Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…
1. tennis player Lleyton Hewitt and his wife charged fans A$2 for the wondrous privilege of finding out the name of their newborn child [1a]. Is there no limit to the greed and bad taste of so-called celebrities. Anyway it’s Ava [1b]. Big whoopee.
4. Mohammed (spelt various ways) was the most popular name for newborn boys in England and Wales in 2009 . This ended Jack’s 14 years as number one.
5. austerity measures were announced for the 2011 Australian F1 Grand Prix . The best one of all would be to cancel the bloody thing.
7. and heavy smoking was shown to double the risk of various types of dementia . Is there no limit to the downsides of smoking.Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.
