October's looking interesting...VP debates and the LHC

So, the Large Hadron Collider (or Colander, as I heard it referred to on one news bulletin) successfully started up and should be giving results by next month which would be excitement itself if were not for the thought of the upcoming Vice Presidential debate on October the 2nd at Washington University. Palin v. Biden.
And I hope America will pay particular attention to the debate and remember what happened in the UK. Blair stepped down after winning an election for his party and we got Brown instead.

Rumple back up and running...

Thought I'd let anyone who was a fan of the imaginary band know, it's back up and running at it's new internet home:

US open radio tennis tonight...

Looking forward to the tennis tonight and will be cheering on (Muscles) Murray to win against Federer. Great commentary on Five Live over the last couple of nights covering the Murray/Nadal match but such a shame that the BEEB can't in some way offer tv coverage. No doubt it would involve large sums of money and re-scheduling effort to get tv rights etc (sometimes it seems like these big sporting events don't actually want people to watch them!) but I'm sure there are a lot of tennis fans who'd love the chance to see this kind of tournament available rather than have ridiculous amounts of money spent on retainers elsewhere in the service. We should champion the UK's sporting stars with the UK's tv station if we want to give the next generation of kids a sporting chance of being inspired.
