A surprise from Iraq.

I woke up to find a comment from Khalid Jarrar, an Iraqi who is probably best known as the brother of Raed Jarrar, the friend of Salam Pax, and the individual whom he named his journal after. (Khalid's mother keeps a wonderful online journal too, btw. The latest entries are in Arabic, but they get regularly translated into English... just scroll down.)

Khalid's journal reflects a conflict between appreciation of a common humanity and anger against those responsible for the pain his country is going through... which I think is appropriate really. Read deeply and decide for yourself.

I know he's a silly pop star, but...



I hope Marc Almond lives to sing again.

Marc Almond's website has the following:

Marc Almond was involved in collision between a car and a motorcycle yesterday and is currently in hospital in London. He was the passenger on the motorcycle and suffered serious injuries. Last night he underwent emergency surgery and today is in intensive care where his condition remains critical. We will bring you updates on his condition as soon as possible. We're all very shocked at this news and our thoughts, as we know yours will be, are with Marc and his family right now.

If you wish to send a message for Marc please use the following address: thinkingofyou@marcalmond.co.uk

I never harvested my enormous sunflower, but apparently I now have help... Yes, I know the photo isn't the best, but I didn't want to spook the squirrel.
