Quickly - To Mars!

We really need to get that Mars programme rolling to go and bring the poor little rover home*. Seriously though; given it was supposed to last 90 days, it’s been one hell of a successful mission!

It’s just possible that my youth may have been overly influenced by such things as Short Circuit, Doctor Who’s K9, and friendly robots like Twiki. I think that Spirit deserves to be brought home, or at least have a museum built around it so the nasty Martian dust won’t bother its solar cells.

Domestic God


As I had a recent birthday the wonderful Pixie presented me with How to be a Domestic Goddess as Nigella Lawson does lots of cakey goodness :-)

Of course, I had to test some things out at the weekend. A cake (lemon and almond), lovely snickerdoodles, and, just for the hell of it, some fairy cakes!
