stop me and buy one

New just off the blocks - anyone want one? Going cheap.

My own take on the classic "Keep calm and carry on" posters from the second world war.

To catch a thief

When did Lloyd Grossman become the big food expert? One minute he's a house burglar raking through peoples stuff the next he's got jars of his own sauce on all the supermarket shelves.

Lord of the dance

No, the lord of the dance is not Jesus or indeed Michael Flaterly - the king of the dance is 31 year old Matt Harding a "31-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames."

Its a very strange film - its just of a slightly strange bloke dancing in different places around the world but for some reason it leaves you with a big smile.
Why do we humans enjoy, eccentric adventures like this. How does something so seemlingly pointless have such a profound effect on so many people around the world that they are sending Matt emails saying the video made them smile and cry.

Who knows but it is a video that shows, it is a small world after all.
