This week's compendium

Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…

1. For this [1a] the three atavistic loggers were convicted. But they didn’t get custodial sentences [1b]. I don’t care that their work’s legal and they showed remorse. What do you think?

2. on 9/11 Geert Wilders [2a] spoke at Ground Zero [2b]. He may be a demagogue, but someone has to stand up and say something.

3. on a jollier note, my darling sister Sue sent Sweetheart Vivienne this [3]. Me? Argue with a woman? Never.

4. treehugger wrote of a Chinese pedal-powered washing machine [4]. Twenty minutes of pedalling per load sounds like a good deal.

5. it also wrote of clotted cream sold in Cornwall two miles from where it was made, but which travelled 340 miles to get there [5]. Ho hum.

6. salon.com reported heterosexual women are attracted to men who dance with flamboyant moves [6]. That’s me, babe. (Not.)

7. it also reported a Turkish study concluding fatter men have longer-lasting sex [7]. Cheers. I’m off to buy some creamcakes.

8. darling Kate’s craft virtuosity received more acclaim [8]. XXXXX to you, darling Kate.

Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.

I think we need to get TV and electronic games that are also pedal powered. We could slim down some couch potatoes.
I saw the bit about dance moves apparently the right knee is really important.
Since I had to have my right leg's ACL repaired (it broke) and the only consistent exercise I had (non-jock), was dancing we assume too much knee twisting was the cause.
I prefer slim men and I am not sure that longer lasting is the very best thing anyway!
