My name is tallulah, I live till I die, I'll take what you give me, And I won't ask why

According to an article on BBC online a judge in New Zealand has made a young girl a ward of court so that she could change the name she hated - "Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii".


...can't begin to think why !?

Anyhoo, I hope Florence does the Foxtrot From Fance likes her new name .. Tallulah is just sooooo 1930's depresssion...

The BBC goes on to ask for tales of other odd names, I for one can't help laugh out loud when I hear Air Chief Marshal Sir Graham Eric Stirrup GCB, AFC, DSc, FRAeS FCMI RAF on TV.

He's commonly known as Sir Jock Stirrup.

Eeeeek By Gad !

My ankle has been a bit sore today, and this evening I started to feel sharp pricking sensation on the scar as the leg of my jeans brused against my leg

Turns out they hadn't quite trimmed the stitches as well as they thought you know.

I found about 5mm of surprisingly stiff transparent (plastic like) thread , like very fine fishing line, sticking out of the top of my scar !!!!!!!

Still it's amazing what you can resolve with a steady hand, the small scissors on a swiss army knife and a bottle of Detol to sterilise your kit...

That is all.

(and probably in quite enough detail!)
