Hags of Lag – *Thunderfoot doesn’t get Regressive Crap II – Electric Boogaloo

Well he is at it again!

I have been sat on this for a while because stuff kept happening that required me to run around and be busy. I just attended an all day medical conference (on Breast Cancer and Reconstruction) and figured I need to unwind a bit. (I do have a post about my conference and it is indeed “something for the men”, but today is about the ladies).

Violence and Istanbul

It’s believed to be violence from Syria spilling over. And Turkey has squarely pointed the blame at Pro-Assad elements trying to “drag Turkey into the war”. It’s a sad event but hopefully International pressure can stop the spread of violence from Syria and even bring peace to Damascus.

Manchester

I haven’t been blogging as prolifically as normal because I am in Manchester and “I got to go get wasted”.

I am meeting Tiga tonight after ages so fingers crossed. I will have photos up.

I intend to meet Ally (our new blogger) Fogg and sit around be all British. We will discuss Dr. Who and The Queen. I also intend to meet the few mancunian readers that I do have. I will be blogging just at a lot lower pace than my normal rate. [Read more…]
