to fortune but nobody is perfect and  and if we were all punished for every indiscretion this would be a chaotic world.

Daughter Susan is back home in her house and is coming to see me soon for a big hug. Nice!!

You're dead right about the colouring agent Stanley, I'd forgotten about the salmon/trout link. I wouldn't be surprised if the farmed fish glow in the dark (on second thoughts, they probably do in Japan now).

Another, wendy, Sad to hear about the death of "john Walker" I was also a fan and still am of Scott Walker, even though he's gone very experimental I find his music fascinating..very jealous you touched him Wendy. I listened to his latest stuff on you tube, and loved the comment left by one listener who'd bought the cd to play on his way home in the car "Lucky to have made it home in one piece!"

Max Mosley and the privacy case. It got me to thinking about how things have changed. In a small community you had to be very careful if you were doing anything dodgy because of that very human trait, gossip. What he was (or still is) trying to stop is supercharged gossip. Think of the media resources and add in the internet and I don't see how anyone can stop it. If it is driven out of the mainstream media by a law it will simply go underground. Thinking again of the huge databases collecting information about us all the time from every electronic transaction, add in survellance cameras and I suspect we have got to the stage where privacy in the old sense is dead, there's not a lot of point worrying about it. Perhaps the only sure defence is to keep your nose clean. One thing seems certain, I suspect that we would have largely forgotten about Max and his predilictions if he'd simply kept quiet.

And then there is FIFA. What a can of worms.
