Special 'Self-Pity-Sick-Note' Edition ...


Please accept abject apologies for unauthorised absence.

But we've got a good excuse. Honestly. Really. Truly.

Get the picture?

Awful ain't it?

And right now, that's just about how horrible we feel.

However, thanks to the many miraculous marvels of modern day medicine (and the good old NHS), we're sure we'll soon be feeling better.

Get well soon, both. To keep you occupied while you're recovering, here are some pictures for you to look at:

Takes a while to download, but it's worth it.

Shucks Richard, you look like you've been rode hard and put up wet! (as they say in Texas).

I hope you feel much better soon - the blogosphere and all of us miss you.

Oh poor you that you don't have the US system of "you will die before we treat you" health care system ;)

Get better.

Btw, Canada’s Foreign Affairs department just issued a report identifying Israel and the US as countries that practice torture.

The emergence of the document — a PowerPoint presentation meant to instruct Canadian diplomats on how to recognize torture cases abroad — is bound to strain relations with the two countries that Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper has sought to strengthen during his two years in power. The document also lists Guantanamo Bay, the controversial U.S. detention centre for suspected terrorists in Cuba, as a place where torture is likely practised.


Amnesty [International] obtained the document as part of legal disclosure in its lawsuit that challenges the federal government’s policy of transferring detainees captured by the Canadian Forces to the Afghanistan custody.


U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins told CTV on Thursday that it was “offensive” his country was on any such torture list and it should be removed.

Heh, Americans are always ridiculing Canada but when we make moves like this they get all hot and bothered. Rock on, Canuckistan.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather, Richard.

Early bath, bed and a bottle usually works wonder for me.

(Well, someone's gotta aliterate in your absence. :*)

I've been out of circulation for a while myself and just got back on feet, Richard. So you have my full sympathies my friend. I sure hope you get better quicker than I did.

I just clicked that link! We never got those on the NHS when I lived in Britain. No wonder, as Twilight says, you "look like you've been rode hard and put up wet!".

Get well soon, old friend.
